 I could use some help with finances. I dont have money to hire anyone and would chat and give my bill info to anyone that can help me figure out how to save some money! We are planning to move home in 2 years and need A LOT of money. Any takers? Some one with yahoo messenger would be great :) I cant pay but I will be VERY greatful :)

I'm not sure I would be helpful. I do know that I got help from I think Airman and Family Readiness on base. They do have financial counselors and sometimes free financing classes.   here is a bump for you.

Well, I can't help you out with your finances, but I can tell you that the best advice I was ever given after graduating from college & landing my first job was to always pay myself first. So, ever since, before we pay any of our bills, I "pay" us first by transferring XX amount of dollars (the same every pay) into our savings account just as if it was another bill. If you can have the bank do it for you automatically, that's even better, because you can't miss what you never had to spend, kwim? Before you know it, you'll have enough to move.

Good luck!

 not trying to be a b*tch but just offering a word of advice be careful how much info you give people over the internet, it might seem cliche but don't give any acct. #s ss#s I wouldn't even use specifics just generic terms like lights or utilities cause the smallest insignificant piece could tell someone exactly what they need to steal ur Identity and cost you everything.

Do you bank with USAA? They have financial advisers for free.
