We’re about to get real transparent in this post. What I learned from a year of being Broke. Let’s get to it.
Yes, it’s true. I really went there. For the past year we have been flat broke. Broke like we have never been in our adult lives. Broke like we would have been screwed if it weren’t for generous grandmothers and family members. It’s embarrassing to talk about…yes. Yes it is. Especially for someone who had her shit together when she got pregnant at 19 and kept it together until well… about a year ago. But I also know that we’re not the only ones. And I learned a lot from the experience – and not in the sentimental sense. I’m talking the practical nitty gritty – I know exactly how many days you have before the bank comes to repossess your car – sense.
