Have you ever done anything, ever, with your finances? Paid taxes, checked on your credit/credit score, bought a house? Then you might be affected by the Equifax data breach! You’ve probably already heard of the Equifax data breach, but here’s a quick summary. Equifax is one of three major credit bureaus, and over this past year, it lost control of customer data including Social Security numbers, home addresses, credit card numbers, ...

Is it really wrong to live paycheck to paycheck? This is a crazy question, isn’t it? Of course living paycheck to paycheck is a bad idea! When people say “I live paycheck to paycheck”, most people immediately flash to someone who has no savings, no retirement, and no emergency fund. In the worst cases, we might even think of someone who spends frivolously with no care about her future. But that’s not ...

Have you heard about accountability partners, either for workout/health goals, financial goals, or entrepreneurship goals? A lot of people search for accountability partners who are interested in the same things as they are: your sister-in-law, for example, for your “running buddy” accountability partner to make sure you finish that marathon. Some accountability partners are free, and others you pay for – in which case, they’re not really a partner so much ...

When I first decided I was going to work from home and become self-employed, my Mom was mostly worried about health insurance coverage. I’ve never been a sickly person, but my Mom is a Type A worrier (love you, Mom!) and thinks “worst case scenario” about me all the time. Surprisingly, she wasn’t worried I would “make it”, in terms of being able to pay the bills (which I guess means ...

It’s that wonderful time again – time to review the latest Sephora Play Box! This month, Play Box subscribers received some pretty neat things. The theme was “Glamp Out!” and everyone received a mask in their Play Boxes. I don’t really equate camping and wearing a face mask… seems like bugs or smoke from your fire would get stuck to your face mask, thereby negating all the positive effects of a ...

I’ve never really been a fan of cable companies. Ever since I was a kid, I heard my parents complaining how the cable and internet bill would go up every few months, how the company was notoriously unresponsive, and how “we pay for cable but still have commercials!” So when I graduated college and lived in an apartment with a bunch of roommates, it made sense we all opted to pool ...

Have you ever looked at the biggest, most successful bloggers out there and thought, “yeah, I should blog! I’m going to make a ton of money!” Well, I’m about to make you very sad. The truth is, a lot of people don’t make money blogging. So how do they leave their jobs and make it as freelancers? Usually, they do what I do: work other side gigs until their blog takes ...

Did you know that eating vegetarian meals can save $750 a year? The study, which you can read more about here, followed a full, year-long vegetarian meal plan, but many of us wouldn’t be able to live vegetarian 365 days a year. I know my husband certainly would miss bacon after a while! That said, wouldn’t saving a few hundred dollars a year by going meatless most or some days out ...
