Welcome to ‘Making the Ends Meet’ blog! My name is Bethany and I am a free spirited, hardworking, creative, and chaotic single mom of one wild and crazy boy! Years ago, I started my journey of a single parent and had to cut costs everywhere I could to make ends meet. I was working 2-3 jobs and 70+ hours a week just to make that happen. Along the way, I found tips and tricks to stretch a dollar, catching up with piled up bills and paying off debt slowly. While still on this journey, I thought I should start sharing with the world what I have learned to help others in this situation! 

In this blog, you will find Recipes, DIY projects, tips on Couponing, and other low cost hints to help you in your life! Shares and comments are always welcomed and encouraged to find what others are doing to make ends meet! I am excited to share with everyone all my knowledge and looking forward to learning more from YOU!!
