Living In The Real World

How to live well and within your means – tips, tricks, and possibly useful information

The Beginning February 13, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — nicmarie166 @ 2:05 AM

So, I had been going along my merry way in my own little world, taking care of my son, surfing my favorite sites, and trying to figure out how to stretch a not-so-big military paycheck, when it hit me. I regularly read and use a lot of sites and blogs, but I only just realized that I cannot seem to find any that pertain to living on a budget, indulging in my love of fashion in design but on a budget, and entertaining a toddler when living in a mid-size town. 

Every magazine I read or site I peruse seems to assume that I have a paycheck at my disposal of upwards of $100,000 a year. I realize there are many out there who have hundreds of dollars to spend on the newest trend or gadget, groceries and entertaining, and household decorating or rennovating, but I feel like there are also a TON of us out there who have limited funds to indulge ourselves and family with.

So my point with my blog will be to share what I come across, whether it be fashion, design, decorating, rennovating, cooking, shopping, entertaining, reading, and on and on, that falls within the arena of living on a budget and wanting to live well, and if I come across and sites or blogs that are also trying to do what I do, I will pass them on as well.

I will also go so far as to beg others out there to pass on their knowledge to me. 

Wish me luck!
