I found the forums by reading the comments on a piece on stuff.co.nz. I was pregnant, had at the time, low levels of spending, but didn't know what I should do with my money to help it grow. Something to do with shares/money came up, and I was reading the comments, when I saw someone mention ERE and MMM.
Never got into ERE, but was very hooked on MMM!
Downside, I do get anxiety over spending money now, but at least we haven't frittered it all away.
