stretching that dollar (or penny!) and living without a salary

Ok, I'm sure this has been discussed, but who lives off of little or nothing? Does anyone actually succeed in a salary-free life? I am working on that right now and would love any suggestions! Jennifer

    I am currently living on a small disability check each month. Not sure if

    that is was you were asking for.



    Maybe if you mentioned some of the problem areas specifically that you are

    working on, I can come up with suggestions.

    We come pretty close. My husband passed away last year and we are

    living off of $1345 survivor benefits I get for my son. Our bills are

    right at $1200 a month. So, that gives us around $100 for any

    emergencies that come up (car battery, tire, new kitchen

    faucett,heating element for the furnace) and they do every month. I

    am trying to educate myself so I can get a decent job for more than

    $6.50 an hour. I have been a stay at home/homeschooling mom for 14

    years. The Lord always takes care of us. We don't have an abundance

    but we do okay right now.



    God Bless

    Terri

    Have you looked into what it might take to become a teacher for

    homeschooling in your area?



    I don't know any of the laws surrounding it, personally. I do know

    someone who went from a public teacher to teaching students in a

    home school environment, and she makes more doing that than she did

    when she was a teacher at a public school.



    She teachers her own children, as well as those of several other

    couples she knows, and they take turns with teaching some things.

    I'm not sure how it works, though.

    I have been living on disability for 13 years, I get $675.00 a

    month. It is difficult but I am finding ways to get the things I

    need for free or very cheap and I am still able to manage having a

    savings account. It is not easy, but it can be done. I have three

    grown children and 10 grandchildren and I manage to buy them birthday

    presents and Christmas presents too. You can do it just tighten your

    expenditures to only the necessities. Join yahoo groups that give

    away free stuff and buy from craigslist.com (you can find very nice

    things there for very cheap prices). Good luck and be happy.

    Sincerely,

    Connie
