      do this just so mom can get out. I noticed last week that not only

      were we paying all our bills on time or ahead but that we had money

      left for actually stocking up at the grocery store on good deals. I

      now have a pantry full and freezer full so that I don’t have to

      necessarily shop every week besides the milk I need. I’m so happy and

      christmas will actually be a joy this year without feeling

      overwelmed.
