    Someone in my house has a terrible smell coming from them. This morning when I got up I felt sick from the smell in the house. I spent the entire morning cleaning and looking for the source. When I picked this person up this afternoon it was clear the smell was coming from them. It smells...

    Hi. I'm new to this forum and to Dave Ramsey's system to find financial freedom. I hear so many people say that buying a house is a great investment and an asset. But, I'm not completely convinced. If the key to financial freedom is to have no debt... Why purchase a house that I can not afford...

    I'm always depressed when someone says they get along fine on $50/month or something. I need to look at this on a per person basis. I'm buying for 9 people. Probably the equivalent of 7 adults. I spend $165/week. That is also HBA. I'd like to get it down but it seems if I spend less we...
  13. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    For the last couple of years dh and I have been doing our finances/budget together. Before then one of us did them and played the 'boo-man' by saying what could and couldn't be bought/done. This wasn't working (lots of stress) so we pulled together and dh made a budget and we have been...
