Making It - Week #3

It's been a few weeks since I posted about our family college life so here's a recap:

Week #1 - We moved to Atlanta fall 2009 with our 2 week old daughter.
Week #2 - We knew money would be tight and had to make our finances last 4 months.

So how well did everything work out for us?
We still needed a month's worth of expenses as expected. Luckily, we were able to sell hubby's textbooks early and a few extra blessings helped out with the rest. As a result, our first Christmas as a new family wasn't as I'd always imagined it, but we were together and happy, with a roof over our heads and no major debt (just one credit card with a very low limit.) Most of the time, credit cards get a bad reputation, but this is one family where it really has helped us out! We used ours responsibly and frugally.

One semester down and one to go. Can we fast forward to summer break already?!
