I was hoping that the result would have been announced by now, since I am more than a little concerned that I'll lose my job between now and January when I'm planning on being back from leave. I carry the insurance and live in a country and state with no mandated paid maternity leave (my company will pay me, but clearly I need to work here for that to happen). Hub and I sat down over the weekend and did a budget (and then promptly blew it). I hate having this eat into my plans to pay down my mortgage and student loans.
I've been looking at a lot of personal finance blogs, but can't find one that works for my situation. I'm not willing to move into my parent's home or sell my cars to meet a goal of being debt free (honestly, I just want to gt rid of the loans because they are annoying and get some equity into the house so I can do-over my kitchen regardless of work outcome. The monthly payments are manageable and tax deductible interest.
Sooo, does anyone have some suggestions for blogs to read? I'm not interested in selling my belongings for cash, or making homemade laundry detergent to save money. Basically, I buy things for a reason and am lazy. We have read some Dave Ramsy and like the idea of paying off debt, saving 6 months expenses and for retirement/kids' school. Anyone see a blog of someone like me?
