Sometimes, no matter how hard we work or how many pennies we've pinched, we're still left with a defecit. We shop at Wal Mart almost exclusively – I make our own baby wipes, our laundry detergent and even our bread… I haven't gotten my hair cut in well over a year. My husband cuts his own!! Even with running a defecit, we are blessed and lucky to have the lives we have ❤. I'm proud of how hard we work to get ahead in life & you should be too!
First – I apologize: I've been spending a lot less time on this blog the past few months in order to make some extra money (from home) with web work to help pay the bills. It's a lot of work – and it's rewarding – but at the end of the day, my family is still living on what feels like a financial tightrope. We're doing better now that I am making $$, but it's not easy and we don't get to enjoy things that many of our friends get to.
Sometimes, when you can't go out for a manicure, a restaurant or spend more than $2 on your kid's halloween costume -you need to find some inspiration from somewhere. This has inspired today's post – quotes about being broke. I hope that those of you who are in similar financial situations can draw some inspiration from these and keep persevering on!!
Remember: We are in the worst recession since the Great Depression & we'll make it out of this one of these days!! Expect more reviews, posts & tips from me soon. I'm finally starting to balance the working/baby thing
