Growing up, I have distinct memories up of my mom and dad discussing (and sometimes bickering about) money. To Bonnie and Bob, keeping a tidy home was just as important as keeping their finances organized and in check. Only now that I am in my mid-thirties, do I realize what a monumental test of will it must have been for my parents to save money and thrive on a modest income—all while raising two twin girls. I often find myself wondering…just how did they do it? So, I decided to ask them.
