    How a Family of Four Manages to Live Well on Just $14,000 Per Year - Yahoo! Finance

    She stopped eating out and learned how to cook.

    Everything in the home is either hand-sewn and or made from scratch.
    The family swapped cable for Netflix and Hulu.

    She goes to the grocery store once per month, pays cash, and never goes over budget.

    They are a cash-only household but keep a credit card for emergencies.

    They fill up their tanks once per month and combine errands as much as possible.

    They paid for both of their cars in cash and have no car payments.

    She skips all kiddie snacks in favor of healthier, cheaper DIY options.

    If she can freeze food, she will.

    She uses a food co-op to save on fresh produce.

    They took advantage of Nevada's declining housing market to score a cheap foreclosure.

    This is all common sense stuff. A lot of which can be improved on further. (Buy in bulk, expand credit, etc.)

    It's sad because in America, common sense is so rare it's a gosh darn superpower. They don't teach any of this stuff in schools.

    How can you hate cooking? :(

    So that's why men drag women home from clubs ~ they're in need of a sammich maker once finished banging it..

    There's always an option of growing your own fruit & veggies (taste better than bought anyday), etc..

    Think common sense went missing on a global scale..

    Cooking for one usually results in eating out, or doing something really simple.

    Not fun. Especially if one makes enough to feed an entire army.

    Gotcha.

    yeah man, 99% of recipes are for meals for families... so its hard to cook for just 1 without piles of nasty leftovers.

    plus im lazy. I dont eat out a lot, but i dont eat good for you food. I eat macaroni, tv dinners, soup, cereal... hot dogs... etc etc
