Frugal, food growing mama to my four loves
Seriously. I read threads about budgets and payments and I just want to commend all of you who have learned how to stretch a dollar and squeeze a penny.
I was a late starter getting married and having kids, so I was never responsible for someone else until I was in my 30's. I was always responsible WITH my money, have always been a saver, but nobody every depended on me. I come here because I ENJOY being frugal and because it's also "finances" and investing is a hobby of mine. I hope I've helped some, but I've learned as well.
All of you women (and man... there's only one guy I know that hangs out here )... I just wanted to give you a huge pat on the back for working through your financial issues, learning how to correct mistakes, and making it WORK for your families in spite of so many obstacles. For persevering and picking each other up on these boards when someone gets down.
(That's all... just thought it would be nice to give credit where credit is due... um, but don't use that credit, it could get you into more debt! )
