Unless you are new to my blog,
You know that you will have to read through the fine print before I get to the cheap stuff.
As I am
For instance, I am not married to the man of my dreams.
Heck, I am not even married at all!
(Thus one income)
I have raised five children as a single parent.
Just having five (or 8 at once) children is an oddity nowadays!
(And sort of insane!)
I do not live in my dream home.
(Although it can become much closer to it with Nate Berkus paying a visit to me.)
I did not and do not love every minute of parenting.
Some moments are downright painfully hard!
(I get suspicious of people who say they do.)
I do not have a formal education beyond a semester at a junior college.
(Yet all five of my children have graduated from or are currently attending college.)
I do work at a job that I love!
AND I live below poverty level and raised my children (according to the guidelines), close to extreme poverty.
I can say we have been very, very, very blessed,
And we have never had to do without necessities.
As I have Windows shopped (I made a funny) a variety of blogs, I have not seen money saving tips on my $Cents-Less Budget$.
(Budgets, like people and chocolate, come in all sizes.)
So I decided to add a new feature (?) to my blog
And to share some ways that I have found to save (or spend) money.
As with the original purpose of my blog,
I hope I will share something that may be useful,
or at least spark some creative financial embers
(making sure not to burn a hole in your pocket)
and maybe help you or someone you know to keep their common cents.
