Being an adult isn’t simple. There are bills to be paid, chores to perform, and plans to keep track of. And things get even more difficult for parents. However, one single mother decided to take advantage of a bargain and will never go back. Michelle “MJ” Boyle claims that she can survive on only $75 per month as a mother with obligations.

MLJ lives in a rental home with her two children. Because she has costs to pay, she works double shifts and takes on numerous jobs to meet all of her duties. Although she faces many problems in her life, she refuses to let them prevent her from enjoying the best possible life with her children. She wants to demonstrate to her family that as a single mother, she can not only provide for but also be a role model for her little ones by proving that you can have it all.

Changing up her living arrangement was another idea that helped MJ turn her life around. Because she was paying so much money to rent a house, she decided to go all the way and build her own house from the ground up. MJ’s rental home in Sherwood, Oregon, cost $1,600 per month. As a result of these costs as well as all of her other responsibilities, MJ believed that building her own house was the ideal answer.

MJ’s life took a turn for the worse after her divorce. She previously owned two properties, which she gave up during the divorce process. Her children are approaching adulthood, which means they will be leaving for university soon, requiring significant financial investment.

As a result of her desire to provide excellent college education to her children, MJ decided to relocate. This helped her save money on her monthly rental payment and put more money into the college funds of her children.

“My life has been a series of unfortunate events. I have been divorced twice. I have built two houses, and I lost the houses basically in the carnage of my divorces.”

MJ was able to cut her costs by building her own house. Given her present life circumstances, she dubbed her home the “empty nest.”

Because it was inexpensive and suited her needs, the MJ family constructed a tiny house. She not only made a financial move that improved her finances, but she also had the money to send her children to college and save for retirement.

“I built my first house, this house, basically using cash and sponsorships to make sure that I have a paid-for nice, comfortable house when I retire. Now I’m building a few more tiny houses that I look forward to renting like on Airbnb or a try it tiny or other VRBO kind of platforms and create some income so, that’s next.”

Now, she says she is able to keep her expenses at just $75 per month. That’s fantastic for her!
