Blog Report We’re half way through September so I thought this would be the perfect time to reflect back on August . Truthfully, these blog reports are becoming less and less interesting to me so I didn’t rush to whack one out. I’m just hoping this will be helpful to some of you. Shoot me a DM in Twitter if you have specific questions – don’t be shy. Any who, there’s nowhere ...

I tried writing this piece in my head for days. Then I remember something that happened to me that I never told anyone. I never even told my husband this story (unless Jared reads this, hi honey!). All the names in this story have been altered like in all of my life stories. Remember: the identity of those behind my life stories are rarely as important as the takeaways that makes them ...

Mrs. Picky Pincher is the money-saving maven and blogger at Picky Pinchers. She writes about living the good life while paying off $250,000 of debt.

Ahhh, it’s the time-tested story of the big guy versus the little guy. Goliath is a big dude ...

Listing On AirBnB Common Questions Every Host Should Already Know Putting a listing on AirBnB takes a lot of courage and some thick skin! You are essentially inviting people into your home with the power to critique. You will get your share of easy-going guests and you will also get your share of finicky ones that expect more. It’s all part of being a host. The platform is for homeowners and investors to ...

Our Financial Map I’m not trying to come off as a hipster but I made this financial map for Apathy Ends long before it started rolling. When I first joined the personal finance community in late March, I connected with Mr. AE on Twitter. He was one of my first follow backs on my Twitter. “How Complex is your Financial Map?” was his most recent post at the time and I ...

401K Taxes & Early Withdrawal Financial literally is important and as a personal finance blogger I sometimes take my knowledge for granted. This particular story happened to a former schoolmate of mine. She received what she thought was a “blessing” check. I would like to hide her identity so let’s call her Mandy. Any way, Mandy accidentally cashed out her family’s 401K check for a house down payment. This is her ...

I was initially going to smoosh the blog report into this family income report but I think we’ll just separate it. Somehow this post is already past 1,600 words and it’s just a simple family income update! FAMILY INCOME REPORT RECAP Welcome back to another family income report! I’ll be honest. I really checked out this month and put myself on auto pilot. I took a swing at the Zero Day Challenge in the first half ...

I Hate My Clothes I hate my clothes. My wardrobe is full of 70% blehs. There is plenty of stuff to wear but at the same time there is absolutely nothing to wear. Since I spoke so much of my awesome frugal wins last time, I decided to speak my mind about a perpetual frugal fail. Most of my entire wardrobe pre-husband has been either second-hand donations from my mom’s friends, the clearance ...
