So where I have been...


My husband and I got married in 2002 and we were managing our finances- paying more than the minimum, always on time, and never missed a payment.

hello


Welcome to the board. We get paid once a month like you and it about the same amount. 2900. Do you have quicken on your machine. If you do then I will tell you how I do our money maybe it will help you some. I hope I can write it out so it make sense to you.


First I have a list of all my bills. Gas lights phone cell and so on. I put in my deposit then I list the bills

Hi and welcome to the board! I have been away for a week and am trying to play catch up! Firstly, congratulations on getting through a rough couple of years. The good news is you have done it and you are stronger for it!


As for you numbers, I think you have some very positive things going on. First of all, when I crunched your numbers, I noticed that you had a surplus of $455.00 at the end of the month not including your parttime job
