  3. Stay at home moms
    Yes I am a stay-at-home mother to a 3 month old baby. Before we had the baby, we prepared the nursery room. We filled the dresser with clothes and also the crib has lots of pillows so the baby can sleep well during the night. But still I felt that these furnitures are not enough for the baby. We...

    I should have my tmmo book today, I am so excited I feel like I am going to Burst! Andrew (boyfriend) said he would read it and he is backing me up on getting my baby emergency fund in place. I am extra excited because once we go over tmmo together things are going to pick up even more quickly...

    All of my regular bills are up to date, I very rarely ever get behind on hydro,phone,etc.... I figure what I will do for now is take any extra hours of pay from the dollar store (I am only a casual worker there) and put all of that towards my baby emergency fund. All money from my hairdressing...

  11. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I have an idea but I want to get some opinions before I commit to it. We have our son's first birthday coming up in the beginning of February. He's the only grandchild on both sides (as of now) and he got spoiled on Christmas and has more toys than he needs. Our gift to him is we are...

    Scroll back to 1995. I acquired a baby cockatiel, when a friend of the family, who also bred tiels (and has since retired, to my relief) told my aunt that she had a tiel I could have. I went to go visit, and the breeder tosses a little grey baby hen at me, and I realized that the bird...
