    DH and I are 100% committed to pay bills off! We are used to eating out often! I was worried only budgeting $30 week for eating out would be so hard to do. It was fine...we did it without complaint on either side. I know it's only been 1 week...we now know we can do it! Here's what we owe...

    I think it's time to resurrect this challenge. Who will join me? $25 is an arbitrary amount, that, a few years ago represented the average amount a person would get per week on food stamps. Well, food costs have gone up and so have benefits. Check this link to see what you might receive in...

    I know it's only Wednesday and instead of a four day work week I only have three days this week. But it seems to be never ending. The two year that I keep in my home is a child that I don't even recognize this week. She's had several long weekends away from me lately with the holidays and...
