I don’t know about you, but for my family, in spite of the economy appearing to have turned a corner, we’re struggling to make ends meet! From grocery bills, to the added cost of school activities, to trying to #payoffdebt that resulted from a job loss, we’re STILL trying to get back on our feet. If you’ve been there you know, it isn’t fun, and some days life just seems to be slanted against you.

Don’t get me wrong, times are getting better, and these days we DO find a way to put more than ‘mac-and-cheese’ on the table, but for some of us it’s still tough out there.


  • We don’t take vacations (I think the term "staycation" was invented for us.)
  • Our cars are older than dirt (I hold my breath when it's time for an oil change.)
  • Shopping for back-to-school clothes has nothing to do with style and everything to do with a houseful of growing kids.

If this sounds familiar, follow my family’s experience as we #DigOurWayOutofDebt or at least find ways to make life enjoyable again. It’s been a long four years, but together I know we can find our way back! #savemoney
