Hi all,

I have been reading several of the boards daily for my three month trial and can't tell you how invaluable I find this 'place.' I immediately budgeted my fee to join (using my cash back debit/credit card)once I realized the resource that I had found, and here I am. I am a newbie to trying to get my finances under control, and can't tell you how much all the advice, comments, and suggestions have helped me already. I have celebrated silently with all those 'dancers' out there that have already obtained some or all of their goals. I commend anyone who can make a positive and rewarding change in their life and am grateful for their ability to share their experience.

I have a horror story of a past financial life! I can honestly say that it would give nightmares to anyone (including myself to this day) and I have a slightly deep credit card hole that I am currently digging myself out of right now. Progress is mighty slow, but rewarding just the same. I look forward to one day being able to do the 'happy dance' myself, and am looking foward to sharing my future dances and past experiences with others.

Welcome! (btw...love the nick!)

I understand your reluctance in posting your story, as I was there myself last February. Once I got it all down on paper, and decided on a plan of action, I took a deep breath and posted it.

No one gasped or fainted dead away :) In fact, I got a few cheers, and a few "you go, girl"s. My progress is slow, too. But I read this board every day, and dance right along with the others. And my $38,000+ debt will have been reduced $4,500 September 15th. Like I said..slow progress, but I know I could not have done it without reading other's stories and sharing in their dances.

You give, as well as you get, when you share your ups and downs. I hope you'll share yours when you are ready!

Once again, welcome to the board.

Warmly,
Perls

Hi. Welcome to the boards.
Congrats on spending so much time reading them. It is a committment, but believe me it really helps to go back and read the old posts. And try to read the boards daily.
I moved this year and didn't have a computer for a few weeks, I was like 900 posts behind.(I would stop at radio shack and log on to get some read!) Some days there are only 50 or so, somedays over a hundred. It doesn't take long to get really really behind.
Besides the motivation of reading daily, helps to save those pennies, nickles and dimes.
back on track,
trybjkt

Welcome to the boards! And more importantly to a new way of life. The paying off time (years?) is not so fun but it is a beautiful day when your money starts working for you instead of the other way around.

You'll get there!
