One of my most visited posts here is about our zero budget camping adventure (it’s an older post but one that’s still very relevant). And after I posted on Instagram that my family and I went camping on the river with no access to facilities with a 5, 4, and (almost) 2 year old many folks wanted to know how we made it happened and what my best advice is ...

When it comes to money management, one of the biggest hangups that most folks deal with is saving money. But I don’t just mean saving money on your grocery purchases, I’m talking about saving real cash in a real savings account. According to a 2014 study, most American families only have about $788 in their checking account and even less in their savings account.  So, it comes as no surprise that ...

You finally did it – you made a budget and you’re working hard to stick to it and then bam! Your car breaks down, your spouse overspends, you start dreaming of that vacation you’re in desperate need of…and the list goes on and on.  I’ve been budgeting for a long time and I can tell you that this whole “real life on a budget” thing isn’t without its challenges and obstacles. ...

School is already back in session here in Georgia and if you’re one of the few lucky folks that get to wait until the leaves change and the temperature drops to head back to school, enjoy it…goodness I miss summer. Anyway, one of the most asked questions from last week was about school – not just saving money on the back-to-school stuff but about surviving this season. This year we have a ...

Recently, I sat down with a friend of mine for lunch and she opened up about some of her financial struggles. I knew she was working hard to pay off some credit card debt but what I didn’t know, was that she had a lot of debt. Her current debt load is over 6 figures and she doesn’t even have a mortgage! Her debt consists of 4 credit cards (she’s already paid off 2), ...

I’ve found myself struggling here lately with getting and being organized, which for a Type-A, routine-orientated person like myself, it’s really hard not being organized.  I kept trying planner after planner hoping for the system that would help me manage everything – my household, my family, my business, the kids’ school stuff, you know my life.
