Who I am - SAHM, married to an amazing man, with 2 wonderful boys, ages 7 and 1. I do work just a little outside the home in order to help make ends meet, but can bring my little one with me.
Goals - to get out of debt! We have credit card debt we're trying to pay down, plus several hospital bills we're still paying on from my c-section last year. It's overwhelming.
How we'll get there - I've been reducing our grocery bill each month considerably and am eventually hoping to bring it down to $300 per month. I'm ashamed to admit that we used to pay over $1000 per month on food between groceries and eating out back when I was working full time outside the home. So no more eating out (except a $5 pizza on Fridays which is a tradition we started with DS1 a couple of years ago) for me or DH. He's having a harder time adjusting than I am - probably because he's out all day and I am in the home. We're also trying to eliminate small mid week purchases which are often what kills our budget and I'm trying to drive less. So I'm hopping on the no spening wagon!
