What's the point?

Allow me to introduce myself. I am currently a stay at home mom, which I love. However, this does leave us short one income, which conventional wisdom states in this day and age is impossible. My husband is a union carpenter (which pays fairly well for blue collar work), but due to the current economic climate he has worked very little this year. This puts us in a bit of a bind financially. I’m not complaining, just trying to illustrate the situation.
Now while I may like cooking more than your average person, I am in no hurry to start doing laundry by hand again down at the creek (my friend Kerri‘s assertions that I am a “pilgrim“ aside). I do however maintain that there are ways of making our lives cheaper, easier, and less reliant on Wal-Mart and Costco for just getting by.
So here I present to you some ideas, tested and tried, in the hopes that it will help you and your family through these rough financial times. Furthermore, I hope that others will chime in and add their wisdom. It used to be that these sort of things were imparted to you by mothers, fathers, and others in the community. In today’s tech age when the world has gotten so small, our community should be stronger and filled with more voices, rather than separatist and uncommunicative. Whether you work or stay home, have children or not, are a woman or a man; whatever race, religion, creed, or color you are, please if you have something to add, feel free.
Glad to meet you.
