  2. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Background: 12 yrs ago I put a trailer on my parents land. My dad has always been the financial guru in our family and he did most of the paperwork and etc. He got the trailer in his name so that the deposit for utilities would be less. My DS and I lived there for about 3yrs. DS and I then...

    I'm feeling guilty that our choices can't provided the same stuff as my parents choices did for me. Hubby and I chose to love a simple frugal life. I stay home and Hubby downsized his career (and salary) so he would be home nights and weekends. Lots of family time. The kids have someone to pick...

    We are friends with a couple I’ll call the Joneses. The Joneses are exactly what they sound like. They are the ones on the block with the latest cars, toys, and gizmos. Despite that, they are nice people and we’ve been friends for years. Each year we go on vacation together to a small resort in...

    Does this ever happen to you? We got this weeks paycheck, and on top of debt reduction, we had a bit to spare. We decided to buy a new cookware set. Our old ones were on their last legs. They were random pieces made from hand-me downs and garage sale finds. They were in such bad condition, it...

    You buy something for yourself? I will pick things up for my husband and kids and not think twice about it. But if I buy something as simple as a new pair of cheap shoes or higher end shampoo, I feel guilty. Why is that? I saw a cute little winter vest yesterday and I picked it up for my dd...

    Just curious.... I recently bought a portable dishwasher for my little basement apartment at mom's. I only have a utility sink down here, which is great when I want to clean up my extra large stock pot or my pan from my Rival roaster, but really wasn't so good for day to day dishes. I tried...

    I know times are tough right now, and everyone is having a hard time making ends meet. The only thing we do for entertainment is camp. BUT we have a new 29 ft self contained camper, that is as much as a car payment per month, and we pay $250 a month to keep the camper on site at the...

    Well first let me explain. We never had much money when my children were little, but just being blessed to be together seemed to be enough. I began watching kids, and started to be blessed upon with certain toys, that I have collected and used through the years. My children were always so happy...
  20. Question and Answer
    I am wondering if any of you have a moment of hesitation or guilt when you make a larger purchase, even if it is planned for? As some of you know, I have 2 wonderful grand daughters. When the first was on her way, I made up my mind that I would buy her a Barbie motorized car when she was old...
