Living Better...for Less

Surviving Tough Times

Volume 10, Number 44

by Gary Foreman

Hello to All My Frugal Friends!

Have you ever felt like your life was out of control? I think that most of us have. When that happens to me, I always feel better hearing about someone who has been through (and survived) a crisis.

That's why I especially enjoyed a personal post from a friend (and sometimes contributor) Faye Prosser. She recounts the last two years of her life in a post she called "Debt, Diet...and Divorce."

I don't want to encourage divorce and I'll let you decide whether a diet should be in your future. But, if you think that debt will always be a problem for you, please read her post. I'm sure that you'll find it inspiring.

And once you've been inspired, start your own trip to being debt free.
