sim·pli·fy /ˈsɪmpləˌfaɪ/ Show Spelled[sim-pluh-fahy] Show IPA
–verb (used with object), -fied, -fy·ing.
to make less complex or complicated; make plainer or easier: to simplify a problem.
Simplify by definition, to make less complicated or easier. Simplify seems to be all the rage in the frugal world lately. I am trying to figure out how to simplify my life as a whole. After paying off my car a month and a 1/2 ago. My car spent basically a month in the mechanic shop. After replacing the transmission and 2 minor repairs.... I wiped out my savings account and put 1900.00 on my paid off Credit Card. I feel like I took one step forward and 10 steps back. It is going to be a haul before I can get that credit card paid off again. I thought six months ago that I would be simplifying my life by not having a car payment....but feels like I am back at square one. For me now, I will keep working on paying down my debt, I just don't feel as triumphant about the debt reduction as I did 2 months ago.
