So we hear all the time about people that think money grows on trees and spend it like it is going out of style. Is the any other mommas that live below their means? If so how/why?
DH works and make quite a bit of money and i run my own business from home which does pretty alright. There is just myself, dh, dd4, and we are expecting a son the end of sept. We live in a cute little house that is extremely reasonably priced and has everything we need and love. We own our cars which are definitely not brand new. We have internet but not cable as we arent really tv watchers. We spend about 300-500 a month on groceries. We pay around 150 a month for electric and our water, sewer and garbage is paid for by our property manager. dh gets insurance through his job and we just pay a small amount towards that. We dont go on extravagant vacations or eat at fancy restaurants. we buy the essentials and have little to no need for a ton of extras.
Anyone else do the same?
