Just like that, we are one fourth of the way through 2018! Once again, we
made really good progress in the spending realm and came up spending the
least amount of money this year! This makes us pretty happy in the Summit
of Coin household! We even took a little trip to the Laredo to visit my
wife's grandmother. This trip was great for our family as got a chance to ...
In the future, we plan on sending our daughter to college. And like most
parents, we worry about the cost of college and how we will pay for it.

For a while now, I have been meaning to update my recommendation page And
when I say "for a while," I mean 6 months or more. I found another blogger,
who used an article to share their recommendations as a blog post. I
thought, "What a great idea!" So, here it goes! All of the things that I

The other day I was doing some light reading, by catching up on articles
from other bloggers around the internet. During this website trip, I
stumbled upon a great article from Chris at Keep Thrifty (Save Even More By

Well February is over and I am pretty happy with the progress we made this
month. Despite our struggles with more unexpected expenses, we still found
a way to cut back and come out under budget in February (Yippee). We even
took a little trip to the Austin area to visit my wife's grandmother. This
trip was great for our family as we visited a state park, went hiking and

Last summer, I wrote an article titled, "Americans Not Prepared for
Emergencies." This article sparked some interest from some of my friends
and some readers. They insisted that not everybody knows how to save and
