Good morning Barb,
Welcome to the group! My name is Stacey and we’ve set goals for 2008
to become debt free.Luckily,hubby & I have never had a credit card of
any kind so it’s NICE to not have to worry about that.Last nite I was
on one of my budgeting groups and saw someone was in $81,000 in CC card
alone.I about literally choked on my coffee.I couldn’t imagine that
kind of debt but anyways,we feel like this is the year to get on track
and save some $$$.We spent about an hour looking at savings account
online for retirement,emergency,etc… It was pretty fun knowing that
we’re getting our future in order.
Well, glad to have you here and hope to see you around!
