I was going to say that we’ve been poor at posting on the site recently. But that’s an understatement – the last post was at the end of January. So what are our excuses?

So what do you do when your other half suggests you spend a lot of money to save money. Not with my our money, you don’t. But then my husband proceeds to tell me about a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet with some of the founders of FI and get one-to-one advice at a 1-week conference, a Chautauqua. Chatta-what?

So, it turns out that our tooth fairy suffers from forgetfulness.  She’s 1 for 3 in our limited experience with her.  Leia was not overly surprised by the latest fairy failure last night.  I’d like to think she’s learning valuable lessons about how unfair and unreliable the world is …But the truth is, the world […] The post Our tooth fairy has amnesia appeared first on Cutting Through Chaos. ...

There’s nothing I love more than tracking the spend on my latest Death Star project on a spreadsheet. I love personal finance. And spreadsheets.
