  1. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    DH starts work Monday! He absolutely loves the place and I'm so thankful because with me being in school and him being out of work since the end of February, I think we were both at the end of our ropes. We're also still waiting for Canada Revenue to process the Disability Child Tax Benefit...
