Financial Duress...

oh. the joys of money, or lack there of. on one hand i get to spend LOTS of time at home with the family. But i just CANT seem to get a hold on our budget. we try to cook and do things at home and be money savvy, but somewhere its going awry. It's hard to cook and clean and balence checkbooks and get everything paid on time. And if the moneys not there, it's just not there. My husband does a beautiful job of working hard and briging it home. but the bills are higher than the income.

So... here's my vow to do better this october, to have at least $200 in the bank left over so im not pulling my hair out and crying to my mommy.

Does anyone have any ideas? ANYONE!!

  1. Yes, there are lots of things you can do, and YES, you can take the monkeys with you (you just have to get creative). Thanks for your comment on my Multiples & More post. I hope you'll stop by my blog and read about meal planning, stockpiling and couponing. You can knock your grocery budget down significantly by doing some planning at home before you shop (and that makes it easier when the kids are with you). Looking forward to getting to know you better!


Go ahead, make my day
