How to Through A Larger Than Life Small Wedding on a Budget

This one is as simple as crowdfunding your honeymoon. It might sound strange at first, but do you really need another blender or set of dinner plates? Instead of having your guests purchase a bunch of things you’ll end up trying to return anyway, why not let them chip in for…

On the upside I can appreciate that we just closed on a new house (my first home) which is beautiful and perfectly accommodating for our lifestyle. What I would have done differently was keep better track of our funds while purchasing items needed for our house. While moving it was difficult as we were without phone and internet service which I depend on for checking daily account balances. I have a tendency to blame some of it on my DH who tends to be quite the spend thrift but meant well. To make a long story short we knew July was going to be a long, unpredictable month to endure as far as wondering if we would have enough food, gas $ to go to work, cleared accounts, etc., on literally a daily basis. Forget the fun stuff - we couldn't go anywhere, do anything together as a family, unable to afford babysitting if my SO and I wanted to go out or whatever else. As I keep reminding myself to see the positive side of it, we had time to unpack, get reorganized, cleaned, did laundry, and accomplished the important part of moving into our home so we could look like we live in our new home instead of just moving into it.

Today I'm particularly happy that we survived thru this challenge. We can actually sit down and appreciate that we are in the process of becoming reacclamated to our new surroundings, making new friends in the neighborhood, watching my 5-yr-old son adapt well to our home, make new friends with kids his own age and arrange his playdates with very little effort. I'm comfortable enough to take walks, use Avon brochures to network with new neighbors and start growing my business again after finally recovering from our financial crisis. Every day I'm thinking in my head, PLEASE - NEVER AGAIN! That was too scarey for me. I will remember it as a learning experience that I hope my SO will learn as well how important it is to stay caught up with your bills, not even to mention our mortgage, because once you lose good credit it's soooo hard to get it back. I have always been financially responsible and that is something I will always be proud of and will never change for anything or anybody, especially when you're not only responsible for yourself, but your family too.
