Have you seen HSH.com's analysis of how much you need to earn to buy a house in different metro areas.  My local area, San Francisco is dubbed "the king of inaffordability."  Congratulations to us!  How does your area compare?  Do you feel it's affordable?

What was your experience with maternity / parental leave?  If you were giving a friend advice how much would you tell them to save?

Any other unexpected things they should know about that you learned the hard way or were surprised by?

Get Rich Slowly has been helping people get out of debt and achieve their personal financial goals for almost 10 years now.
