I'm finding there is a drop, but it's not immediate. Since I left 8-5, I initially spent quite a bit on home improvements and other stuff to make life at home full time more to my liking. But once those purchases were paid for, I've experience the drop in expenditures..although it's also apparent that inflation in basics (utilities, groceries, gas) will chip away and require more income in the long run.
