Ive been lurking for a bit...I wanted to jump in and thought I would start with a hello.
Nice to meet all of you.
Im Melody. I am married and living in sunny and expensive southern california for 6 more years until my son turns 18 (dont have the heart to take him from his dad). Then we are off to Texas. In the mean time we are going to save as much as we can whenever we can to build a little moving nest egg.
Ive cut our fixed costs in every way we can. We moved, got rid of my car loan and bought an old van. Its a gas guzzler, but work is only 2 miles away and thats about as far as it has to take me.
My hobbies are reading, sewing, crochet and yoga. I just had a baby and got all the baby stuff at garage sales and hand me downs. I made out like a bandit and had to actually sell some stuff on craigslist to avoid clutter.
I work at an office where I can bring the baby when he cant be home with daddy. I feel very lucky about this. Right now DH is using his GI Bill while going to school and he is looking into finding a night job. If he does this I might stay home and Ill be looking for something to make extra money at home. Both for cash and for sanity. :)
We have cut out all the extras so I am really looking for ways to cook things that taste good at home. Im not a bad cook...but restaurants still have me bested and that just seems really sad to me. LOL I always keep an eye open for cookbooks while garage saling.
Im excited about all of the tips Ill find here...thanks in advance!
