Bottom Line {July}

Okay, so normally I use this post to discuss how we've done financially over the past month. I share new goals or progress on old goals, and I talk a bit about the financial lessons that we've learned.

Today is different.

Oh yes, a lot of things have happened on the financial front in the last 30 days - a lot of things we never anticipated. I could talk about how our goals have changed, how we've decided to dream big, and what we're doing to make it happen, but I'm not going to talk about us today.

I've decided to dedicate this Bottom Line post to sharing the story of a friend. A woman who is known for her frugality, for freezer meals, and bargain hunting. A woman who lives within her means while raising four kids on a beans and rice budget. She and her husband live on support while working at a local Christian camp - the same camp where I volunteered during junior high and high school. Her budget is maxed out, but she looked for a way to give more, and that made her think outside the box.

Meet, Samantha...


If that's not inspiring, I don't know what is.

Next month, I'll share about our progress on the mortgage payoff plan, and what new projects we have up our financial sleeves! 
See you then!

Do YOU have a pet project that you want me to know about?
How do YOU think outside the box when it comes to giving?

  1. So THAT'S what "a penny a pass" means? Wow, I love it! And I bet the kids do too :)

    I'm looking forward to YOUR update, Carrie, but thanks for sharing this today.
