DEFOREST (WKOW)--The Brown family: Juli, Larry, Lexi and Larry Junior. Like so many in America these days, they're working hard without enough to show for it.
"We feel like we're just starting things all the time and it gets kicked from underneath us and we're just starting again and starting again," says Juli.
And they're trying hard. Both Larry and Juli have full time day jobs and in addition, they get up early every morning and deliver newspapers to bring in extra money.
"Our coach, Mike, has really encouraged us to get a receipt for every single thing. we have a little canister on the wall when you walk into our house and it's packed with receipts.
And that simple change of saving receipts to track where they're spending their money has already been valuable to the Browns.
