As someone in financial angst right now I found this article incredibly helpful in coming to terms with my situation. I whole heartedly believe that less IS more when it comes to financial stability. If it were just me I’d live even leaner, but I have three children and they deserve the luxury of living in a neighborhood close to their school, fresh whole food on the table, to be transported in a safe reliable vehicle, etc. I’m trying to be patient and live in moment with them and not long for the days when I won’t have to shell out $1,000 for their free public education (insert sarcasm and an ironic emoticon here) at the beginning of each new school year and constantly at the store buying strawberries and milk.
