For some reason, I couldn't log in to the forums for a couple of months. Looks like it's going to work for me now. Whew! 2015 End of Year Snapshot, for future posterity: Checking/Cash: $5,416 Emergency Fund: $16,023 Retirement: $113,824 Home Equity estimate: $75,000 Net Worth: $210,263 Should be clo...

Thanks, CecilyC! Payday again and I'm about to hit my goal much sooner than expected! This definitely hasn't been a typical month, but saving $5,000 so quickly makes me feel secure and also gives me confidence that I'm going to be just fine on only my income. 2015 Goals: Pay off car loan - $1,640 - ...

Congrats on the new puppy! It sounds like this was something you'd been thinking about for a while and not a spur of the moment decision, plus you've made a lot of progress this year. Part of good financial sense is knowing when to spend money on things that will bring you lots of happiness, like dr...

Hi B&A, thanks about the car loan. Yes, her dad is in an apartment a few miles away. It's helpful for all of us to be close by. Pay day, plus some reimbursement checks over the past week means good progress on my goals! 2015 Goals: Pay off car loan - $1,640 - done! Build checking account up to $...

Well, never mind. The seller of the house I wanted to buy has decided that she doesn't want to sell, after all. :( I was a little depressed last night, but given all the shock, disappointments, and betrayal of the last six months, I think I'm getting better at rolling with the punches. :) Based on t...

Hi B&A, I'm guessing that my closing costs will be around $2,000, so that's what I'll use the money for.

Thanks, all. Does the Retirement from the Ex have to go into your Retirement fund or can it be used to offset the new home cost, reducing your payback time? Geoff, I think there would be tax implications if I didn't keep the money from the ex in retirement funds. But that was a good thought! I'm sti...

I'm making progress on becoming the new, single FiddleFaddle. Mr Fiddlefaddle and I have figured out how to split up money, etc and have evened out our cash accounts. Have a lawyer working on IRA and pension funds that he will owe me. I've found a house and made an offer. Looks like it's going to ha...

Avocado, Cecily and Lmoot, thank you all so much for your replies. This is a very difficult time, but you are all correct, there will be happiness ahead and I'll make it through this ok. On the bright side, Mr Fiddlefaddle and I have never been compatible on finances (and apparently on other things ...

I've been away from the forum for a few months. Life has changed drastically. Mr Fiddlefaddle decided that he wants a divorce. This is the most difficult thing I've ever faced. ;( Our house should be listed tomorrow and once it sells, we'll move into separate places. There are so many things to figu...

Way to go on your goals! You're making great progress this year.

That's a very nice thing to do for your cousins. Makes me realize how lucky we are to be able to get the basics so easily and so cheaply. (maybe too easily!)

What do you know, something unexpected came up to wipe out my progress. I forgot about a road assessment and our homeowner's association dues. I'm waiting on one more medical bill and then I should be back on track with working on this goal. 2015 seems to be a one step forward and one step back kind...
