New to the blog

Hi all and Happy New Year!

I was new to the BC blog (just joined in the past couple of weeks) and hadn’t really had the chance to get to know people, sooo, I’ll introduce myself formally to this group!

My name is Kathi…mommy to 4 1/2 month-old Lindsay. I’m currently working outside the home and am the major breadwinner in our family. We are committed (both my DH and I) to getting me home to be with our daughter, but that means cutting our income by almost 65%!! YIKES! We live just outside of DC in Northern VA, which complicates things because of the cost of living! But we have been reading lots of books on being frugal and have already slashed our grocery budget in half after reading “Eat Healthy for only $50 a week”. I’m looking forward to sharing with and learning from all of you!!
