    We’re on a long-distance pay down ourselves. We tend to celebrate each time we get down under any thousand. (IE, we’re under $7,000!)

    We don’t really celebrate as in going out for a treat. But it’s something I may consider doing.

    I’m constantly adjusting our budget to reflect reality. It’s exhausting at times, but I am slowly learning that there are just weeks when we’re both sick and tired and will go over our “eating out” budget by ordering pizza.

    Beks, what software do you use to manage your finances? I use wesabe to aggregate all of my accounts and it makes it very easy to see at a glance where I am at on my monthly budget and how all my disparate accounts are faring.

    I think it is easy to get side tracked with money but the important thing is to list all of your expenses so the things that you always have to pay are always covered. Always think before you buy anything this prevents whim purchases. I think this is important, I regularly review my finances and if I think we are going over budget I will work harder to make money online fast so that we don’t get ourselves into trouble

    Wow, my wife and I feel that we are in the smae boat!! My wife majes a good living sellling insurance and I am a teacher (out-of-work) for the summer taking care of our son. Living on one salary and one that is commission only is the worst thing that anyone can do!!! Thank G-d for my in-laws who live nearby. Without them we would probalby starve!!!

So, what do you think ?
