  2. baby sitting-how much to charge

    Well, I am toying with the idea of doing some childcare. I haven't done it since I was a teen and the fee was $2 an hour. If I was to drive to the parents house 5 days a week or keep the child at my home 5 days a week, what kind of price should I ask for? I am trying to save them on the price of daycare, but have no idea what to ask for. I realize if I go there it should be higher. Just wondering. I know some of you do this, and thought you could help me. thanks!

  4. just letting money fly out the open window

I went to figure out what to do, and realized the window was cracked open. It has been this way for probably 6 months. HOW MUCH HEAT DID I LOOSE DUE TO MY OVERSITE? Well, it is closed now!!!
  5. 2009 money beginnings

    Ok. Here it is.
    ***I saved some change form last year. My cange jar on Jan 1 is at 13.48.
    ***I have a little over 3200.00 in credit card debt
    ***I have 845.00 in savings.

    My goals are:
    ***credit card gone this year
    *** savings up to at least 4000.00 for a new roof.

    After these are done I will rethink more goals. I also will be doing small challenges to help meet the goals.
