When the universe gives you a huge bowl of greatness it tends to balance things out by throwing some shit into the mix! Finically we are living on a tight budget due to me not having as many hours. We have had to do some MAJOR cut backs and I have taken on a second summer job to try and catch up before our little guy arrives! I really cannot believe I did, it sounds crazy to be pregnant and working two jobs but I know it will be worth it in the end! This way we can get back on track and start saving for our dreams and goals. I have had one or two folks ask “well how are you going to afford it all when you go on parental leave? Kids are so expensive!” Simple answers for that are babies/kids do not have to be expensive unless you make it that way! Very little in a babies world needs to be brand new! Many people sell their barley used like new baby items at less then half of what they paid for them in store! Budgeting and being frugal is key! We have hit up a few garage sales in our area, we found a lady selling newborn to 1 year clothing for 25 cents per piece! There were some really nice outfits some still with the tags on, but all were very pink and very frilly so we sadly :( couldn’t take advantage of that steal. But we have found some awesome baby items for next to nothing that we can use! ...I love garage sales and so happy they are in season before our little boy is due!!
So yes we have had to cut back on a few things that we will miss but in the end I know together we can get through this little rough patch and it will be fun! (yes FUN! believe it or not some of the best family times we have had happened when our funds were low!!)
Thank you to my love T for installing this awesome clothesline, to not only help out our bank account but our environment to! I love seeing the clothes all hung up makes me feel all warm and fuzzy!! (It’s the small things that get me excited! LOL)
Stay Positive & Happy Monday to all!
