Thanks for the link, that was a good story. I quit my teaching job at the end of the 2008 school year and even though we've had a lot less money, we are so much happier. In 2009, my husband's income was as a research assistant at MSU and he made $19,000, I supplemented our income with the few cakes I made and working for my mom at her tax preparation office, so we probably had an income of $20,000 last year. We paid all of our bills, ate well, had fun and were under much less stress, which I believe helped strengthen our marriage. It can be done if people are willing to make changes to their lifestyles. It is my opinion that God has blessed us with abundance and we should be thankful for that and keep in mind how truly blessed we are to live in the United States. The frugal lifestyle is about more than just money, it's also about learning to be content with what you have. Ok, I guess I've gone on enough! I hope you're having a great summer!
