I think all that you are doing is a very positive step for your family. Once you get into the swing of things (preparing lunches, coupon clipping, etc.) saving will become second nature. Remember gasbuddy.com for cheap gasoline prices in your area!As for your DH's restore car, I know how he feels. I've been a "car guy" since I was born. Dad raced cars along the eastcoast and I would sit in the grandstands watching him (and he was just a guy from The Bronx!). I have a 1997 Mustang convertible and either I do work on it or my friends help me. I was told replacing headlights would cost me about $400.00 at the dealership and I needed to do this to pass inspection. I found brand new headlights from a seller on eBay for $80.00 with shipping and my friend installed them for me. If the car isn't costing you anything, I wouldn't push the selling. Perhaps he could work off some of HIS stress restoring the car. Not to sell for a profit (that may come later), but something he can do for him. Spending money on luxuries is just out of the question right now, and if he can go around to the junk yards in Queens and Brooklyn, I am sure he will be able to find parts. Just a thought about helping him with his stress and anger. Have him watch Barrett Jackson to see just what restored cars sell for!I hope that you are taking care of YOU during all this... You seem to be the glue holding everything together, so take care of you when you can.Hope
