I feel stupid, having a nice house, and then worrying about paying the bills. I keep wanting to explain when we got the house, costs were a lot lower. I would say the combo of our mortgage, utilities, and transportation have increased by about $700 a month in 4 years. Four years ago, I was almost $500 ahead, and had a growing savings account. Not fair.
