FINDING WAYS TO STRETCH YOUR HOUSEHOLD BUDGET
I have been a military wife for 22 years and for the past 2 years I have become a stay at home mom...The transition was not easy at first. Having two steady incomes for a family of 5 is so important. Or so I thought!
I learned that I not only had to change my shopping and spending habits, but I also had to change my way of thinking..... The first thing my husband Patrick and I did was sit down at take a real hard look at our finances. The good news is, we have never been materialistic people so our outlook looked promising.
Next we took a look at our savings and really broke down every scenario that could possibly happen.
(THE REALITY IS THAT MOST FAMILIES LIVE PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK). We are living in times when bargain shopping,
Cutting coupons and swapping babysitting is a reality in most homes....
DID YOU KNOW?
DID YOU KNOW? That it is imperative that military families make sure that they are utilizing ALL of the services that military bases offer their service members and their families. There is no simple answer, just keep making smart decisions that will ensure the financial future of your family.
I would love to hear how your family has adjusted to becoming a one income family.
