i haven't even had a chance to talk to DH about this yet, but i know he will be on board. he gets just as excited as i do when we save money. my kids will probably be a different story. but i'm going to risk it! they will be fine and we'll have so much more time to spend together if i'm not in the thrift stores all the time.
the only thing i need besides necessities (groceries) right now is another indoor dog crate. hopefully by the end of January, we will have gotten homes for all of the puppies except the one we're keeping and that will be a little extra cash too!!
