Just for fun, I've started another blog...here...it is about all the fun my family has saving money. I know that doesn't sound like much fun. We are southerners stuck in NY for a twelve year span. We have seven more to go. The cost of living is OUTRAGEOUS. We are not only trying to survive, but have enough money to finish college for ourselves, send Lil' Bit to college, pay off all of our debt, and buy a house down south when we leave. These are rather lofty goals considering our cash flow.
The only way to do it is to have an extremely tight budget. Budgets are no fun, but we've managed to make saving money a game. We all try to outdo the other in making a buck stretch. For example, The Big Guy bought a brand new bread machine at a yard sale last year for $1. Lil' Bit bought a full-sized Sanyo keyboard for $8 two weeks ago. These are just two of our many, many frugal victories. Anyway, I started that blog to cheer our family on in our Low Falutin' ways. Stop by if you like to save a buck.
