First there is always hope. And welcome to the board.


Pennies here and there do count. Starting with the cell phone. Our is like 45.00 a month and it could be cheaper and will be when our contract runs out.. I would start with that. Use a lot of coupons when you shop Tonight my husband bought over 100.00 worth of food and only paid 87.00 for it.

Hi,


Have you shopped around for car insurance lately?

Do you pay just the minimums on your debt?

Love DR!

It's okay to jump...you have wings! 

To move forward...you have to stop looking back.
