Occasionally I’ll see things on the web that inspire a blog post, and something that has popped up here and there in the personal finance sphere is subscription boxes. Specifically, how they’re a waste of money and if you buy them, you’re a lazy, uncreative Millennial who must enjoy wasting her money. I say ‘her’ because it seems to me that people who say subscription boxes are a “waste of money” ...

You’ve probably heard by now about the Harvey Weinstein scandal, and other stories of men using their positions of power to coerce women into doing things they didn’t want to do, because the women felt they had to. You may have seen the hashtag campaign on Twitter and Facebook, where women posted #MeToo if they had been victims of sexism or sexual assault. What you may not have seen a lot ...

If you’ve never been to a conference for work before, you are missing out – yes, on the connections and networking, but especially the swag. For introverts like me, swag at a conference is the best! Not only do you get stuff, but usually while you’re hanging around the swag, you meet other swag-grabbers and start chatting – networking and free stuff all at once! However, going to conferences is not ...

Earlier this year, I was having a really tough time with my full-time job. It got to the point where my only goal was to get out of there and do something, anything, else. But since we have a mortgage and bills to pay, I knew I couldn’t just submit my two weeks resignation and call it good. After all, who would feed the dog?? My husband works and has a ...

It all started with a promise, a promise I made to myself and my phone: everything I put in you, Notes app, I will buy at the store and not a single thing more. Yeah, sometimes I talk to my apps, don’t you? I went to the store, super proud of this promise I made, and then suddenly my phone became ashamed of me. I exited the Notes app and, ashamed ...

Recently, I was searching for housewarming gift for an old friend from college who just purchased her first home. It was really tough for me to choose a gift for her with all the great options available online – I tend to get a little carried away when it comes to presents. Related: My Ruthless Christmas Gift Plan Making it extra hard was that my husband and I had just moved into ...

I looked at the utility statement, then at one of my soon-to-be roommates, then at the paper statement again in disbelief. “The utility company says we can’t get utilities unless I have my parents co-sign or unless we pay a huge deposit.” Our eyes wide, we stared at each other – two hopeless 22-year-olds who still needed their parents (because you know we didn’t have tons of money for a ...

Hey everyone! I’m currently indulging in a House Hunters International binge-watching fest – I love almost all of the House Hunters shows (House Hunters regular, International, Where Are They Now?, Renovation, Tiny House) but House Hunters International is definitely one of my favorites. It feels like I’m traveling without even getting off the couch That said, isn’t it funny that people still want super modern amenities even when moving abroad? Okay, so I’m actually ...

I’ve been freelancing since 2014, basically ever since I started blogging. Back then (saying that makes me feel old but it does seem like it was a while ago!), getting freelance clients seemed a lot easier. Most of my clients came as referrals from other bloggers, who had too much work on their own and who passed their contacts on to me. Earning money on the side was the biggest way ...

Debt is stupid. I’m just going to say it: debt, itself, is stupid. When I say that, I don’t mean people who have debt are stupid, or the reasons they got into debt are stupid (although sometimes that happens; we’ve all probably fallen into some fugly fashion trend once or twice and bought it on credit). And yes, before you lecture me: I am in debt, I accept responsibility for ...
