I was introduced to the idea of a family economy last year by my friend, Ralphie, of Simply on Purpose. After hearing her talk about it a few times, and the benefits of it, I decided it was something I really wanted for our family. We've now been doing it for about six months and have adapted it to fit our lifestyle and family needs.
In the last half of 2017 I made some big life changes. Up to this point I was staying up til all hours of the night working, I was frazzled, frantic, stressed, exhausted, and basically in a fog all the time. I constantly overate, I rarely exercised, and I really struggled to focus.
