I have been gone from the group for a while and didn't post much anyway. But I just answered the question "am I a spender or a saver." That leads me to ask you ladies for some advice. Last October my husband and I got a settlement from a car wreck. It was $17,000. Then in February we got taxes, together around $8,000. So technically we should have ALL $25,000 as we didn't need it for anything. We do just fine with what we earn. We decided in October to save that until we got our taxes and pay cash for a foreclosed home. Well, I spent a lot. We have $18,000. Way less than we expected. I know I spent about $1000 on Christmas, and bought the kids some clothes. Maybe another $500. I have no clue what I did with the rest of the money!!! But I do know I'm the one that doesn't it. :( My question for you ladies, is do you have any advice on how to stop spending? Or good websites or books I should read? At the rate I'm going, we'll never get a house!
