Don't Buy Stuff You Can't Afford

Let's face it; times are tough for a lot of people right now. The past year has been especially difficult for our family in regard to finances: we switched to a single income home one year out of college, endured one long layoff, and were heartbroken by Emily's three month NICU hospitalization. Nevertheless, this year has been the best of my life--not only because we received the most amazing addition to our family--but because Eli and I had a few wake up calls and are learning to mature and make our lives more meaningful.

The next few entries of the blog will share my experiences of learning personal finance, oftentimes in the hard way. We still have much to learn and are hoping for some insight from our readers. Start by watching this hilarious 2 minute Saturday Night Live skit.
