Hello! I'm a 24 year old first time mom stationed in San Diego in the Navy. My husband got out in 2012 to go to school full time and may possibly get back in after he gets his degree. We've been married for 3 years and have a super happy 8 month old son. I was born and raised in Houston, Texas and my husband was born and raised in Columbus, Georgia. We met while stationed in Hawaii in 2009 and have been together ever since. I was stationed in Hawaii for 3 & a half years and got transferred to San Diego, CA in October 2012. The pay from Hawaii to California was a very steep drop, yet the Cost of living is almost the same so our finances aren't doing too hot (which is why I'm here lol). I can't wait to find out different ways of saving money on this site!
