Just a thought

February 3rd, 2016 at 04:46 pm

My hubby and I have always thought of saving money as if it was another bill that just has to be paid. I feel that keeping as much as our hard earn money is a top priority in our household finances and I feel obligated to be a good steward of the income we earn. As a result of this ongoing financial strategy, we've been able to cash flow our sons" college education and pay off our house. Is it easy? NO. Is it worth it? A resounding YES. It takes practice, lots of sacrifices, but the peace it gives us is priceless.

    That's so great! My D is a junior so we're just starting the college search. It's SO much more expensive then it was "back in the day."

    me too! Our budget has always have had savings as first line item. Then all other pieces have to fit. Not house, car, etc first then savings. That seems to be the budget of most people.
