Financial Pickles

Snapshots In My Time...
Of My Time.....Hauntings.

Many, many years ago when I was very young and in my first year of college, I got my very first checking account and a cedit card. In my family money matters were always a secret. Why? I could never understand. We were the average middle class family who lived in the suburbs. So, I do not to this day understand why my mother acted like we were people with so much money that it was a secret and we could not talk about it. If I tried to bring things up about money and finances, I was told that it was none of my business. You can imagine what I learned about money and how to manage it....Absolutely NOTHING from my parents. So starting out I had lots of problems, floundering and trying to figure it all out. Balancing a checkbook and having enough money to pay the credit card was some mystical mystery that I could never figure out. It was very frustrating.

I remember that first year, when there was no more money in my account and things were bouncing, I went to my father for Credit card debt help and figuring out how to really balance my checkbook. I was never sure what was in the account. He finally sat down with me and showed me how to balance it. Once. Soon after that I forgot to write 2 checks down, they bounced and I was in the same mess again. I got behind in those card payments and at a very young age my credit was not so good. I eventually got things in line. I did a hand written budget and wrote down every penny that I spent.

This of course was way before Al Gore discovered the internet so there was no on line help like that at I looked over the site and it is the place to start if you are overwhelmed by your current or even past financial pickle.
