Part 1: Building Our Dream Home While Getting Out of Debt
I’m so excited to have my friend and fellow blogger, Alicia Bertram, guest posting today to share her family’s incredible story of building their dream home, nail by nail, from start to finish. This, all while paying off consumer debt and making some crazy decisions along the way to reach their goals!
When my husband and I were discussing the possibility of me leaving the workforce to become a single income family, it was very scary, financially. My income was an important contribution to our family’s finances, but after the birth of our third child I really wanted to spend time home with the kids.
Little did I know at that time, I’d find a number of ways to add to the family’s income, beyond the contribution a stay at home mom makes in the day to day work she does for her own family.
Today I’m going to show you how I earn $500 per month in my spare time and how I hope to triple that in 2017. I plan to revisit these strategies later this year to update readers on my progress so you can use these for yourself.
