Our oldest is 24 married and expecting her first baby. Yes, we are going to be grandparents. We have 5 children, and many pets. We love animals. We bought 5 acres, 2 years ago and it has been nicknamed "the farm". My husband is living his dream. I find it as a wonderful opportunity for our children to experience so many things.
I am blessed to be able to stay home with our kids and homeschool them. I love staying home and helping my kids learn in so many ways. Another thing I love to do, is to see how far I can stretch my husbands paycheck. It can be time consuming but rewarding.
Another thrifty habit I have is...... throwing something away unless it is really broken.
We have so many old shirts the kids have outgrown, I keep them to use to wipe the windows. I love the griddles you can get at Christmas time for like $10. Ours has been left in the oven and baked, and the handle is broken, but it still works. A good friend of mine bought me a new one for Christmas and now I have 2. Until it no longer works, I just can't get rid of it.
I started this blog at the encouragement of a couple friends and my wonderful husband. I feel what we do is ordinary, but I thought I might have something interesting to share.
