About money

When my husband and I got married, money was not at the top of our head because all we thought about was that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. We are productive citizens of society, so we could probably earn enough money to support ourselves.

However, reality strikes soon enough. Everything in life requires money. Having your own home, having your own car, getting medical attention, giving birth, buying food to eat...the list goes on. We also learned that money management is not just about earning the money and spending it, because the reality is that sometimes you don't have enough money on hand to pay for what you need.

Credits cards came in very handy when our son needed to be hospitalized and we don't have enough cash on hand to cover the bills. Thank God for plastic!

Although we cannot afford it, we're trying to save up for our own home. Since we do not want to lose the place we are going to live in, we are also looking at home insurance quotes to protect our soon-to-be prized property.

Our ten year old car still runs well, and we don't have intentions of selling it yet. But we think paying for a car insurance would still be wise, because accidents do happen and not having insurance when an accident occurs is a going to be very expensive!

I like the site because it helps me in making good money decisions.
