Hi. My name is Cassandra and I'm a married mother of 3 sons. I've been unemployeed since May, but that should be changing in a couple of weeks once my background checks and drug screening is done, but it will only be part-time. At this point, I'm just happy I finally found a job. I look forward to getting to know others in the group, learn some things, and maybe even sharing some things I know.

 Hi! I'm Beckie. I'm married and we're raising 3 of our grandchildren. I'm always on the lookout to save money. Kids are soooo much more expensive the 2nd time around it seems. Plus we really want to be able to retire someday. Right now the plan is for when the youngest graduates from High School.

 Hi Cassandra! It's nice to meet you. It is good that you found something, and maybe now that you have that job, you'll be able to find either another part-time job to do with that, or a full-time one down the line. :) How old are your sons? I have 2 girls, 13 and 14. :)

 Welcome to the group! Have you seen that 52-week savings challenge that's floating around on the web? It could be a good way to kickstart your savings?

 I have seen it. It does look like something I could do.  I have one more trip to make, my son is graduating from basic training in February.  I spent more on my oldest visiting for the holidays so having to save two big amounts in January and begining of Febrary to be able to go.  I had unexpected car repairs that needed to be done.  :(  So back to the drawing board.  Are you going to be doing this savings also?

My sons are 22, 17, 10 years old. Yes. I hoping things will get better once get to start working. I was told that in time, my part-time position and turn into full-time once I get trained in other areas. So, I'm hoping that will happen. Baby steps. I'm taking it all in baby steps. :-)
