I started writing this post over three weeks ago, and right smack in the middle of it I got the call that we were gonna have the baby the next day. I had to stop writing it, of course, against my hustling nature (though I did sneak on to share the 2-week early surprise! ;)), but interestingly enough I’ve thought about this article almost every […]

One of my favorite sayings is “You gotta spend money to make money.” I don’t know why I like it so much considering it’s not always the case, but I guess the times when it is I just really REALLY love it :) Like, say, contributing to your company’s 401(k) plan. You “spend” a percentage of your paycheck every two weeks to better your future, […]

That’s right. I said “extreme couponer” and “bachelorette” in the same sentence :) Because any of you who watch either will recognize Chrystie in a second with her trademark tattoos and feistiness. All stuff that made me reach out to her for this interview! (You’re welcome.) But for those who may be out of this “cool” group who’s “in the know” (I freely admit I’m […]

SO THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! It’s hard to run a blog […]

Last year I wrote 350 articles here. A handful of them were awesome, half of them were decent, and the rest were just “meh.” Today’s post highlights some of those in that first category for all those who might have missed out on ‘em… Or shall I say, “forgotten” ‘em since I know you wouldn’t dare skip a day reading this most magnificent blog, would […]
