The Great PCS Book Giveaway #2

There was so much news yesterday that I skipped posting the book giveaway – I was afraid it would get lost in the payday excitement.

Today’s giveaway book is The Beardstown Ladies’ Guide to Smart Spending for Big Savings.

Today’s question is:  What is your biggest financial goal right now?  I’ll tell you mine:  getting through this move without tapping our emergency fund.

To enter, answer today’s question in the comments.  I’ll keep the contest open for five days and then I’ll use a random number generator to pick a winner.  Entries close at noon on Wednesday, June 2nd.

Don’t forget to enter the rest of the Great PCS Book Giveaway :  Day 1 and Day 3.

  • my biggest goal, as we are PCS’ing in 11 days, and facing down deployment with 12 months or so, is to pay off ALL credit card debt before my husband leaves. This means NO new spending…I have to give up on the new TV I want :(…but I want to be able to INVEST ALL OF HIS DEPLOYMENT PAY while he’s gone…

    It will be VERY hard as we drive from DC to WA not spending money on fun fun fun….but I have a GOAL :)

  • My biggest goal is to get rid of our consumer debt. I am working on credit cards, the car will be paid off soon, and then I’m going to start throwing more in our IRA’s and savings. Hubby will deploy within the next year, so I think we can easily do this before we leave our current duty station.

  • Sara G

    My goal is while living apart that we bring in the spending and do not add to new debt. I am going to work full time and use the majority of my pay to start paying us out of debt and restart our savings. So we are financial secure to start a family in a few years.

  • Kerrie Mayans

    My goal is to save 3 months worth of expenses in an emergency fund.

  • And the winner is…Suzanne B. I’ll be in touch shortly to get your address and mail you the prize.
