New to Blogging!

March 16th, 2008 at 01:32 pm


I have been a member of this site for almost a year, but have never set up a blog. I have posted on the forums for several months. I enjoy all the advice given at this site and am always open to suggestions regarding personal finance and frugality.

I currently have some credit card debt, a car loan, and student loans. Initially it was difficult for me to adjust my finances since being separated for years from my husband, and more recently being now divorced from him. He didn't contribute much to the household income due to health problems and other issues that prevented him from holding down a job consistently.

Since this life change I've now worked my way up to saving at least 25% of my income in various mutual funds, a Roth IRA, and savings accounts, on a regular basis each month.

So long for now, I will make another entry within a few days.
