"Family," of two here: we bring in a combined 47K per year before taxes. Previous to now we've lived off of 20k combined and on my own (unmarried) I've lived from about 12k while living in government subsidized housing. I currently have a job that does not derive me much pleasure, but I am...

Booya! That was fast!
Thanks Tim!
One year was kind of the generalization I had come to, but it's good to hear it from someone else!
I'm looking forward to that 12 month mark!

Hello, I love GRS and read everything that's new every single day and although I'm about as frugal as they come, my ability to calculate the benefits from this frugality are somewhat limited. I can do basic discount math to make sure I'm not being ripped off or to be sure that I'm getting the best d...

A pysch degree isn't useless, even if you don't pursue a masters. I have seen all sorts of people with that degree go into different fields and be successful. It isn't just about the degree, it is about the person's ability. I have interviewed hundreds and hundreds of people in my career, and one t...

Just to clarify, there is no evolutionary drive to reproduce. There is a drive to have orgasms. They are not the same thing. ^Thanks for bringing this up--I saw that "god," word above and started to get worried about the direction of this topic. :) ^ My husband and I do not have and will ...

I couldn't agree more. Consumerism, not just holiday related, is swallowing the world up into a big disgusting downward spiral. I was offered religion as a child, but chose to go a different path. As an adult, I am not a christian, so I have nothing to celebrate on Dec. 25th besides a nearly univers...

Reading through these posts and my mind is staggered by some of the prices quoted, one post stated that they rented for $1600 per month instead of $4000 per month payment,, my first house I built in the early 60's [a small three bedroom brick ] I built a piece at a time and sold in 1969 for $15,000...

A trip to your nearest college area will generally upturn a lot of kid-friendly freebies: I live in a pretty small town with a college nearby, and the freebies go on and on... Generally, if there is a college, there are a lot of free activities to keep crime and weird boredom side-effects on the com...

Oh boy, I love this kind of stuff! Here are some of the "tricks," my husband and I use to stay afloat: Do NOT use dryer sheets or fabric softener: They're full of chemicals anyways, and expensive; yuck. Stay fit: I probably exercise for about 12 hours a week; including fun late-night bike ...

Giskard, Thanks for the info. I was just gathering my income info from a site that listed the incomes for personal trainers on average in the area I'd someday like to live (the west coast), so yes, there are big differences that create that 50 average. Also, I work 40 hours a week, full time. No ben...

I generally hate to be argumentative, but why is starting a family related to the same sense of success that starting a business is? I suppose it's all about values, and if someone REALLY values starting a family and strives for it, accomplishing that would be a success just as losing weight if one ...

Thanks to everyone for all of the advice! Update: My husband has been slowly taking on more and more household work, and I've also found that I don't mind cleaning on my own that much if there isn't much else to do. He was transferred to third shift a few weeks ago, so now I'm alone a lot, which pro...
