Have you ever thought about how much money you are saving your family by doing things yourself?
This crossed my mind today and I like to think of it as money I made my family. I think of it that way because I would do these things regardless and by doing them myself, therefore, I made money :) The way I see it, the more money I save my family, the more money we have to do FUN things.
