Financial Check up

Time for a financial check-up!

1.) Re-build emergency fund. I say re-build because we had a small amount of savings but our refrigerator decided to go out on us today and we had to buy a new one. What a way to start off the new year! Not doing so great here. Something always seems to come up, new tires for Piggy's truck, new part for the stove, etc... We're trying!

2.) Have all debt except student loans paid off by December 2009. We're getting there, so far we have paid off roughly 72% of the debt!!


  1. That is awesome! Way to go!

  2. Dave Ramsey has helped us a ton! My husband and I followed him before we got married in 2004 and now I work casual at the hospital while being home most of the time with our 2 soon to be 3 (in 4 weeks) kids! (We have a lot in common).
    We paid off all of our debt except the house and it was great. People totally make fun of our frugalness sometimes. We've gotten a little sloppy lately though.
