You know the old saying….Money Talks, Bull**** Walks. Well, the Military (or life) can give you both. That is where the Finance 101 section comes in!
One of the biggest struggles a Military family (or any family for that matter) faces is money issues. Low pay and large families are usually what you will find. Unless you’re an Officer that has some time in service or you are a spouse with a great paying job, more than likely you will find that without a strict budget and financial plan, times will be tough and paychecks never seem to last.
But don’t despair, help is here. Military spouses are some of the most frugal people on this earth and I happen to be one of them.
We know where to find deals, how to cut costs and feed a family of 6 on a dime. Ok, maybe not a dime. Whether you need help making a budget or finding ways to keep cash in your pocket, you will find it here.
