USAA Blogger of The MonthIt’s Friday, yo!  Get sexy!  And can’t remember if I’ve told y’all or not, but guess who’s USAA’s Military Blogger of The Month??  It’s me, it’s me!

Haha… The month is almost over, and they’ll soon swap out the next lucky winner, but it felt great while it lasted :)  Nothing like your favorite company in the whole world giving you a fist bump.

Happy Friday!

PS: Some of my favorite tools:
personal capital Personal Capital (FREE) -- If you’re looking for a robust financial tracker, Personal Capital is the way to go! They’re like Mint, but on steroids and have much better tools for investment and net worth tracking. // Full review
digit.co Digit (FREE) -- A super easy (and automated) way to save. Every day Digit analyzes your income and expenses and will push money aside for you any time it sees extra sitting there. I've saved over $4,000 myself using them so far! // Full review

Just discovered your blog, J and I’m loving it. What a great story and inspiration. I’m still digging out of the debt hole but I’m on a plan to get my net worth to a positive number by May 23, 2012 (fingers crossed).

Seeing you’re also a USAA man really put the cherry on the cake. Congrats on a great honor and thanks for the blog!
