Happy 2018! Did you have a fantastic New Year’s Eve celebration' Please tell me all about it in the comments, because mine was… so-so! B is down with the sickness that seems to be affecting everybody, which means I’ve spent the last few days with a Clorox wipe in one hand and hand sanitizer in the other! On the other hand, I did catch Mariah Carey and Britney Spears’ performances, and they ...

It’s almost the end of 2017 – can you believe it' I am not saying this to be mean to those of you living in snow, but it is 77 degrees here today in Phoenix. I know I shouldn’t complain but… I’m kind of hot. I really love a white Christmas/New Year’s Eve! (okay, okay, you can stop throwing things at me now! Mail me a snowball! :))  Okay, but ...

With all the talk around here about parties (bridal shower, engagement shower, bachelorette parties'! Oh my!), I started thinking about all the times my college friends and I would throw each other surprise parties. We were obsessed with throwing each other parties. Not your birthday' Don’t care! You’re getting a party anyway (don’t worry, we all liked surprise parties).  Being college students, though, we didn’t have a lot of money. ...

On Tuesday, I told you how I was able to save $645 this month, even after finishing most of my holiday shopping. Nothing has changed about my monetary situation – I’ve been following my regular budget. While it fluctuates, saving $600 isn’t impossible for me – minus those pesky dishwashers, flooded floors… 😉 However, you’ll notice I also mentioned how this time last year, I spent like crazy and actually ...

Do you have one of those effortlessly cool friends, the one who’s really good at decorating her home/apartment, takes unique, off-the-beaten-path trips, and just generally seems to know about popular stuff before you do' I have two friends like that, and at first it was overwhelming. I was like, oh no! Scrunchies aren’t in style' But what will I wear' And then they introduced me to seamless ponytail ties and ...

If it were up to me, I would eat peanut butter and jelly, salads and smoothies for breakfast, lunch and dinner (and maybe even in that order!) Unfortunately, you can’t really get away with that type of lifestyle when you have a family. Something about “balanced meals blah blah blah” 🙂 I really only have three good, go-to meals and, after several months of repeating those meals, plus throwing together ...

I love gift guides, because good gift guides introduce me to cool new things I would have never known about. In fact, one of my favorite gifts for my Mom I found from a gift guide: the Re-wined Candles! However, sometimes gift guides can just be money-grabs by websites or companies that want you to buy their stuff – even if it’s not the right gift for that special person ...

I’ve been paying off debt for the last 8 years, and over this time, I’ve talked about debt a lot. In fact, one of the reasons I started this blog was because I talked about debt so much, my family got sick of it. “Go tell someone else!” they told me. Since I had exhausted all my friend/family reserves, I decided to start this blog to document how I’m paying ...

As we get older, it gets a lot harder to maintain friendships. We may live far away from our best friends, they may have kids and less time to spend with us – things just change as we get older. However, just because we don’t spend as much time with our friends as we did when we were in our teens or early twenties doesn’t mean we love them any ...

“Don’t get me anything – I’ll be fine with a book or some socks!” Does this sound like your Dad' If so, we might be related. It’s become somewhat of a joke on TV shows – getting the best gift for Dad is impossible! You might as well win the lottery or avoid Dad for the holidays, because he either only wants expensive stuff or he doesn’t want anything. Well, sorry ...
