So, it’s time that I admit the truth – we won’t meet our goal of paying off our mortgage this year. As of right now, we have just over $18,000 left and originally, we had planned to pay off our mortgage by 12/31/17 (the mortgage started at $27,938.08 in Jan 2017). I won’t lie, itContinue reading...

Here’s the thing, no matter what end of the income spectrum you fall, you’re not immune to money issues. Because here’s the thing, money is a thing. Money doesn’t care about you or me or your neighbor. Money doesn’t care what you look like, what kind of car your drive, or if you went toContinue reading...

Family traditions. Chances are, your family probably has a few family traditions that are unique to just yours and of course, our family has our own family traditions as well.  Now, maybe you’re wondering why I’m talking about family traditions since I write mostly about personal finance, well after a few comments on a few recent Instagram posts, I realized that many families feel like they can’t afford family traditions and ...

Even though I’m a huge debt-free advocate, I totally understand that purchasing a home in cash can be a steep hill to climb. Don’t get me wrong, it is possible to purchase a home in cash (my friend Kim did) but in some cases it can make sense to take out a mortgage for a home.  It’s no secret that there is a renting crisis happening here in the United States. ...
