In fact, I’ve picked up a few tricks myself.”

In the short-term, we are focused on being resourceful and finding creative ways to pay the bills and have fun on the cheap,” said Kaity. “We’re working towards our main long-term goal of total debt freedom and after that, hope to finally take the honeymoon trip we never had!”
