It’s crazy to say it out loud, but we’re officially living on one paycheck now! WOW.  The first time ever since meeting my wife a good 6+ years ago… and the funny part is I almost didn’t catch it!  (I would have at some point, of course, but it def. took me a few weeks for it to actually hit me ;)) Mrs. BudgetsAreSexy’s been […]

Could You Quit Using Money Forever?

June 6, 2012
