Last month I got to sit down with my friends at Northwood Realty for a Think Tank session on moving with children. To be honest with you, it’s something I haven’t done yet–partially because our current housing situation is affordable, and partially because Holy Overwhelm. I have moved a lot, though, in my pre-kid life. It was great to sit down with a bunch of other moms who had been through ...

Did anyone take advantage of that promo code to go to LEGO® Brick Fest Live! this past weekend? If you didn’t–you missed out! It was such an incredibly fun day with so much to do. In the days leading up to the event, I got an earful about how cool the races were going to be, and how I better be ready to take pictures of the crashes. (Because that’s the ...

This post has been compensated by CreditRepair.com. Any time you apply for credit, the lender is going to take a look at your credit history and credit score. A good credit score can be the difference between abysmal interest rates and manageable interest rates. Better rates can save you a ton of money over the course of repayment. You don’t just have one credit score, though; you have many. There are several ...

I’ve got to be completely straight with you: I am not the world’s biggest hockey fan. Being from Pittsburgh, this is all but a sin. I’ve tried–truly. I will say that I enjoy the games much more when they’re live. We went to a scrimmage in 2013 near the end of the NHL lockout. When we were in Calgary this winter we even caught our hometown team play against the Flames. FRUGAL ...

Moving house is stressful for a wide number of reasons. One, you may have to start packing while you’re still working a full-time job and taking care of a family. Two, you may have a lot of things to pack, but no clear idea of how to go about it. Three, you may have fond memories of your current home and circle of friends and feel a little depressed about leaving it all ...

  I just happen to be incredibly lucky. I have kids, but I live close to family. Our income, while not huge, allows my husband to stay home with our children during the week. What does all this mean? We don’t have to pay for childcare. The living-near-family advantage was something we consciously chose to pursue, but we’re aware that not everyone has that luxury. We have some extra stuff going on at home ...

Today I want to stop and take a second to address something that’s not directly finance related: bullying. When I was growing up, bullying made you tough, supposedly, though it hardly ever happened to the “tough” kids. With boys it sometimes but not always got physical, while girls for the most part stuck to tearing each other’s souls apart with words. As time went on, anti-bullying campaigns became a thing. People started ...

It’s so interesting to me how many versions there are of the founding fathers.  From politics to religion, many different people associate many different ideals with each one, sometimes correctly, sometime erroneously, and sometimes both.  These were men founding a democratic republic in a world where Western society was still largely ruled by monarchies.   They had a lot of ideas.  They said a lot of things.  Over the courses ...

While I was in NYC last month, I got a chance to sit down and talk with Chris Chippindale, COO of Public Service Credit Union in Denver, Colorado. We talked about the intersection between credit unions and technology, and how that affects members’ security. This interview happens to be 360. Feel free to grab a headset and look around–you’ll see my friend Kristie in there with us, too. Or, if ...

A lot of times when we write about money, we pretend that our income will look like this: But just as the aging process doesn’t always go the way we want it to, studies show that for most American families, income doesn’t go up in a straight line at a 40 degree angle. For many of us, our income journeys will look more like this: It’s not a convenient truth. But it’s ...
