You all are so kind and supportive and your words are so encouraging. And I thank you for that.
I'm afraid I may have left the impression that I'm rolling in money. I'm not. In fact, it's quite the opposite. Alex and I live a very humble life, a very frugal life that I am so, SO grateful for. We sacrifice so very much for the sake of me staying home with our little boy, which is more important to both of us than anything else.
Would you like to know a little about how wonderfully poor we are??
~I drive an old Honda sedan with no air conditioning, torn seat belts and ripped upholstery. And that's our main vehicle.
~Alex drives a dump truck, which is quite old.
~The bulk of our budget goes to purchasing organic foods for ourselves and our dogs.
~We don't have a land line telephone, just a basic cell phone plan.
~We don't have cable television.
~I line-dry our laundry.
~We rarely use our heater, many days we can see our breath in our home.
~I can't remember the last time Alex and I went out together, or the last time we bought clothes for ourselves.
~Aside from food, everything we purchase is second hand.
We absolutely love our poor and frugal life. We have no debt, aside from our mortgage. We save for rainy days, and we love our little, humble life together as a family.
Now if you will, share with me me some ways you save money?
