excitedtobeamom, good job getting remotivated, debt free in a year sounds great!
Contrariety, you have been doing great! Now refill the ef. I think upping the ef is a good idea. I personally like 2000 in mine.
p1gg1e, good news about your dd's dental appt.
KailuaMamatoMaya, sounds like a great vacation. Sorry to hear you hurt your back. Dh and I are flying with our 7, 4 and 1 year olds mid-month and its the 4 year old who will be hardest to entertain. Have a good trip.
Let us know if you want help with your budget or need motivation.
Kaitnbugsmom, may it be a short trip back to bs1. Is your dh back to work?
Its good to have your dh on board.
claddaghmom, I'm sorry to hear about your Dad's business, its tough to watch. I'm glad its turning out to have a positive to get you moving. You are off to a good start with an ef and cash only already. Can you cashflow the school for this year if you pay minimums on your debt? You want to commit to no new debt if possible.
Denvergirlie, I moved you back to bs3. I hear ya on the sigh. bs3 is a tough one for me to maintain motivation.
major_mama11, good job using that found money for the car payment.
LilyGrace, good job on paying off the Target cc once you used it. Why does dh want to keep the card active?
RoadWorkAhead, great work paying off the car outright!
Pernillep, stop shopping! You can do this.
annethcz, every little bit does help. I set up a few small streams of money to go into savings so even in a bad month we get something put away.
akichan, I hope stbx comes through for you.
Softmama, can you do some of the deck work yourselves?
samandhenrysmom, wow flood insurance is expensive. Any chance calling different providers could get it for cheaper?
