I know it’s been radio silence over here for the last few weeks.  We had a house fire and so we’ve been in survival mode.  We still have lots of recovery to do, so in the mean time, here are some great budgeting methods to check out.  If you are trying to figure out how to budget, or have tried to budget in the past without success, this post has the information you need to find a budget that sticks!  Thanks for your patience!  Hopefully I’ll get back to my regular posting schedule soon!
