I should've posted this the other day when I got the message that I won Tamara's give away. Dave Ramsey is my favorite for learning about financial info. So, I am excited that my kids are going to learn from him also. My hope one day is to be debt free, home included. I would love to pay cash for everything. We have a long way to go but we are on the right track. My husband and I are on the same page for a change. Right now we are not eating out at restaurants, and skipping the coffee shops. I am staying home more to cut down on gas, plus whenever I go out for some reason the money just jumps out of my purse;)
One of the ways I save is by going to the library. I have been taking a trip to the library once a week for so many years it seems like a natural thing to do. While we are there we get our movie night movies, music cd's, magazines, books for the week, books on cd,the kids do puzzles while they are there. At our library in our old town you could check out computer games but not at this one. Most of the time we have put books on hold using their website, so all we have to do is just pick the holds up. I honestly don't know why more people don't use the library. It's a great resource and all free(as long as you return the stuff on time). Our library isn't the best one, but if you need a book that they don't have they can order it through inner-library loan. Going to the library is my kids favorite thing to do during the week.
