Sometimes it can be stressful, but our faith in God keeps us humble and believing that we will be okay - and WE ARE!
It's very interesting how I've been able to make a 'DOLLA' HOLLA! Meaning, I stretch it and stretch it, since my hubby hasn't had work in almost three years.
He does his best to find substantial work, but on my lunch breaks at the office - I CLIP coupons like a mad woman! Just on things we use each day, not on 'novelties' just cause they're on sale - big difference!
We shop at the farmers market for produce, instead of the grocery store - SOmetimes local farmers do a much better job in throwing in extras if they see you're supportive at the market - and it encourages the kids to want to try new veggies with ranch dip...
Either way, our fam saves money - and we save on milk/gas - We stay home more on weekends other than galavanting all over the city like we used to to shop in the mall...
Indoor games are popular - and coloring book time with my two small ones.
In all, I try not to let our financial situation become an overwhelming burden - I try and keep the positive momentum up in my house and my husband encouraged that we will be fine -
