I am reading Mary Hunt's book and although I am not quite half way through I am already planning to use some of her suggestions. Dh has just started to work an extra contract and so I am waiting to see how much money I will have to work with and I will be re visiting my budget. I actually worked out a budget (took days and hours) that included everything I could think of. I found that without considering how much was coming in (to begin with) and working on what i thought we could spend on everything and it worked out very close to what is actually coming in. But now with Mary Hunt's suggestions and with dh's increased income I will have to rework it a bit.
All we have left to payoff is our credit line and it is at 19,000.00. My next goal is to be able to cut up all our credit cards! Dh still uses one for work expenses but he will be getting company exp card soon. We still make the occasional cc purchase which we payoff right away but I want to stop using them at all! So this week I will cancel/cut up all but two of our cards.
I have learned so much from this and other boards and I wanted to say thank you to all of you who are apart of this community.
