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.

Some more money talk in the media.

THE BEST FINANCIAL ADVICE EVER - I don't necessarily agree with all of this, but there are many good points here.

SCRAPING BY ON $150,000 A YEAR - despite the title, this one is mostly about learning how to scale back and live within your means while working to build up a savings.

LIVING POOR AND LOVING IT - Good attitude about living with less. (She also wrote this: SURVIVING AND THRIVING ON 12,000 A YEAR and has a FORUM BOARD TO DISCUSS BUDGET LIVING.)

Hi, this is my first time reading your blog. I read your profile, i'm impressed. I'll be back. I need all the advice i can get. We live in California, our mortgage is $2000. I am the full time working parent, my husband works very part time. I am now on full pregnancy disability (our 5th child) and we are squeaking by....but, i'm finding it fun!
