    I should have my tmmo book today, I am so excited I feel like I am going to Burst! Andrew (boyfriend) said he would read it and he is backing me up on getting my baby emergency fund in place. I am extra excited because once we go over tmmo together things are going to pick up even more quickly...
  2. Home Environment
    Hi all - I am not great at keeping the house clean. I have a large house (3 bedroom, 2.5 baths, large rec room, large kitchen, living room, dining room) and am single, working full time. I have two cats and two bunnies to add to the mess. I recently started the daily to-do challenge, which has...
  3. General Chat
    I just got back home and my laptop came back over the weekend from repair. They replaced the hard drive but it did not fix the problem. They wanted to fix it again and I refused. I told them I wanted it replaced and that was the only option. They didnt even fix what they said was wrong the...
  4. General Chat
    I've been shopping everyday with a budget of 10 bucks for meals. I've stayed on budget so far and I still get to go shopping everyday. =) I also got 100 dollars out in cash so I don't mess with my debit card. :hat:
  5. General Chat
    I finally got a new laptop for Christmas. I have had it all of a few weeks and it has been acting crazy for about a week and a half. I thought maybe I might have been doing something to cause the problem but I really havent done anything on it but visit FV! Called Dell tech support and told...
  6. Stay at home moms
    Well I'm new to this site and I am trying to become a stay at home mom/wife. I'm looking for advice anyone may have. My husband and I work full time now and I have a 7 year old stepson. We have decided when we have another child I will stay at home. I am looking for all advice on how to make...
  7. Just Tips
    We have always had hp printers. They used to tell you when the ink was low. We have 2 hp printers and both went out within 4 days of each other and we weren't sure what was wrong. We found out and I wanted to let everyone know; the ink cartridges got low and were printing fine and then not...
  8. Scrapbooking & Paper Crafts
    I've recently resolved to spend at least one day each month scrapbooking. I find it restful, a creative outlet, as well as a mess-buster (memorabilia freak and/or packrat tendancies). Yesterday I went to a free scrapbooking event, brought lunch and munchies. I worked on graduation pages for a...
  9. Dave Ramsey
    I came across this forum while googling for money mangement forums, and was both impressed and inspired by the posts that I read. I don't really have any debt, I just don't have any money. I earn a fairly decent income and am single, so I have recently started thinking about saving money. My...
  10. Preparedness and Survival
    I am thinking about our many power outages over the winter, and how that could possibly get worse with all the budget cuts that have been happening around here. I know it doesn't directly affect the power lines, but with the work crews being downsized and the threat of ice and snow, it's just a...
  11. Envelope system
    I have been trying the envolope system and using just cash and it is not working at all! I end up spending money from different envolopes for the wrong thing, and then breaking a bill and having lots of change and putting it in my change jar but then not having much left in the envolope. I know...
  12. Relationships
    I just want to share that I just spent 2 hours watching (from a distance) my dh and dd#2 working together to change out a headlamp bulb on her car. Now know this, that the two of them cannot be in a room together with out trying to out do, out talk or out argue each other. :fence: When ever...
  13. Home Environment
    Do you have a problem area (or areas) in your home that you just can't use efficiently? Maybe a spot that was poorly thought out or awkwardly designed during the construction of your home - or a layout that just isn't working for you? Or did you have an awkward area and find a way to fix it or...
  14. Dave Ramsey
    and this month (Sept) we have paid off $1093.xx EXTRA down on our debts! Had to share, really motivated and excited...We can't do it -every- month like this, hubby works full time and is self employed part time, I am self employed part time and help do deliveries for hubby along with taking care...
  15. Home Decorating
    (moving, rehabbing, etc.) our kitchen - dining - laundry - pantry - mudroom to the way we want it to be ultimately. I got the baby rails up with the table linen on them and then the rug that I'd gotten got hung on the door. The next steps include: getting the smaller table from storage and...
  16. Family
    I have been mainly a stay at home mom for several years- I have worked earlier this year during tax season (had some issues juggling that). Now this year, on my kids first day of school, I start a new job. Now I will only be working until November 30th (my friends ice cream shop, they begged...
  17. Support
    I posted a few months ago on here about breaking up with my bf. I got back together with him because it seemed foolish to break up rather than work on things. I hid that post so bf can't read it when he is over here. I am not sure how to get it back again. Well, it is time to end the...
  18. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    DS16 started a 3 week internship. At the end of the internship he will begin his first year apprenticeship as electrician. He will be earning some money. We don't really know how much, but at least minimum wage. Which is $8.80, but we think it is about $10/hour. We aren't concerned with the...
  19. WOTHM
    So, as I notice those of you who are participating in this forum, I see that most of you are also fairly active in the village on a regular basis. When are you able to do so, meaning, when do you get a bit of time for yourself, to unwind, surf the net, read a book, etc? Do you make it a point...
