My name is Liz and I am a stay at home mom in my mid 30s. In the last two years I have lost my job, had a baby ( I was pregnant when the aforementioned job was lost), gotten married and learned how to live on faith. By that I don't mean faith in a higher power, although that definitely has helped, but faith that some how there will be enough to make bills next month. This economy has been especially hard on our family... but I can't blame the economy for it all. Like most Americans, I did not have enough in savings, had too much debt, etc.
Now, I am learning how what we have is enough... enough to make us happy and enough to keep us sane. We are climbing our way out of our debt, and trying to build our savings. I cannot change the past but I can take control of the future.
Okay so as the title suggests, I hope to put some of the ideas I have learned, tips and plans in this blog in the hopes that some one else gets something out of it.

  1. Isn't it empowering to know that we can make do with what we are given? It's a tough lesson but one that maybe we all need to learn. I find it so inspiring that so many in our generation, once thought of as the lost generation, have gone back to our roots and are living a simpler, better life.
