It's just a free website with on-line applications for people to use for budgeting and things like that.
They don't offer personal financial advice, but they do have a library of articles.

Everyone:
It's a good idea to look at CNet.com to see what free applications they have for downloading.
CNet.com is a great place for safe downloads and information on all types of computer "things."
They even have their own "TV" programs -- hosted videos about computer updates and the latest innovations.
It's a good site to bookmark.

I've already had all the bad things thrown at me early in life, so now that those are out of the way, my future should be wonderful.

(CAPS FOR VI)

emoticon GOOD MORNING!

I'VE NEVER HEARD OF THIS WEB SITE. I HAVE BEEN HEARING/READING THAT COME OF THESE DEPT HELPERS ARE A RIP OFF. AND I DON'T SEE WHERE BANKRUPTCY REALLY HELPS IN THE LONG RUN. ONE OF MY FRIENDS KIDS WENT BANKRUPT LAST YEAR & IS ALREADY BACK IN ABOVE THEIR HEADS. ONLY THIS TIME THEY'VE DRUG MY FRIEND IN OVER HER HEAD BY HER "HELPING" THEM OUT SO MUCH. (COURSE THE D-I-L'S HABIT OF BUYING COACH PURSES HASN'T HELPED!) SHE TELLS ME EVERYDAY HOW SHE DOESN'T KNOW WHAT THEY'LL DO. I TOLD HER THAT I'D LEARNED THE HARD WAY THAT YOU CAN'T HELP SOMEONE WHO WON'T HELP THEIR SELVES! AND, YES, I'VE BEEN TOLD I'M COLD BUT I GOT US IN OVER OUR HEADS BY "HELPING" MY MOTHER /DAUGHTER. THEY KEPT SAYING THEY'D PAY ME BACK BUT NEVER DID SO I TOLD THEM I COULDN'T "HELP" ANY MORE. SURE THEY GOT MAD BUT SO DID DH (STEP-DAD). AND YOU KNOW WHAT? THEY MADE IT ALRIGHT WITHOUT ME. IN FACT, THEY DO BETTER THAN I DO! MY MOTHER JUST NEVER UNDERSTOOD (SHE'S GONE NOW) WHY I WANTED TO LIVE THE SIMPLE LIFE & DO "WITHOUT". BUT REALLY, WHEN IT COMES RIGHT DOWN TO IT I JUST DON'T NEED ALL THE THINGS I MIGHT "WANT". MY GRANDMOTHER USED TO SAY YOU'D REACH A POINT IN LIFE WHERE YOU DON'T OWN THINGS - THEY OWN YOU. I NOT KNOW WHAT SHE MEANT. SO I'M DE-CLUTTERING & GIVING MOST TO SOMEONE ELSE WHO CAN USE IT. FUNNY THING IS I DON'T MISS A THING! emoticon

LearnVest is free.
www.learnvest.com/
It has free budgeting tools, some of which seem to be worthwhile (I just took a quick look at them last week or so).
I signed up for the e-mail articles, too, but I think they're too basic for most of the people on this team -- the ones I've gotten so far seem to be for people who have never given a thought to budgeting their money.

I have a subscription to LearnVest - it's free... I don't use it for budgeting, but I do get a daily article.
