Don't panic! I am not hanging my pantaloons out there for public viewing.


I'm going to toss all the facts and figures out there in hopes someone comes along and pops me on the head to keep us on track.

The BIG PICTURE is $48,000.00 cash... not total assets, not potential assets... roll around on the bed CASH

Monthly Bills (some fixed, some we pay extra on)

Health Insurance - $345
Cell Phone - $140
Internet - $60
Electric - $60
Car Loan - $400 ($275/mo - p/o/d 8/12)
Can Ins - $70
Car Ins - $150
Gas - $160
Groceries/HBA - $400
Laundry - $20
Old Man - $120
Diva - $25 (School lunches)
Misc. - $50

$2000 a month???? It doesn't seem like we pay that much but numbers don't lie.

Short-term goals:
BEF - $1000/$1000 DONE
2010 Vacation - $195.7/$600
3MEF - $0/$6000

Place your bets... place your bets... will Vee and Old Man reach their goal before they reach their maker???

    since you're in MA, I'll suggest this. DCU (our credit union) just sent us an ad telling us they can beat our current car insurance payment. One of my jobs this week is to verify if this is true. If it is, it's likely we'll switch to DCU's car insurance after years with our current company.

    I don't know if you've recently compared $$$ for auto insurance, but it's an idea. I know a couple in Boston who gave up their car altogether, they rent when they have to and use public transporation otherwise. I don't know if either of these is useful to you, but throw it out there in case it can help.

    Good luck!
