    Default Hello from Iowa

    Hello there I am new found out about this group from a coupon group I am in. I am in desperate need of slowing down the outgo of money in our family. I had my hours cut at work and have lost between 200 and 300 dollars every paycheck which hurts really bad!

    Oh and I am mom to 3 mostly great kids a son who is 17 years old, my oldest DD is 15 and my baby she is 8. I also have a great husband that I have been married to for more than 20 years.

    Things are just really slow here for us and yet the bills aren't taking a break ughhh.... I hope I can find ways to cut spending and get some bills paid off and out of the loop of what we pay out every month.

    Welcome!
    i recently found a great tool on Oprah.com for looking at your budget. Click on the money tab on her site and you can find the calculators and worksheets.
    I'm sure you'll find lots of helpful info here at the village, I certainly have!

    Welcome to Frugal Village.
    I am also from Iowa. My DH and I recently moved away from Iowa City and now live closer to Des Moines.
