  • Blog Post: I Had No Idea That Was Out There....

    Do you know what resources are available in your Community? I am amazed at how many programs and resources there are in each of our communities whose sole focus is to help people in some way. Some feed or shelter those in need, some specifically help women, and some specifically help men; I think it...
  • Blog Post: Don’t Be Afraid Of the DMP

    ....Just understand it. If you do a simple Google search on "DMP," the list of articles and sites produced goes on and on, from definitions, to the companies that can help, to the companies that can't help. It is all there and it is all overwhelming! I was very scared and nervous two and...
  • Blog Post: Battling Procrastination During the Holidays

    Well, here we are. November already and Like it or not, the holiday season is upon us! I, for one, choose to like it. But it hasn't always been easy to enjoy what inevitably is a spendy season. One of my biggest challenges around this time of year is my tendency to procrastinate. My personal procrastination...
  • Blog Post: Legally Married...Now What?

    We all know that once you make the decision to marry someone you are tied to them for life (or at least that is the intention!). With this in mind, you know with all your heart that you truly love this person, but do you know everything there is to know about them.....financially? Romantic, right? Sure...
  • Blog Post: One down….Two to go (Weddings that is!)

    Those of you that have followed my posts know that this has been quite a year with regards to my wedding planning. We are (obviously) on a budget and were trying to do everything in our power to make things nice and easy. Well, as the title of my blog states, yes, I have ended up with 3 weddings! My...
  • Blog Post: City Girl meets Farmer's Market

    The other day a van parked on my street. Two men got out, and one of them called to me, "Hey! You need some steaks? How 'bout some nice ribs? Can't get 'em any cheaper than this!" I might mention here that the van in question was not a clearly marked van of a local butcher or anything...
  • Blog Post: Who has the time....or the money?

    I was recently invited to a "Memory Keeping Party." Not one to do the Pampered Chef, Tupperware, or Candle Parties, I pulled my friend aside and gently told her that although I would love to go, I was not in a position to purchase anything at this point and I was going to pass. "No, no...
  • Blog Post: Cash for Gold

    I was skeptical. I mean, put a bunch of jewelry in a bag, send it away, and get a check for it? It didn't seem quite right. It was a time when I was a little desperate for some cash, so I did it. I put in a few things that didn't mean much to me...that way if I lost out I wouldn't be too...
  • Blog Post: Goodbye Cable...

    Do you like TV? Yeah, me too. I love me some 30 Rock like nobody's business. So believe me when I say that I am not an uber-intellectual who decries HBO as the opiate of the masses. But brace yourself for something shocking... I don't have cable. That's right, it's been about four years...
  • Blog Post: Ready To Give Up on Becoming Debt Free?

    The thought has crossed my mind. I have been in my DMP for 2 full years now. There has been more than one time that I have thought about throwing in the towel. Usually it is because my monthly budget doesn't work, or I see something that I really want to purchase, but there is just no extra money...
  • Blog Post: Library Sales-Entertainment on a Budget

    Calling all bookworms, literati, and bibliophiles! If the preceding terms apply to you, then you share my affliction: a lifelong love of reading and an explosion of books, books everywhere. Or to be Seussical about it: Books that are whimsical, books that are blue, books in the pantry, and books in the...
  • Blog Post: How Did We Get Here?

    So here we are-in Debt Management. I'm two years into my Debt Management Plan and some days I still find myself thinking: "This is crazy! How, how, HOW did I get here?" We all have our stories though, right? I know for me it helps to read about other people's experiences, frustrations...
