    I just found your site and I LOVE IT! Over the past few weeks, I've been gearing up for a blog challenge called "The September Spending Freeze." No spending for the month of September in an attempt to get control of my spending and realize all the useless stuff I waste my money on. Several different blogs are participating in "the freeze" and one suggested I check out your site. I came over and instantly fell in love. I think its going to be great encouragement as I try this no spending thing. And I have a feeling it might even become a little addicting to do all this saving :)

    Reminds me of one of my favorite quotes:

    Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for- in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.

    Great job! I read about you in USAA. I come from a past of scarcity, but saving is still hard. It's a lot of ego that interferes with sensible thinking. Good job on your success and awesome of you to put this site together to inspire others.
