Originally, I planned on including this post within last month’s 2018 Year-In-Review post. But then, I started rambling a little bit too much about my failures, and I realized I probably needed to wrap it up. So now, fingers recharged, I’m back and ready to get typing!

Have you ever done something that you thought was totally normal, only to be met with shock when you shared it with the rest of the world?

Last year I dared to go where no other blogger dared to go. I wrote a post about my New Year’s resolutions. Okay, maybe that’s not so unusual. It seems like every blogger posts their New Year’s Resolutions these days. But how many of those bloggers actually follow up on whether they kept those resolutions?

Drumroll… please… No seriously, can we make this a really cool, dramatic intro? Maybe dim the lights a little. Throw on some spooky music. And would it kill you to get a fog machine and an acrobat or two? Because today, I’m debuting a concept that I’ve wanted to publish since I first stated this […] The post The Money Wizard’s 2018 Spending – Revealed! appeared first on My Money Wizard. ...
