Almost 3 months to the day and my husband starts work again on Monday! I am so thankful I had the tools available to survive including coupon and social networking skills. Our family of 6 (4 kids age 12, 15, 16, 18) did very well. I learned a lot and because I have been preparing for this with the way I have shopped the last 3 years, we had a Prepared Pantry.
Because of our Prepared Pantry, we did not have to purchase the following items during the three months:
* toilet paper
* paper towels
* laundry detergent
* cake mixes/brownies
* breakfast cereal
I will post more updates on things I wish we had done differently later. Happy Day! We have a job!!
