Ever heard the phrase "living on a shoestring"?

I'm not sure where it originated, though I suspect it's from the Great Depression. Back then, people made do with very little. Times were tough, but they got through them together.

We've gone through some tough times financially throughout most of our nine years of marriage, and the last year or so has definitely been challenging. Through it all, we've worked together and stuck it out, and been incredibly blessed.

We're sick and tired of being in debt, and are committed to getting completely out of debt as quickly as possible.

I'll be talking about our budget, what we do to save money, and things we do to still have a good time. Because it's no fun being on a super-tight budget if you're not enjoying life too  :)
