Last year, I won one of the giveaways from Preg.org. It was the Financial Peace bundle from Dave Ramsey. Missy J asked me awhile ago if I'd consider posting on this board at the beginning of the year. Well, things were a lot busy w/ 3 and a new baby at the beginning of the year so I'm just now coming around.
Just a little background about me. DH & I have 4 earth children & 1 babe in heaven. We are very thankful to not have debt except for our house and we're hoping to keep it that way and work towards paying off our house so that we can be totally debt-free. His job has to do w/ the automotive industry and there have been LOTS of cuts at his place of employment--a 5% cut across the board, people let go, further pay cuts & hours cut for some which equals further loss of wages, etc. His company is doing all that it can to stay above water and ride things through. Thankfully at this point, his position is such that he would probably be one of the last to be let go. However, we know there is not any guarantee that the company will be able to ride out these tough times and it's possible that he could end up losing his job or the company closing. We're sure hoping it's neither.
I'm looking for others to come on out and start posting. It doesn't matter where you are financially, it would be great to have you here. Whether you're needing encouragement, advice, want to celebrate achievements,
need to vent, have advice to give, I'd love to see it buzzing around here.
So please come join in!! I'm anticipating that it can be a great journey towards reaching our financial goals!!
