@wendyleigh Fostering is the best. I fostered four cats before I was ready for my own (yay for fears of commitment!) and those experiences were honestly such a gift.

Your dad sounds exactly like my dad. He once had to explain to me that money doesn't live in the bank in neat piles in labelled boxes. This was like, last year. (Also, you're doing great.)
The buyers at Beacon's Closet destroyed my self-esteem forever. Also, does anyone else think it's fishy that they will "keep" whatever they don't buy to donate later? I think there's a story there...
@E$ YES IT IS.
@Mike McPhaden@facebook The Billfold commenters are notorious for being the most awesome. It's an incredible community.
@eliza It's such a thorny issue, isn't it? So much of what Zach was saying about functioning as a unit and actually becoming stronger as a couple through loosening the need for independence made sense to me, although I still can't imagine myself making that leap. Although it does seem that part of making a commitment to another person involves a degree of also committing to the idea that the whole is more important than the parts, if that makes sense?
I can’t recommend Zach enough!
Hi all - you're right, I could afford to save $25 a month. And I should, yes? That seems like a responsible thing to do. I think I might have been trying to convince myself I can't save anything - which, on a very paltry nonprofit salary, is almost true, but not quite. Tell me how YOU save! I'm genuinely eager to learn.
