By Kristie Gilmore My dad worked in a steel mill.  There were times when money was really good and other times when he would go on strike or get laid off from work.  One time, he was laid off for 8 months.  My parents had to budget and save their money for times when his work wasn’t as good.

Most American families are confronted with news and issues surrounding the economy on an almost daily basis. But I must admit, it is easy to let big words and unfamiliar terms fly over my head.

When I was little my Dad used to always say that the easiest way to cook was to simply throw things into a Crockpot and simply walk away. The problem was that I had no idea what a Crockpot was but I trusted my Dad. What my Dad failed to mention was that using a Crockpot could save me a ridiculous amount of money. Instead of buying a ton of ...

Hi there! My name is Paul Scrivens and I’m a blogger. That’s such a weird thing to say because the term blogger doesn’t have the best connotation but that’s really what I am. I have blogs and I write for them so technically I’m a blogger. However, if you really want to dive deeper into then I guess you could say that I’m a problem solver, but that’s a bit ...

Your credit score. A 3-digit number, that most of us don’t understand and would love if we could totally just forget about it. Well, you can if you plan on buying a car and house in cash. But the odds are you aren’t quite there yet or you wouldn’t be reading this post. But I pray one day you will be. The reality for most of us is that your ...
