  1. That looks like a really great thing to do. I just hope against hope that we can sustain and practice being a one income family especially that I’m planning to stop working by end of the year maybe 🙂 So help me God.

    1. All good suggestions! In other words, we have to be willing to say “no” to some things. After a while, we’ll find we don’t really miss them anymore.

    1. Thanks! I’m still a newbie, so I’m looking forward to meeting other bloggers through your linkup!

  2. Wow, that is a fabulous idea – living as if on one income even though you still have two, but doing it gradually! Love it. 🙂

    1. What was great was having my paycheck direct deposited to our savings account. If the money didn’t have to pass through our hands, then we were less tempted to spend it.

  3. We were able to shovel away money having a similar process and thank goodness because I was extremely ill while pregnant with our daughter and my doctor put me off work when I was 6 months pregnant. We needed that money for living while my husband was away training. Trying to build it up again though while on a single income right now is harder!

    1. I hear ya! When my husband was unemployed, we had to dip into our savings. The balance was down to the last few cents when he found a new job. Perfect timing, right? Little by little, we’re trying to build up the emergency savings again. It does take a while, but ever little bit counts.
