    Why did you join us?..to save, to budget, to share, etc: All of the above? Haha!

    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm 26 years old and have spent the last year and a half as a SAHM to my sweet baby girl. I have my teaching degree, and am just now getting started subbing at our local schools; I also recently began selling Premier Designs jewelry. With my not working in the past year and a half, we're starting to feel the money crunch, and so I'm here looking for tips and tricks on how to save, and budget. Sometime in the next year DH and I are hoping to add to our family, but we're not quite ready yet! I love being a momma, and in the future I want to write and illustrate children's books

    Which Board did you find us from?: July/August 2010

    Why did you join us?..to save, to budget, to share, etc: To save money and be held accountable for my monthly budget. My husband and I are working our way through Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace. It's been tough, but we're starting to see some progress and it feels amazing!

    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm 28 years old, and I'm a 5th grade school teacher. I want to be able to provide my children with opportunties that I've never had, so we're working hard to get rid of our debt. It'll be a long road, but I'm excited for what the future will hold if we can do it!

    Which Board did you find us from?: ummm, I can't remember WOW, guess I'm tired!

    Why did you join us?..to save, to budget, to share, etc: to save money

    Tell us a little about yourself: I live in the northeast US, love ice cream and can no longer imagine life without my kids! DH and I went to dinner tonight, just us for 2 hours and although it was nice to have a break, I really missed my babies while I was out! crazy right?! I want a large family and will need to stay home and not work once we have another child, so we are trying to get our debt down to be able to do that. My life is quite hectic and Preg.org keeps me saner!

    Name: Beth
    DH:
    Kids: DSS (17) and DS (16 mo)
    Pets: 3 big mutts, 2 cats, 1 bird, 1 guinea pig, and a snake
    Which Board did you find us from?: Can't remember, but I frequent the following: TTC, DYSAL, and IVF

    Why did you join us?..to save, to budget, to share, etc: All of the above. When I was first living on my own and had very little money I was MUCH better at budgeting and saving.

    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm a biologist. I currently work as a college science instructor and love my job. My DH is a SAHD. We're constantly working on updating our 1890 house. It needed serious work when we moved in two and a half years ago. It still needs a lot more and we're living in a constant state of destruction/construction. Out of necessity we've learned more about plumbing, electrical, and general construction than we ever wanted to know. Fortunately, I used to work with one of the top "green building" experts in the state and he's always willing to stop by and give us directions for no charge. He's AWESOME.

    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm an air force wife and a SAHM. We just moved last weekend. I keep reminding myself that despite all the stress and mess this move has turned into that it was worth it since we'll make money from this (we're just here for 3 months).

    Which Board did you find us from?: Sept 2011

    Why did you join us?..to save, to budget, to share, etc: Get back on track with budgeting. I used to keep track of everything and then I had kids We make enough that I kind of just let things go on autopilot. Certain costs are fixed but I'm noticing some things are creeping up and I'm not longer sure how much flex money we have.

    Tell us a little about yourself: DH and I are both 35 and have been together since we were 18. We moved from Western Canada to the Boston area in June. At that point, I left my job (in genetics) and am being a SAHM for the year. DH makes the same amount as before the move but the cost of living is higher here. I am on maternity leave (almost 50% of my salary) for the year and once childcare is taken into the equation my take home pay once I start working will either be the same or less than I currently make. Certain things we are very frugal on and other things we are not. My main concern is being aware of what we are spending and if it is worth what we are paying
