HOnestly, in my case! My husband made the decision for me! Money is an issue whether both parents are working or not! You decide what is more important... a fancy home & car ( in which regaurdless you will go indept over) or a simpler life where your kids see you and do much better in their lifes. So many people are more worried about what their friends think! We still are able to pay our bills and have a nice house, we have just had to give some luxury's up! I had to give up getting my nails done, my hair appointments are a treat now, and so is tanning! LOL!!! I spoiled myself! My DH wouldn't pay for that EVER!! Family time is every night!! Instead of every once in a

Debt or no debt, I think you have it all figured out.


And I love this phrase with all of my heart...


So I put on my big girl pants
