Anyway, I said only if she will...

  5. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    So yes, I'll admit it: I fell off of the wagon. I think I broke a few bones and severed my purse strings in the process, but overall, it's recoverable. I have good health care. ;) In the process of renovating the house, we fell pretty hard. We used up all of the money that we'd been paying...
