We are really focusing on building a solid savings account. Little by little, I hope to have a good chunk of change built up by the end of the year.

DH went from being self employed and working for himself (and barely breaking even) to working for someone else. So for 2014, essentially both of us are making more, I just got a raise, so we are funneling the entire increase into debt reduction and saving for a newer car for me in the fall. We are also cutting back on a few things to also put towards debt. And, in the fall the littlest one enters kindergarten, so our daycare bill gets cut in half, that's definitely another big raise!
