Back in June of last year, I wrote a guest post on Money Saving Mom about how to survive a season of unemployment. I shared our own personal experience and how we had to find creative ways to get through one of our leanest financial times.
I wrote, hoping that I could encourage someone, who was going through such a difficult trial. But what I didn’t expect was being more encouraged by readers, who commented and shared how they were able to make ends meet during their most challenging financial seasons.
It’s exciting to hear about how people have found ways to live on less, and more than that, they come out of such trials, being more thankful and better stewards of what they have.
If you’re racking your brain trying to figure out how else you can save or earn money to help pay the bills and get food on the table, perhaps the following posts from other bloggers will give you the needed inspiration.
