The battle begins

I am so tired of being short every month. I start strong every month and then in the end I break. I was a stay at home mom for 3 years and when we realized our income was going to go down, we felt that we needed two incomes to make sure all bills where paid. It seems that I fall short on the most important thing. Organization! I must fight the urge to eat out or have carry out. I struggle with my husband and children on household chores. My husband does well on keeping things picked up on his DAYS OFF but when he works is when we struggle the most. He works 4 days on and 4 days off. The house is nice and neat when he is off but when he works and I work. I come home and cook and he falls asleep in chair. I started organizing a little every night. A few kitchen cabinets, a couple of drawers, and I throw away a few things. I hope I can get my life in control. It is a constant battle. I think to be frugal you must be organized. I hope I can do this!
