During that time though I am happy to report a very good thing and very bummed to reportContinue reading “Not Impressed With Our Debt -Weeks 18 -21”

One Hundred Dollars a Month

I am your typical housewife living in high maintenance suburbia. I have a handsome husband, 2 kids and a flock of pet chickens. I try and feed my family with $100 a month.
