Penny-Pinching Is Fine, but It Won’t Save the Profligate
Here’s an interesting article from NYT
Is this matched savings plan program available in Maine?
Who can I contact about the matched savings plan program mentioned on April 15th program?
Here’s the website with links to information about the Individual Development Accounts (IDA), a matched-savings program that helps income-eligible Vermonters to save money to buy a home, pursue higher education, or capitalize a small business. http://dcf.vermont.gov/oeo/ida
My wife was laid off back in January of 2009 and until the last few months was she able to start finding some part-time work. While we’re excited to have her working again, and bringing in some extra money, it seems unlikely that she’ll land a job anytime soon making the same kind of money she once did. On the bright side, however, it has given my wife an opportunity to re-invent herself professionally and really take a close look at what makes her happy.
