What would you be willing to sacrifice for family finances?

Would you give up organic food?

Would you move out of a large fancy home for a smaller, more economical one?

Leave the big city for a small town?

Let go of health insurance?

Give up your car?

Wear clothes from a thrift store?


What would you do?

Well I went from being a SAHM to a working mom so we could save every penny I make to pay off our mortgage faster to get the hell out of this house and into another. Our current mortgage is thirty years. We already had seven in it. With all my money it will be cut down to ten and we will be out! As long as it sells and we find our dream home that suits us

I have done all of that except giving up the van. There would be no way to get kids to appointments without it. We also dont have cable or internet

I'm never leaving my big city. I need health insurance. Thrift store clothes, maybe. I don't eat organic anyhow.

The only thing that would be feasible on your list for us would be wear thrift store clothing.

We don't do organic now, We already live in a small town, We would NEVER let go of health insurance, We can not survive without a car and mine is paid off anyways, We already live in a very small and economical home at only 800 sq. ft.
