Is Money Tight? Here’s 10 Ways to Stretch Your Budget

Today I'm sharing something really personal. Due to some recent changes at my husband’s work, our income has dropped and we’ve had to make some big changes to our family budget.

We’ve had to learn new ways to budget our money, and remember some old techniques we used when we worked really hard to get out of debt five years ago.

It’s not been fun, but it’s reminded us of what’s important and how faithful God is to always provide.

Is money tight for your family too? I want to encourage you by what we’re learning.
