We’ve been living like that for several years. It can be fun to find ways to stretch your income. I can take one chicken and some veggies from the garden and make three to four meals for our family of 7.

Unfortunately, one of our children has a chronic medical condition so our “living like no one else” isn’t getting us past baby step #1 of the Dave Ramsey debt free plan.

I hear you, Spudx7. My daughter was severely premature and her medical debt was a killer. I've been chronically ill for several years (finally on the path to recovery) which just made the hole deeper.

We've dug out from under, by the sweat of our brow and frugality, but we are not in the clear yet.

Makes you value the things that are important and dismiss the things that aren't.
