We are a family of three that want to share a little bit of our life and how we try to squeeze more out of every dollar. We budget diligently, do most of our own repairs around the house and spend cautiously (spending the money to get this website hosted was a bit unsettling, but I think it will be worth it to me and I hope you also).
Me and my wife are in our mid-forties, we have been married for 24 years and have a daughter in her early teens. We live in the southeast where summers are hot and humid! Air conditioning is one thing that is a must for me, so you probably won’t see a post about how to live without your air conditioning.
I am a Mechanical Engineer, my wife is a stay-at-home mom and our daughter is a high school student. We each have our strengths and weaknesses, sometimes I’m not sure if these attributes are strengths or weaknesses. I am analytical, don’t mind fixing stuff and love to research (to find a better way or to save money). My wife is creative, supportive and does most of the daily chores around the yard and house. Our daughter is, as you would guess, a mix of us both. She can do anything that she sets her mind to from writing short stories to fixing stuff to shooting a bow and arrow competitively.
So, why did we decide to create this website, to help you be able to do more with less money and achieve your financial and life goals.
We want to share our life experiences, past and present, how we try to squeeze more out of every dollar in effort to help you be able to do more with less money and achieve your financial and life goals.
