Reading the news today, it’s apparent that Americans are “tightening their belts,” “making do” and “scraping by,” or any of the other euphemisms used to describe these hard times. Worse than the Great Depression? Well, the landscape isn’t littered with millions of people migrating from their dust covered homes to tent cities in California...but money is getting tighter, especially for single parents or parents going through a divorce.
As a divorced father, the good news for you is belt tightening doesn’t have to compromise your quality of life. In fact, it might increase it.
