You Might Be A Poor Newlywed If...

... your husband calls you at work just to tell you how low your power bill was that month.

... you think using one coupon at the grocery store makes you amazing.

... you find an old wal-mart gift card in your hubby's wallet and check the balance thinking there is a dollar or two on it. When you hear that it is worth $28.71 you both (literally) scream for joy and start talking about what all you can buy.

We recently came into some major cash...

... when you don't get a bill in the mail that day, you freak out and think something is wrong.

... when one of you has cash it feels like you found buried treasure.

... you can only  grocery shop on the second or fourth Thursday of the month because that is pay-day.

I am sure many of you can relate, with only one of us working a salary job (The Hubs) and me working part time and still in school, things are tight. However, I sure can't complain too much because every bill we have gets paid on time and after they are all paid we still have some left over!

Oh girl, I totally feel you on this one. The hubs and I are only living off of his salary right now because I still can't find a job! If I find something I can use a coupon for, I am elated!!

Hmmm, that's STILL our life and we're far from newlywed! Honestly, it's a great way to live! Day by day, knowing He will provide! You guys are off to a GREAT start! :)

It can be tough sometimes but at least we don't have to do it alone!
