A Leap of Faith BUT......The Best Decision of Our Lives!

In 2010 I was fired and my husband quit his stressful job. Bills were piling up and finally in June 2011 we decided to adopt a frugal lifestyle. Admittedly, not as frugally as some, but far more so than most!.
We moved into a tent and got a membership with Thousand Trails....it was great!. I was living on unemployment and we still had money to spare at the end of each month.
After finding a 24 foot camper that we could make payments on, we moved into it just in time for the cold winter weather. We didn't have a clue about "winterizing" and "condensation", but we sure as hell found out quickly!. I can tell you we went through a lot of paper towels and Damp-Rid.
We no longer had the money to even afford a dehumidifier. No stocks or bonds. No income. Just a leap of faith!.
I found some neighbors living in the same campground that were looking for maid services, and my husband wound up helping out around the campground to help pay for our necessities.
We moved to Pigeon Forge for jobs in July 2012, and we absolutely love it here, and don't plan on going back.
Go on free yourself....i promise you will not regret it!.
