Today I’m sharing this month’s SimpleMom.net column about our family’s journey to a debt-free life. I’m answering the most asked question from my first column: how did we stop living less than paycheck to paycheck? Every situation is unique, but you can visit Simple Mom to read what worked for us.
From the post:
In my last post, I introduced myself as a person in debt. I hoped to be a source of encouragement for anyone who might be struggling with money. I was touched by the comments that followed. Thank you.
One question seemed to come up: how did we get back on our feet when living less than paycheck to paycheck?
Some of you are in a tough spot through circumstance; maybe you’ve lost a job, you’ve faced illness, or worse.
Our money problem wasn’t an income problem, it was a spending problem. We made enough money, but we were far from careful with it.
