On a positive note, that is an increase of about 5.1 million since the fall 2000, some 17 years ago.

There are 600 grocery carts in the store and I keep picking the one with the front wheel that spins around like a ballerina on speed. -Everyone Ever wonder how you can spend $45 in a matter of minutes and walk out with two bags of groceries? On the east coast, a store called Harris Teeter is notorious for sending customers home with 1-2 bags and out of $40. All sarcasm aside, ...

In my most recent post I showed how using the debt snowball with $600 could help a couple wipe out $60,000 in debt from student loans and credit cards. In 10 years that same couple could be mortgage free just using that same extra $600. Though I think most people can find ...
