Hi everyone. I used to be really active on this thread many months ago.
I can't really do the Dave plan now because I am barely making ends meet as it is. I am trying to get a second job but so far haven't been able to find one that can accomodate my other job.
But I would still like to post in here for support, if I could
I am Jaime, recently left my husband. I live with my parents now. All of my bills are medical right now. I am as gazelle as you can get I can't tell you the last time I bought something fun. I even used my gift cards my students gave me at Christmas to pay for groceries
I will add in a list of my debts later, I have to round them all up.
Thanks for letting me participate
okay so we have finished working out our budget, with $ for all the sinking funds we would like. And we are currently planning to spend $1038 more than our income. So that's bad.
hmmmmm no wonder we're in debt! so now what? When I have a chance I will post our budget on here to be critiqued (or on another thread)....I'm thinking that we need to cut back on our sinking funds until we can free up money somewhere else...I will be back when we reconcile our budgets a bit more. yikes.
oh, in good news though, we now have our $1000 emergency fund so we can chop up our credit cards!
ktg - you should check out zennioptical.com. I just ordered two more pairs of glasses (a regular and a sunglasses) for around $25 total. I already have one pair from them and they are great. I would suggest measuring your current glasses to get the right size, but at 8-15 bucks piece, you really can't go wrong!
