How We're Gonna Do It

I just got a job. Yay, right?

Unfortunately, because my new job comes with benefits, I'm getting a 40 to 50% paycut.


I need to get creative about how we do things.

How are we gonna do it?

I don't know.

I'll let you know how it's going to happen, OR if we can't make it so.

  1. hey Kathi - thanks so much for stopping by Framboise Manor and leaving a comment - i appreciate it! and i hope that you enjoy the pizza tonight - teehee! please let me know how it turns out!

    i am commenting on your first post and promise to go through all of your other posts! i am so glad that you got a job but with benefit cuts - yep - yer gonna have to get creative!

    i have some people in my blogroll who have been through similar situations - and they made it work. you should check out my friend Jennifer at www.doublenickelfarm. and my other friend SciFiChick at

    they are really great women who have learned how to do things on the cheap and not suffer! (if those links don't work - go to Framboise Manor and you can find them on my blogroll).

    another place to get great ideas is at the Simple, Green, Frugal Co-op - who's web address i am not sure of but you can also find it at my blogroll.

    i promise to read all of your posts and hope that i can help with some suggestions and advice. we left lucrative, high-paying jobs in the city, moved to the middle of nowhere where the people are poor, and are living off of my tiny miltary/government pension. but we tightened our belts and practiced for years and i hope that there are some things that i might be able to help out with.
