Before winter break was officially over, we finally managed to find a pretty sweet spot to take the kids.
And it was free.
Am I living in New England, or heaven?
But “free” and “on the beach”? I’ll take it.
Or ‘frugal’ as my husband likes to call it.
And sometimes, I still do.
But we try to keep that craziness to a controlled minimum.
And all the extras, we’ve just had to live without.
At least not
unless you’re my sister or my husband on most days.
If all blessings come from Him, then certainly Chris’ paycheck is one of those things.
It’s been an incredibly liberating experience, learning how to take control of our spending.
Learning how to be intentional about buying things instead of accidental. Ever caught yourself standing at the checkout in Target and wonder how the heck you just spent $250?
So if you were thinking of feeling a bit sad for us because we don’t drive a super sweet uber-van that fits our whole crew…
And when we eat out it’s fast food instead of posh food…
