I'm always fighting with my money! lol ... I have control, I don't, I have control, I don't! I have to get a better handle on my finances. I use to have a handle on my money but I like to think I always have it and spend, spend spend! lol

My hubby works  only part time  as a sub. teacher at high school, I am a stay at home housewife. But we both volunteer at the ministry. But I control the money.  Meaning i take care of all of the bills.  We refinanced the house in 2014 so we could get a lot of things done. Well we still have part of it in the  savings, but have replaced the roof, all 13 windows had the outside stuccoed and textured with  a paint job, still have plenty to do inside.  We borrowed it in 2014 and I have almost paid the whole thing off using my social  security check and we live off of what his is and also pay all the bills. It can and has been tight once in a while because I make 2  payments a month. and will be paid off in another 2 years. can't wait.

I try to track our income and expenses - see how much is leftover after our bills gets paid and how much we can save.
