I couldn’t believe this picture was taken six years ago. The kids have grown taller and (healthier) now. This was the time when hubby and I have lesser health issues unlike today. On a positive note, we have a grown up child who is already working and a college student who is doing well.
It is always a struggle to manage one’s finances, most especially when you are working on quite a tight budget. There is just one too many bills and dues to pay, and groceries to buy, plus vaccines and pedia or dentist visits for the children to think of, too, not to mention those extra expenditures, like health premiums or motorhome insurance, where applicable. You also have to think of setting aside a portion of your earnings for your monthly savings or the children’s trust, on top of that. Balancing everything is no easy feat. A little creativity and resourcefulness will come handy during these days, to think of some ways to augment the family income and somehow help you get by, at least, until the next paycheck.
