TamarianG's Tale?

I’m hoping some of the older folks here, like me, saved Tara’s series of posts about becoming frugal. I like to re-read every now and then, when my motivation tank gets low.

And now I’ve lost it!!! I’ve searched everywhere and can’t find the saved version, or the paper one I printed out years ago.

And of course, all the old stuff that was so go on here is just gone.

Anybody able to help a girl out?

OMG - I remember TamarianG’s story - it was fantastic and so, so inspiring. Like you, I had it saved for the longest time.

If you do a Google search on her name, she maintained a WordPress blog for a long while.

Hope this helps.

Yes, I loved her blog, too! She just suddenly stopped writing - I hope all is well.

I’d give my left elbow (which is my favorite elbow, by the way) to have the old board back!

You ain’t the only one. However, I need both of my elbows for golf.

I agree. This place lost it’s mojo after this cumbersome change. I doubt it will ever really recover. Although I do enjoy the posts of most who have stuck around.

You forgot that reference.

I miss the old boards as well. A lot was lost when they went away.

Agreed. This was a decent place to share financial stuff before. Now it’s kind of a shell of it’s former self.

I can’t tell you how much I learned from TMF. At my first post-college job, a slightly older co-worker recommended it to me. I went from being $100k+ in the red (auto loans, credit cards, student loans) to a multi-millionaire in my 40s. I am eternally grateful for the help and guidance I received here. Kinda sad to see it trail off…

Sadly, this new format is just too clunky and difficult to find new topics as well as to go back to ongoing topics. It just ain’t user friendly so many of the users are gone.
