At any given time, if you were to log into my Amazon account, you would see items sitting in the shopping cart.  At present, there is only one item: the “Supersmile Professional Teeth Whitening System” for a cost of $36.10. Will I buy this item? No. This may lead you to wonder why it is […] ...

I’m so excited! The existence of something called The Liebster Award was unknown to me until very recently, when I was nominated by a fellow blogger. As I understand it, it is fun a way for bloggers to recognize other bloggers who are writing content in their domain worth reading. We bloggers are inspired by […] ...

For the financially-minded, working for a large corporation has its advantages. Sure, the whole corporate grind is a little like having your soul sucked out through your nostrils by some mechanical proboscis, but they are at least willing to pay handsomely for said use of your soul. My company has some good perks. The 401(k) […] ...

What is it about receiving money you weren’t expecting that fills us with glee? As a child it was like finding a treasure, because it literally WAS found money. Grandma called it “pennies from heaven.” Like a nickel on the sidewalk. Even as an adult though, now that found money comes in the form of […] ...

When I first started this blog in a fit of exuberance*, after a few posts I admitted that I was super eager to get started and was having difficulty with the fact that it would be some time before I could implement my Diabolical Plan. That was two months ago, so I thought it might be […] ...

Mental illness has a stigma, and money is taboo. This should be fun! When I started this blog I had every intention of talking about the poor financial decisions I’ve made during my life that got me to where I am now: 47, in debt, and feeling like I’ve squandered all of my good fortune. […] ...

Junior and I are cat people, and we find ourselves now without a cat for the first time since he was born. After an illness that didn’t respond to treatment, we sent our 17 year-old cat across the rainbow bridge to Valhalla last year, which was a difficult time for all involved. For the most […] ...

I just can’t believe that my English teacher marked me down in high school for using too many parenthetical statements in my text. To be fair, he usually liked my work and I low-key suspect it was a ploy to make sure no one knew I was his favorite. (I mean really? Too many parentheses? […] ...

If you could see me right now, I would be doing a happy little jig like my grandpappy after a few rounds of Jamison. I sold my second vehicle today and have no more car payments! It was only a couple of years old and still in great shape, relatively few miles, so I took […] ...

I am a single woman with one kid and that is a picture of my garage. You may notice that it contains a royal shit ton of boxes. Oddly enough, I noticed the same thing. Some of the boxes contain stuff belonging to Junior, but most of them are mine. Worse yet, they are the […] ...
