“A library is one of the few remaining places that cares more about you than your wallet.” Truth nuggets dropping today, boy! That library is a frugal man and woman’s best friend! And that passage comes from a thoroughly fantastic article in itself linked below, as well as a handful of other great reads I’ve enjoyed over the months… Lots of great writers and ideas out there, and hopefully these just ...

46 Tips To Save You Time, Money, and Trouble (From The 1950’s!) Here’s something you don’t see every day: a pamphlet from 1958 giving you over 300 tips “to save you time, money and trouble!” Found it on Ebay for $3.00 and just had to pick it up for the blog :) (You’re welcome) There’s a ton of stuff that’s no longer applicable (sewing machine tips, typewriter hacks, and a bunch ...

After multiple confirmations over the months that we can continue to rent our house until the end of the school year, our landlords decided to kick us out anyways, despite how pregnant my wife is or the slew of promises that we had planned our life around.

What’s up, fiscal friends! Been answering a lot of $$$ questions lately in emails, and thought I’d pass some of them along here in case anyone else is wondering about ’em too… Most of it’s on investing, but there’s also some questions on paying off debt, buying a first home, taking on school loans, tax refunds, and then a smattering on blogging as well. Always […] ...

What up what uuuuuuup! Got another idea for y’all today: a mixture between a Depth Year that we fell in love with last month, and a No Spend Challenge which we fall in love with pretty much every other month, haha… It’s called the #YearofNo, and a blogging friend of mine just completed her 2nd year of it, paying off over $24,000 of debt now […] ...
