How to Celebrate a Wonderful Christmas — Even if You Don’t Have Any Money
I was honored to be featured on DaveRamsey.com sharing about how our family learned to have a wonderful Christmas — even when we didn’t have any money to spend. Here’s a snippet from the article:
I’ll never forget December 2004.
My husband and I had been married for almost two years, I was nine months pregnant with our first baby, and we were living on a beans and rice budget. There was not a penny left for Christmas presents that year.
When we got married, we committed together to an audacious goal: to go through law school debt free. The goal sounded cool on paper, but let me tell you—living it out wasn’t so easy.
Beans and rice got old really quickly. Driving a very used vehicle that occasionally wouldn’t start at all wasn’t fun. Not being able to afford to even shop at the thrift store was hard.
