WOWee, I can't believe it's October! The summer flew by.

If you're around please take a minute and introduce yourself. It doesn't matter if you're an old time, newbie, or a lurker. Pop in and say hi! We'd love it!

Tell us something about yourself - or your family, or whatever! :)

Have a great day!

Amanda

Shell is in the house :)

I'm Susanne from northern California. Married with grown kids and 4 grandkids.

We're on a low fixed income and way in debt. My DH is disabled and we're barely getting by.

Julee in Arkansas. I'm new to the board.

Married 21 years, mother of a 17 yo DD. Only debt is our house and our vehicle. Still not able to save money and I'm trying to get ideas here to plug the holes in my budget.

I'm Katie :) In Virginia with my DH Brian and DD Caroline.

We're trying a no extra spending month. Whatever we take out in cash is what we spend, nothing but gas on the card. We've had a chronic overdraft problem this summer and it's time to put an end to it.

Buying stuff for my daughter breaks my budget, found a way to make Christmas less costly though!

Lyn, 25, New Zealand.
I'm currently studying full-time and working somewhere between part-time and full-time. Very slowly digging my way out of debt and trying to keep my budget on track.

Hi. I'm Colleen in Tampa. We're expecting a baby in March, so we're getting ready for all the financial changes that will bring.


Actually, we've been focused on building a big EF for two years now, so I'm feeling really good about it. We moved out of the city and out to a rental in the burbs, decided to swap our cars when the baby comes instead of buying a "new" used one for me (DH will get my two-door and I'll get his four door), and just generally do whatever we can to stock away
