Necessities and Luxuries
This is kind of sad. I was doing a mental assessment of some of the things that I and my family spend money on and categorizing these expenses as either necessities or luxuries. In my mind, cable television and Internet both qualify as necessities. No matter how hard I try to move them into the luxury category (and, if I'm completely honest, I haven't tried that hard), cable and Internet just won't budge. They've become utilities much like electricity, gas, and water. I don't know what that says about me.
