Hello Everyone. When my kids were younger I stayed home with them and did daycare to bring in extra income. I prided myself on how I could stretch a dollar and did such a good job with our budget and staying on task. As the kids have gotten older and times have changes... we moved to a different city and now I am getting divorced... I need to get back to my old frugal ways. Money is tight and there should be no reason I cannot cook for my children every night. And now that I am dating a penny pincher (yes even men can be frugal, lol) it is giving me motivation to start saving money instead of wasting it.
