Otaku On A (Tighter) Budget

I'm resigning from my current job by the end of the year. It's been great working there, and I'm truly thankful for the opportunities I was given during my tenure. My new job will be in Manila, which means my family and I will probably have to relocate. It entails bigger responsibilities and longer work hours, which translates to less time spent with the family and for myself. Blog posts may become farther apart for the first couple of months, but I'm sure everything will normalize eventually. I'll be giving up a lot of plamo time to take on this new challenge. On the other hand, I can start making some serious plans towards buying/building my own house, and start saving up for my son's education - you know, real-life stuff. To do that, I'll be tightening the already tight budget I have for the hobby.

I wrote about time management a few months ago - how a family guy should only work on his plamo projects beyond his established SFH. This time, I'd like to go into the financial side of things.
