Since we invested in land this year, my husband and I are trying to tighten our expenses every month while making sure that our daily needs are OK for us and the kids as usual. We have to stop buying things that are not important in the house to save money. Like we were planning to buy another couch and chair set for our living room to replace the old ones. Since the old couch and chair are quite OK , we decided not to buy new ones at this time. I know to make this investment is not easy for us especially for my husband who really is not used to the way we are budgeting our money now. But we know that this investment will be worth it in the future.
