Here I am, and here I go!

March 9th, 2007 at 11:59 pm

Hello everyone! I was surfing the web looking for blogs on how other military spouses and servicemembers save, and to be honest with you I couldn't find much in terms of PFB! I said to myself, "I want to read what other people are doing, but maybe other people would like to read what I'm doing as well."

So, we are currently saving 15% of our pre-tax income in the Thrift Savings Plan (the government's version of a 401k only no matching funds) and on top of that saving $1,000 a month for our dream of owning a home. We have about $10,000 saved thus far in that "home fund".

Now onto the bad...we have $4,000 in credit card debt. 3/4 of that is at 0% and the rest at 7.99%. Not horrible, but our logic might be a little odd in how we are going about all this. I'm not sure I understand why I do anything sometimes!

    Hi welcome. I'm an army wife too. We are full time army for the reserve side in Iowa. We just made our first move in October. Since there is no lodging for reservist, we have our own home. I'm not a blogger, but I do participate in the forums. I look forward to reading your posts.
