The Paycheck to Paycheck Struggle

I know some people will read this, they’ll roll their eyes and wonder why we don’t change our situation. The thing is, we have. I recently took on a new job that pays a little more. We have cut some things out of our budget just to save a few dollars. Our work schedules allow us to not have to put our toddler in daycare.

It’s simple: we literally cannot afford it, not even part time daycare.

Creativity and flexibility in thinking will play a key role in solving those problems.
