    Hi there everyone, Thanks in advance for your time and help. I really appreciate all of it. I followed a path in which some of my decisions could have been made very differently. However, when it comes to matters of the heart and a series of incredibly dark depressions, you're bound to make...

  5. 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...

She is there on a full scholarship, but she may lose the scholarship next year, because of financial problems with the scholarship program our state has, they announced they will only be able to continue the highest...

    I know that a college education is important and I fully intend for my dd to attend a 4 year college and earn her BA, however, I don't feel it's right for my ds. My dd works hard and has lofty goals but my ds is just adrift. I don't think he would do well in school. So, my question is not if...

  12. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Hey everyone, I was wondering if I could get some advice as to my budget plans for my future. I'd appreciate pretty much anything you can share with me, both negative and positive, as I'm still young and not as experienced.

    I'm just wondering if its as bad in your area as it is here to try and find a summer job. My dd has 1 more semester of college and desperately needs a summer job to help pay expenses. With gas prices so high she will have to find something local because she can't afford on minimum wage to drive...

  20. Find Your Kith
    I'm a college student in my junior year of undergraduate. I have at least 5 more years to go to finish out my graduate degree, and I know that most of that time is going to be spent scraping by financially, are there any other college students who are finding clever ways to make ends meet?
