My name is Kelly. I am a 26 year old mother of a 6 year old son and a set of 6 month old boy/girl twins. DH and I are trying to buy our first home ... prices are outrageous but so is our rent, so we really need to get into something! Anyway, I am trying to buckle down so that we can make the home we would love to have affordable. Both DH and I work, and we recently paid off all our credit card debt (hurray!). We still have two car payments, though ... and the list of supplies for the kids is never ending!
Unfortunately, I LOVE shopping. I love to buy my kids the best of everything ... and too much of everything ... lol. I resell my kid's clothes on eBay, so I make a little money back on that, but I still need to cut back big time!
Also, I would like to buy some new things for our new home. We are still in the process of negotiating, but even if we don't buy this particular house we need to cut back. I am still spending like I have only one son, and the twins are very very expensive ... lol
I am going to post a seperate thread about a budget, but just wanted to introduce myself!
