About Me E-mail
Have you heard the one about the homeschooling family that lives on less than $22K a year in an area that costs above 100% (116%) of the National CoL Index?

I haven't quite figured out why so many people still persist in perpetuating the myth that living on a single income and homeschooling on a dime aren't possible. I can only suppose these are people who can't imagine life without a daily trip to Starbucks and dinner out several times a week. The people who actually shop at malls (*shudder*) and think "Brand Name = Best". The people who really live by the "Keeping up with the Joneses" mentality.

That? Would not be us!

Welcome to our world. We cook from scratch. Buy from thrift stores. Find 95% of our homeschool materials for free. This is my blog and this is how we do it.

Free printable recipe cards.

GRAPHIC GARDEN offers some very cute, free printable recipes cards you can use with the "Gifts in a Jar" recipes I mentioned in my last post. The site owner specifically says you can give these cards as gifts, so you are not bound by any "home, personal use only" restrictions.

I love your blog! What a great wealth of information! (pun intended) I will definitely be back. As a single working mom, budgeting is very important ... I'm still learning. Thanks for sharing all of your great finds!

I just love Graphic Garden. What a lovely lady to share her talent so freely.

Your blog is already one of my most favorites! We are living on a little over $1K a month (one income here too) in order to accomplish our goals. It is a challenging time, but reading such encouraging sites as yours is making the journey a little easier. Your inspiration makes me feel like it is really possible. I can't thank you enough!
