I'm always looking for ways to save money on pretty much anything because we live paycheck to paycheck. I was curious about how many of us are in the same boat. Do you live paycheck to paycheck as well? You can just vote yes or no and bump the post if you want. No need for reply if you don't want to :)

Yes and no. We've leveled out so we're not really stressing things anymore, but we're never going to get anywhere else either. I guess so?

We do. An it don't bother me. Rather live paycheck to paycheck then not at all. We work hard to save but something always comes up. We manage though

No. We wouldn't have children if we did. I like security and do things for our kids.

We put money into savings every week, we have some money for extras after mortgage, bills etc. I have to watch our money, but I wouldnt say we live pay check to pay check.

Since becoming a sahm I would say its been tough but it just means we stay home and have a lot of family time.

Oh yes! Dh was applying and searching for jobs for 2 months! We are still playing catch up. Luckily he found a decent one. It's still rocky though.

Yep. That's us. I have made some cloth diapers for our dd so that saves us about $40/month. Not going out to eat saves a lot of money. No Starbucks coffee. Buy clothing at thrift stores.
Try writing down everything you spend money on for a whole month and see where you can cut corners on.
