The Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Have you joined the Ultimate Blog Party 2010

If not, then head on over and join in!

A little about me... I am a 35 year old mother to five (4 of which I personally brought into the world and 1 that I got to pick to be a part of my family when I married his dad.)  The kids range in age from 16 years- 20 months.  I am married to a wonderful man and we also have to furry kids.  I work part time in pediatrics and  teach one course a semseter at a private college.  I spend much of my time running kids to orthodontic apt's (2 are currently in braces), soccer, cheer and running practice.  Since the birth of my youngest I have worked part time.  With our income being cut, my budget needed to refleck the change.  It hasn't been easy and I am still making adjustments.  My goal:  to spend no more than $350 a month for all food, toiletries, dog food, cleaning products and diapers.  Basically anything you would buy at a grocery store, drug store or Target, Walmart or K-mart. 

What is your goal/ challenge?  How are you doing?  Link up your blog!

  2. Aren't coupons the best?! I get "tired" of clipping and planning at times, but I know I'm saving SO much money by using them, and it allows me to be able to stay home full-time with my kids, and I even started working on my Master's degree (online) last month! Thanks for stopping by my blog during the UBP!
