I've been lurking around these blogs since the first of the year, and I'm finally ready to dive in. First, let me say that I've really enjoyed reading about all of your personal finance journeys -- and I've picked up some tips!

I hope to primarily use this blog as a means for staying on track with my savings goals. My husband recently got a new job (hard in this current economic climate, I know) which will substantially increase our income in the next few months. His new job is much more permanent than his old job was, and so we finally feel comfortable enough to put down some roots in our current community. Which means -- we are starting to think seriously (rather than dream) about buying a house.

As a result, I really want to ramp up our savings and see how much we can sock away every month. Given housing prices where we live, we will need a substantial down payment before we can even think about making an offer. Not that that stops us from looking and dreaming!

So I'll see y'all around. I'm looking forward to commenting on your blogs instead of silently lurking Smile
