So, I'm broke.

Yes, broke. Really broke. I make about $10,000 a year. Yes, that's a 1 followed by 4 zeros. I'm am so far below the poverty line that the poverty line looks luxurious to me.

I am a single mom, recently divorced. I am buying my own home. I am self-employed. And I'm living a life that I enjoy. We want for nothing.

Oh, there are things that I would buy if I had more money, but I don't need any of those things. Not even close to need any of those things. We have food on the table for multiple meals a day. I'm homeschooling my son. We have two computers (well, three, but one is in the shop right now).

And this blog is about how I'm able to have everything that I need, while making the little money that I make.

Don't get me wrong, I want to make more money. Emergencies are, well, a crisis around here, and I'd like to have an emergency fund. And I've got goals that will help me to do that. But right now, we're making it on what I bring in, and it ain't much!
