Desperate times call for desperate measures. This post is for families that are pulling out all the stops and are just trying to survive financially. This happens to all of us, it’s just a matter of time. My family’s super-financially difficult season started a couple years ago, and by the grace of God, we have made it thus far. You do what you have to do to provide for your family! Even if this mom’s story and tips doesn’t line up perfectly with your situation, I hope you can find something encouraging and useful.
