  9. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    We are building beyond the baby EF. I'm doing all I can to beef it up. Is there a formula that would help determine what the right amount for it would be? I'd love a goal to work toward. Since we're really leaning to refinance to be rid of all the payments, and just a mortgage, that frees up a...

    I just posted that she wanted to be a good friend with me, well she called him today. DH told me she had just called, and he was civil to her, but that was it. He said I didn't need to worry. I am a little upset by this phone call.
  11. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    I was discussing our recent Gun Control debates with DH this afternoon. I made the off hand comment to him that if I ever thought someone was out to harm our children that I wouldn't hesitate for one second to put 10 bullets in someone's head. (I apologize if that was too graphic). DH sat...

  16. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I have been trying to reduce my bills and I finally got up the nerve to call my current credit card company and ask them to reduce my APR on my card. They are sending me a form to fill out and then I will send it back and it will be reviewed and a new, lower APR will be assigned. It's based on a...

    I recently read an article called "Money lies that Cost You Big." This author failed to mention one of the big ones. That is the one that says, "Convenience and quality come at a price." What we consider a necessary convenience is all too often a matter of "popular culture." It may have begun as...
