The dirty details

As I said in a previous post, I am 37 years old. I work full time at a kitchen design showroom as an executive assistant. I work for family. Which is good and bad.

I have been married for 13 years. My husband also works full time as a school custodian. Sadly, though, he works for benefits not really money.

We have a nearly 6 year old son who also isn't good with money. He wants everything, thinks nothing of money. When he gets a dollar or two, he leaves it around. He expects a toy or treat every time we go to the store. And sadly, although it isn't a credit card but a debit card, he sees me paying in plastic.

He is currently enrolled in a hip hop class and baseball. He doesn't understand that I can't also sign him up for Karate, basketball and football. It costs money! A lot of money!

So please, join me on my journey to get my spending under control, my bills paid off and some money it the bank.
