Hi all. I've been lurking, learning, and semi-stalking you all for months and thought maybe it was time for an introduction. This is my first time posting on this board, but I was quite active on the Getting Pregnant board and recognize a couple of you from over there (hello again!).
A bit about me: I'm 42, childless, married to a super-great guy. We LOVE to travel. We have a 7 year old female chocolate lab named Boomer, and two male cats, 9 and 6, named Gaius and Fergus.
Money matters related: we both work for the Canadian government and have excellent pensions (70% of our best five years' salary), plus DH is in the Army reserves and has a small pension there (he describes it as "a case a beer a month"). Being Canadian, we don't have to worry about health insurance or health savings. So, retirement savings aren't a concern for us, but I do want to be better at saving overall just to have a good cushion, and to allow us as much travel as possible. We own a home in the suburbs, we have one vehicle that is 8 months from being paid off. Our extravagances are travel and nice meals out.
I'm hoping to be more active on this board and to absorb some good money saving ideas. I'm happy to answer questions!
