  2. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I am the money manager in our household. And I have to face the fact that I have not done a good job lately at all. It would be easier to place blame, and claim that I CAN'T do a good job if DH won't cooperate and continues to spend money on his wants etc.. The plain truth is, I have lost...

    I think my electric bill will go down and we will go through much less toilet paper. Is it bad to get excited about these things?

    We paid off 2 more small bills. It was suppose to be 3 but the weed eater died. Our town has a $100 fee per day after notice if the grass is not cut. So I figured it was better to direct some of the money away from BS#2. I also got a call from a collection agency about a 3yo bill. It was...

  11. Question and Answer
    I came up with a wierd budgetary theory, and it's working really well! I call it rolling the snowball forward, or the 5th week theory.

While some might disagree with our priorities I have...

    Do you ever feel like you are beating your head against a wall? I don't know if it's just the up coming holidays or the economy let down or what, but I have been really depressed lately. It seems as if the more we pay towards our debt the more things come up that costs us money. For instance...
