Hi all - I found this site about a year ago and was financially inspired by reading the stories captured on different blogs. I felt like I found a tribe I could relate to - frugality, money-talk, awareness, bargains, humor!

I sat down and reviewed my finances in full for the first time. I figured out how much I earned per month, sketched out a budget detailing where I needed and wanted my money to go and started to pay more attention to my overall financial picture.

This was huge (it took many, many babysteps) because I've always been afraid to do this - my fiscal picture is actually quite decent, but I do live in fear of not having enough for the future. And I don't want this fear to stop me from living in the present, which it sometimes does.

I've recently started to lose track of my daily financial life, so decided to jump on the bandwagon and start a blog as a way to get back on track and to keep focused.

I look forward to blogging with you all!

    Welcome. Blogging like this - telling so much of yourself - is like jumping in cold river water. You watch other people playing, splashing around, but the water's cold. Just hop in all at once!

    Doesn't it feel better to know where you actually stand financially? I used to be in the dark and would get nervous when I say articles in the paper about savings money because I never knew if I was doing OK. Now I love those articles. Knowledge is power!
