    I think that just about everyone is struggling with this particular economy.  I do believe that hard, dedication, and patience will pay off!

    Thankfully, our kids are grown.  But we are finding it more challenging to save money and have some of the things we enjoy.  My husband retired due to a disability, and our income is about 30% less and that has been a tough adjustment.

    Now we are a one  year old baby .  There are not more problems in our life with economy.  But nothing balance for saving. Now we haven't more needs.  Tomorrow  what can i say?

    I'm not sure I would say we are struggling, but we are making some hard choices about how and what we eat, cutting back on piano lessons even when the kids remain enthusiastic,and NO VACATIONS. We take fewer trips into town to conserve on gas. Higher food prices and higher gas prices leaves little extra money in our budget for emergencies.
