Happy New Year to everyone! Here's hoping that 2010 is a great one!


Let's start 2010 out w/a roll call. Please tell us your name & where you live plus anything else you'd like to share.


Kelly & family in the metro St. Louis, MO area. The *at home* family consists of dh, myself, 13ds, 11ds and sometimes 18ds (college student) plus 2 dogs. I also have 2 kids not living at home--23dd and 26ds.

Ok, it is time for me to come back out of the shadows. I was here last year, and lost my way with the birth of our new baby in April. Six weeks off of work, unpaid, some postpartum depression and a bailout loan from my mother, which consolidated all of our debt,

Welcome back, Janet! Sounds like you had a challenging 2009. I hope this board can help keep you on track in 2010!


Congratulations on the new baby! What a cutie!

Sarah and family (DH, DD 11, DS 8) living outside Baltimore, MD. I've been on this board for a while, although not nearly as visible recently as in the past.

Current challenges: DH lost his job 7 months ago and hasn't gotten so much as an interview in the intervening time. He's back in school, working on a network security certification, but in the meantime we're actually doing o.k. The great advice I got here in the past and the good frugal habits that have been a part of our lives for years now mean that we're able to manage on just my salary at least for some time yet (we had built up a very good emergency fund prior to his job loss, plus had paid off all debt except mortgage and student loans). I think we'll be secure through the spring, by which time I hope his extra coursework and improving economy will lead to more job opportunities.

I'm Jennifer, SAHM to 3 boys (14, 11, and 5). I've been on this board for years and resolve every year to be more frugal and save, save, save. I am still a work in progress unfortunately. Compared to some, I do great but compared to most of you I am "eh".... Looking forward to making progress this year.

Hi,

My name is Jessica. Married with one child. As of right now we are staying with my sister. We are planning on staying one to two years to get debt free. We pay her monthly, it's just cheaper to stay with her. :) So my 3 plus her 5 equals 8people. :)
Oh in northeast ga
