Daily Successful Living I started meal planning last month. It is kind of embarrassing that I’m 40 years old and finally doing a formal meal plan. I’ve tried doing it before but never stuck with it beyond a week here and there.

Daily Successful Living How To Find And Eliminate Spending Leaks In Your Budget I like spending money. There is something therapeutic about doing a little bit of random shopping. It is even better when you actually find that perfect outfit. Shopping is a great way to get away from your life for a few minutes. It is just you and racks of clothing. Here is my problem though. As much fun as shopping it, the spending ...

Daily Successful Living 5 Must Follow Tips To Help You Overcome Feelings Of Failure: Ella, my 16-month-old daughter is learning to be independent. She wants to do everything herself and is constantly failing.  She can’t get the lid on the container, she can’t get the food in her mouth with a spoon, she can’t walk straight and constantly falls. None of it phases her, she laughs, gets back up and tries again. Over and ...

Daily Successful Living How To Makeover Your Grocery Budget And Save Money On Food: I’ve been working on my grocery budget for years. I’m constantly trying new things in my attempts to keep it manageable. I do really well for a couple of months and then get lazy and end up wasting money again.

Daily Successful Living 12 Financial Success Tips I Wish I Had Learned In High School I thought I had an above average understanding of personal finance when I graduated from high school. After all, I knew how to balance a check book, I knew that debt was bad and I had done some fake stock market investing. I was ready to conquer the world when I went off to college. My financial education had so ...

Daily Successful Living Digit Review: How to Automate Your Saving Plan In 5 Minutes Saving money is kind of hard. I don’t mean just in the living frugally sense. I mean being able to keep money in your bank and not spend it. A few years ago I started putting my emergency fund in a completely different bank account to make it a little bit harder to “accidentally” use. It has worked great for me ...

Daily Successful Living How Step-Parents Can Cultivate Positive Relationships Between Half-Siblings: This weekend was special to me. We went camping with a bunch of our extended family. We go camping all of the time, so that part isn’t unusual. What is unusual is who we took with us. We took Aaron’s ex-wife’s daughter Ciara camping with us. She is family to me and Aaron even though she isn’t blood. I learned a really valuable lesson ...

Daily Successful Living I always enjoyed Zig Zigler work, but after listening to his audio book “Raising Positive Kids in a Negative World“, I’m completely sold. I wish I had listened to this audio years ago when I was trying to raise my teenage step-daughters. I feel really lucky to have stumbled across it now that I’ve got a toddler and am hoping to learn from the many mistakes I made with ...

Daily Successful Living Why You Need A Last Will Or Living Trust Now: This is kind of morbid, but Aaron and I just finished meeting with our attorney to draw up our wills and living trust. After almost seven years of marriage, we decided to get on the ball and have a professional will and trust executed. It hasn’t been a fun process. Preparing a will makes you think of all the worst ...
