I am a sorta stay at home Mom. We have 3 children from 6 to 1. We own 2 small businesses. I am a Real Estate Broker, with a degree in Education. My husband is a contractor. I love Jesus, crafting, deal shopping, and my family 🙂
The purpose of this blog is to get out of debt. I want to see where our money goes (mostly food and debt) and work on really trying to get it under control.
People who know me, know I do NOT pay full Price for anything, except eating out. We eat out too much. My husband eats lunch out almost daily. Then I like to eat out for lunch at least twice a week. Then there is nearly every meal on the weekend. The donuts around the corner. And dinner like 2-5 times a week.
I bargain shop for all of our basic household items. We never pay for deoderant, toothpaste, shampoo etc. I then give away, stockpile, or sell the rest in garage sales.
WHY? September? It was the only month that doesn’t really have any birthdays, holidays or events planned for our family. I am really trying to think of a 2nd month. But January has my b-day, February has son’s b-day, anniversary & valentines, March is Spring break, April is the baby’s bday. Maybe May? End of school is hard because preschool lets out mid May! The summer, whew, impossible. Maybe the first week of every month? Let’s just get through September.
