We did manage to save a little bit, which is better than we did last year, but since we're getting ready to move across the country we really want to buckle down and be wise with the money God has given us and use it to its full ability instead of just throwing it away on "stuff."
We also have a savings account to help with the cost of moving or for an emergency (hopefully we won't need it for that!) and want to put as much as possible in there while still being able to break even.
