Reducing the clothing budget was a serious challenge for me. Two pre-teen girls and a teenage girl certainly didn?t make life any easier. My son wasn?t much of a challenge. Thank goodness, he?s not ?fashion conscious?.

More Money? My Cup Runneth Over...But Im Still Thirsty


Most of us, especially those of us who have debtor?s disease (if you have it you know what it is!), have commented or at least thought, ?If I could just win the lottery, or sweepstakes, everything would be better.?

If you?re like most people, your personal financial records are most probably kept in less than ?Good Accounting Practices? standards. For example, stashing old ATM receipts and hanging on to a stub showing what you paid for a pack of mints two years ago (cash, of course), might be filed with your paycheck stubs, credit card statements ? paid and unpaid alike ? as well as a few tax forms, a stray paper clip and a penny.
