This post may contain affiliate links, and this blog could earn a small commission if affiliate links are used. For more information, check out my disclaimer. I work with a difficult person. Believe me, calling her “difficult” is kind. I could regale you with all the bizarre behavior that makes working with her especially difficult, but why bitch-bond? We are better than that. And besides, you know who I am ...

As I’ve alluded to in a previous post, and I’ve now accepted with certainty: I’m a workaholic. Though introspection and asking myself questions I’ve never asked myself before, I came up on this hard truth with a screeching halt.  I’ve always been an over-achiever and it has served me well throughout life. Despite having some hiccups in my personal life in my early 20’s, I generally do well with whatever ...

Making any sort of decision can sometimes be overwhelming. Some of the biggest decisions we’ll ever make in life have far-reaching consequences that affect us for a long time. And if these decisions have financial repercussions…shooooo. If I allowed myself, I’d easily pore over these numbers for days! I am a thinker and planner by nature. Any time I need to work toward something significant, I prefer to organize my ...

Welcome to my first ever monthly spending report! We do spend money, and live a comfortable, privileged life. However, there is some intentionality in how we spend our money. The objective almost always is to spend money on things which enrich our lives. So I talk about money all the time, and love budgeting. How does this play out in my real life?  Here’s a summary of what This Fascinating ...

Here is another weekly installment of Living Frugally where I share my frugal accomplishments for the past week. Be sure to share your frugal successes in the comments! Since we went on a cruise a few weeks ago, we budgeted a significant amount for spending on the cruise. It was our honeymoon, and we wanted to be sure we had plenty of money for any shopping, gambling, or foodie purchases. ...

There are many different types of retirement accounts out there; it’s hard to keep track of all the nuances between them. Like, why do some employers offer a 401(k), and others offer a 403(b)? Is one better than the other?  If you’ve done any research on the two plans, you may have come across information that implies 403(b)’s aren’t as advantageous as 401(k)’s. Why not? Anyway, whatever your employer gives ...

I am always trying to learn. Usually, I read at least one Personal Finance article a day—most days, multiple articles. One suggestion I see often, that I absolutely love is: avoid lifestyle inflation. Oh snap! This is genius, relatively simple to do, and makes a huge difference. It’s also really challenging to reverse engineer if lifestyle inflation has already creeped in.  What is Lifestyle Inflation? Simply put, lifestyle inflation (or ...

Here is another weekly installment of Living Frugally where I share my frugal accomplishments for the past week. Be sure to share your frugal successes in the comments! Last week I didn’t post my weekly Living Frugally installment because we were cruisin’! (I was on a 7-day cruise. It was magnificent.) But I’m back now! When we arrived back home from the cruise, we did all kind of chores. Mostly ...
