    Heart Been around for a while

    I just wanted everyone to know that I have used this site for a few years now and it has been a key to being able to keep a grocery budget in an extremely low amount. I work 2 jobs while being a single parent to a child active in a couple of sports at the high school (one sport being swimming-try feeding a growing boy that swims about 8-10/week on less that $100 at one point in our very recent life). I rarely receive financial help, so it's all up to me to get the logistics figured out.

    I've taken so much from this site and replaced so many of my expenses for quick conveniences for a little more effort & well laid plans.

    I appreciate everything that has been posted and this site has touched so many people on so many levels in mine & my son's life...even if they didn't realize that budget101 exists. I also want to gloat a tiny bit. when I first started using this site for advice & how-to's and such, i had many friends that thought I was nuts and I constantly heard "oh I don't have time for that", or "you can't really save taht much making it yourself". Well folks, the recent economic "turndown" has shifted a few many friends way of thinking.

    I also want to say that I really think this site helped me find a good guy to add to my family (or he is adding us-either works). For all you single ladies out there (well guys too); you'll be surprised at how much the opposite sex will be impressed with their first entirely home cooked, completely made from scratch meal. It use to be a dying art that is making it's way back with the help of a wonderful site like this one. I grew up on a self sufficient 80 acre farm in the 80's-this site really helped bring me back to my roots. Thanks

    Thanks to all who contribute!


    Sincerely,

    Not going to be a single parent for much longer in Smyrna, TN
