That $400 of insulation will probably be paid back this winter though. So not a bad buy. And it will continue to pay you back for years. You're doing great! I love how to the point and honest you are about your situation. Getting out of debt is hard work, but it can also be fun...if you know how to ...

LOL! Your last post had me cracking up. No offence to anyone on the boards. It just sounded like a really bad soap opera. Unfortunately, one that is played out in far too many lives across North America. Jackie has a right to be anxious. Her parents are consistently not dependable or responsible. He...

Wow Ellie! You've done some good stuff the last six months or so. I too, am married to a naturally easy going frugal man. It does have it's challenges. But it also can be a great study in how couple complement each other. I definitely like the finer things in life. But thanks to him, I've learned to...

Today is my favorite day... payday. :lol: Me too! I looked back at my bank statement for the past 2 weeks to get an idea of our spending. Here's what I found approximately: Walmart - $170 (groceries and other things we needed/wanted... I know $30 came from DVD's) Gas - $70 Eating out - $120 Money I...

So did you get the callback? You mentioned taking a test last weekend, I think. How'd it go? Was that all the same thing? You have some real positive things happening in your financial affairs Aminah...despite the bank and your line of credit. At least you got that settled to your benefit... Running...

...we went shopping on Saturday night. Fed up with the weather and the crowds, I made the decision to shop at a store that was close by instead of driving all the way across town. Big mistake. Ugh. I hate that when it happens. We have an expensive store not far from us too. I have it figured out th...

First I'd like to say 'kudos' to DTR for posting here. He and his wife obviously have been blessed with many resources. Sometimes that blessing can become a curse. Handling a lot of money can be difficult...if for no other reason than you have so many options. I admit, his total debt makes me gasp. ...

Shaun, I think you have to go where your heart is. If you want to start a business, then you need to try it. I would suggest careful planning though. Your children are still pre-schoolers/not borne yet. I'd suggest you drive truck till they get to elementary school age. Then your wife can find a job...

About those unexpected categories... Have you thought about adding those up over the course of a year and dividing by 12 to get a figure to set aside each month for those? We found that helped us a lot. It's hard to work at first, but once you get into it about six months it becomes easier. We had t...

"My company hires people on a full-time basis, but when the work volume is low enough they offer Voluntary Time Off: you can go home early if you like, but don't get paid. They've been offering a lot of it lately due to the U.S. economy." Bummer! Good thing you're looking at other jobs fro...

Husband got an interview at a bank, with just about 24 hours' notice. Hope your DH gets the job! I didn't take VTO at work this week, What's VTO? I will be bringing a box of mandarin oranges (cheap, healthy, different, and the only thing that it's guaranteed the entire team can eat) on my day. Soun...

I'd suggest paying off the student loan with the money (if you can!), and if there's any leftover, pay it to your dad. If dad doesn't want it yet, put it in an emergency fund so you won't have to borrow from dad again... After student loan, dad, and EF, I'd place retirement, then mortgage. Just my t...
