Kylie Hemer and her husband Matt have three children: 12-year-old Tyler, 4-year-old Bodie, and 1.5-year-old Kobi. The father of the family works as a truck driver, this is the main income in the family, and Kylie found a small part-time job – she cleans baby strollers.
As the woman says, once every 2 weeks, money is credited to their account, but they immediately go to the expense, and it turns out that they all live from paycheck to paycheck. Kylie began to think about how to save money!
She began by deciding to spend solely on the most essential items. She started by making a list of the most important purchases for the next two weeks. This includes loan payments, rent, electricity bills, and communication services, as well as kindergarten and pharmaceutical purchases.
The woman then had roughly $ 1,500 leftover, which she deposited into the account. Since then, the family has avoided eating at cafes in favor of cooking at home, and they prefer to walk in free parks, swimming pools, and fairs rather than shopping malls.
Kylie buys the products necessary for cooking in large supermarkets, where profitable promotions are often held. She also constantly uses coupons and discount cards. Previously, Kylie bought lunches for her husband and children for work and school.
Now she started cooking herself, which significantly reduced the cost of food. She also bought a thermos for her husband, in which he began to carry coffee brewed at home.Mom learned to cook pancakes, cakes, sweet bars, Chupa-chups and potato chips by herself.
She admitted that spending time together brought her family together. The husband is now confident that he is able to provide for the family and even save money for the education of children.
