@Marissa This is awesome! Do you know where you are going?
@Conal Darcy@twitter That's what I do. It's so hard but so rewarding.
I don't particularly fond of Mint.com. I used You really need a budget when I started to get my finances in order and the envelope system. After that moved on to writing everything on a Google Drive spreadsheet to keep track of things and now I'm mostly on top of it. Not perfect but much better than before.
@Allison Whoa, stealing your idea. Brilliant.
@qwer1234 Hooray!!! I want more info on this Barclays account. Sounds awesome.
Sadly no. I had to charge some stuff and I wasn't able to pay it off. I still made the payment though. My new goal is to pay it off by March.
@lisaf After I became debt free, I've been tracking my savings on here. Seeing people pay off their cards inspires me to keep saving. We are all in this together.
