If you have an item for this FIN, please contact Poddi.


What is your family situation? we are a family of 8. My husband works full time and I am pursuing doula training. That will help with finances or at least give us a bit of a cushion for savings and hopefully extras like christmas and birthdays.  Our kids are so good and understanding about our situation.  We usually do okay with bills, but we don't have a lot of extras if any.  We do our best to save money by not having cable or satellite, cell phone for my DH is paid for by his employer.

Which holiday(s) does your family celebrate? Christmas

Any allergies or sensitivities in the family (e.g. cat, dog, smoke)? smoke and heavy perfume
