  • Hi:
    First, this is my first comment on a blog and I really enjoy reading yours.
    Just a question. Do you keep your funds in bank accounts, high-interest accounts, or just in envelopes at home?
    I am trying to get out of debt in this year, and I need to get some ideas.
    Do you think that is OK to build an emergency fund while paying debt or paying debt first and then build your emergency fund?


  • Haha, I second Jolie – gosh that is a super cheap eye exam! My last one was $60 and I’m looking at $100 for next one. Darn.

  • SO WEIRD — my paycheck is for the *exact same amount* (down to the pennies!)

    Do you not pay rent? (Sorry, I’m still new to your site & haven’t read all the archives! I’m loving your site though — and getting so inspired!!)
