With second hand and limiting the clothes, you don't need a full closet for just a few months, so it doesn't have to be so expensive. I wouldn't be comfortable with less than a year of expected baby expenses I think.

That looks much better than the bare legs. I just made real curtains which was pretty easy since I found some wood looking rings you just have to cut a hole in the fabric and press to install. I made the mistake of not thinking about the holes should go and had to go buy some more rings for the corners but it doesn't look too bad either!

I just got a car in Miami! Wanted a Toyota but they were expensive so I got a Huyndai Tucson. It was at an auction so pretty fun too.

I wouldn't, except to my sister because I know she would pay back. Other members I don't care if they would or not but you still have to see them around, whereas if you lend money to a friend and he doesn't pay, like Isabel Allende said "it was money well spent if you never see them again".

Lending money to friends is tough. You have to do it like you guys and expect the money to never come back. I would only do it for a handful of people, and family.

I worked a ton of jobs in college so I learned that money was hard to earn, and not to be picky with jobs. I also learned that if you are ready to work, there is always a minimum wage job waiting for you. As a result I am not too worried about finances as I know I can always get a job.

I love the relaxed pace, but for me the hardest part is getting organized and getting things done without someone telling me what to do and when.

I am on my way to Orlando to buy a car :). Going with a dealer friend at dealer auctions so prices could be good. I want reliable brands and well known models so it is easy to find parts anywhere. A cheap price for a brand nobody knows how to fix means problem.

I'd like a dog but I need a puppy as I think an adult dog would "play" with my chickens and kill them. Getting them neutered is free in Guatemala as several charities want to reduce the number of street dogs.

I had never heard women fared better with investing but for the reasons you mentionned that makes sense. I do quite a bit of research, although I almost never listen to anyone, or at least I am hard to convince and always feel like I am the one making the decision in the end.

I think when people make decisions to save or diet in the new year they want to lose weight or have a big amount saved early. While that plan is great it can get depressing after a few weeks. And the reverse you suggest is good, but like starving, it can be too drastic for beginners to then keep with it. Still it is a good way to get started.

We have a cold wave too, which means 60 degrees and everyone is wearing several sweaters and layers. It is pretty funny but when temperatures are generally in the 90s you do get cold when it is 60. Thanks for the mention!

Nice list! I just applied for a higher interest savings account as my rate was pretty low, it takes a minute online so it's worth it.

You are really brave! There is no way I would do it. Our lake is in the high 70s this time of year and it already feels chilly... Congratulations on doing it, and wanting to do it AGAIN.

That is neat! I use the editorial calendar plugin in WP at the moment, I like that you can just move the post and it will reschedule automatically for that day.

I want to keep running three times a week like I did last year. It was a bit of a setback after traveling messed up with my routine, but getting back on the horse is easier when you don't blame yourself and give up altogether.

That is pretty cool for such a low spending requirement. We are going to Belize for year end but not on free miles unfortunately...

I just bought a new one but kind of hate it and win8 is a pain too... I think I'll sell it and switch to ultrabooks, the super slim ones with solid state hard drives and 8 hour battery life.
I has an old netbook which was awesome, and bought it a new battery to last another 2 years, sometimes a small replacement or upgrade of RAM will give the laptop extra life.

At the moment I have had to fix the heater and some minor updates in the bathroom for my rental. I read you should budget about 1% of the cost of your home, thankfully I am still under that figure so far.
