This blog came about from a debate with a friend about finances and the ability to live a full and adventurous life without having access to a large sum of money. I realized towards the end of the discussion that she believed I was making far more money than I did. A small lightbulb went off in my head and I began to look at the life I was leading and the many things I had accomplished while earning a rather small annual household income. I realized at this point, that I, my love, and our 3 boys were living a nice lifestyle. We had cars, owned a home, had a little land, vacationed regularly, and didn’t have to struggle too much. All in all, it’s been a good life. Needless to say, I felt I had information and money-saving strategies which others might find valuable and thus, I sat down to begin this blog.
Dirt Poor Living will discuss ways to save money, live healthy, and take adventures with what little income is earned. The money-saving strategies discussed can be used for a family, couples, or single people in the community and all are welcome to participate in the comment section. We all have money saving advise which can be relevant to our community so I encourage everyone to share. And remember, just because someone isn’t earning as much as the neighbor down the road doesn’t mean they have to live like they’re poor. Each of us deserve a little luxury and a little adventure without the worry of missing meals not being able to pay next month’s bills. With a little tweaking to our current life we can accomplish great things and reach higher than we thought possible. When we all come together and share our tips, strategies, and life experiences, we can dare to dream again.
