    Default Can't wait to meet some frugal-y friends! :)

    Hey everyone!

    My name is Winter. I am 33 and live in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I have been interested in becoming more frugal and smarter about money for awhile. Now I am about to switch careers, and with the switch take a paycut of almost $2 an hour. I guess it's time to really get busy on figuring out my money stuff!

    I am excited to get to know people here and to learn all of your fabulous tips and tricks.

    Anyone else from the Cedar Rapids area?

    I drove through Cedar Rapids a couple years ago. Does that count? Probably not. But we're right up the road from you in Minnesota. Okay, we're a LONG WAY up the road since we're practically in Canada's lap, but we're still neighbors.

    We're all loaded with tips and tricks, so just stick around and read a lot and make yourself comfy.

    Welcome!

    Welcome from Kansas.

    This is my favorite e-magazine. It publishes weekly on Mondays -- stretcher.com.

    By far the most life-changing book on money ever is -- Your money or your life by Joe Dominguez.

    Both are very much worth the time to read them.
