Pleased to meet you, wont you guess my name?

Hello All!

I would like to take this opportunity to give a quick introduction. My name is Haley and I am a mom of a 4 year old girl and 5 month old boy. I am a musician's wife, which means I pay the bills and he gets the thrills. Although I am very lucky to have a job that pays a livable wage, after paying for childcare, health insurence, tolls, morgage, car payment, student loans, so on so forth....... I find myself often gliding into work on gas fumes and serving my family lots potato based meals the day before payday.

Heck, since I am still paying back the 10k I somehow racked up in hospital bills for my no frills, no epidural birth of my son last July, its been potatos, noodles and stirfry for my family the last 5 months. As for my little bundle of joy, he is rocking the "gender non-conformist" look wearing his big sis's old clothes.

From back in the day when I payed my way through college (except for that last semester when I took a student loan) to today where I am a working mom in a single income family, I have had many friends tell me they dont know how I do it. Well doing what you have to do is no big feat when you have to do it, but I decided at the urging of some friends to create a blog to share my tips and tricks on how to make it on a tiny budget with little free time to diy on those oh so tricky days right before payday.

Nice to meet you, and thanks for reading!
