Here's a good tidbit

I liked this article.
One area we have down pretty good is the money area. That is, we live within our means, we have no consumer debt, we give and we save. There were several times that I wanted some extra income. The Preacher put up with it for a while, but then got tired of me being involved in other things. He would ask me what it was that I wanted, that I didn't have. I never really could say anything specific, just "more". More savings, better clothes. ( I really would like better clothes) But nothing specifically that I needed. Having some extra income was not worth the strain in my marriage.

I am grateful that the Preacher is so tight, scratch that, prudent with our money. He'd rather us cut our expenses that have me try to earn more income. Works for me!

My husband is the same way. I've learned how to live with less... and you know what? I'm so busy being happy with all of my other activities, I honestly don't miss having "things" the way I used to.
