In 2005 things started to change drastically in our economy. Both my husband and I were involved in Real Estate. Peter building it, I selling it. Like many other people our reality was turned upside down, almost overnight, and we had to start all over again. It is during this time that I would constantly hear about the high prices of food and the general worry of what to eat within a budget.
Although I had not been living on a budget myself – but was going to have to do so now – I knew I could help with this problem. I was born in the US but grew up in Bolivia where people eat homemade meals every day. My mother was always a world class ‘budgeter’ and she taught us the value of not overspending or wasting (food or whatever it may be). This is a quality I forgot once I was back in the US – shame on me! I got caught up in the race, was doing well economically and simply took it all for granted. It is funny how life finds ways to bring us back to our senses!
