Hey...my name is James and i am married with 7 kids....5 of them have 4 legs and bark a lot...the other two are rambunctious lil hellions that never seem to slow down or stop breaking stuff...we seem to have problems with stains and adopting more pets than we need and spending money on stuff we definitely dont need...having our kids has helped me realize that we need to start living a lil more frugal and find other ways to have just as much but spend at least half as much....this site seems to have a lot of good ideas so i decided to give it a try...
