Remember that drinking game where every time you can’t answer “true” to the questions you have to take a shot? And every time you look around you realize your friends are just as crazy as you are? We’re gonna play this game today, only instead of alcohol we’re swapping in coffee (and instead of random sexual questions, we’re sticking to financial ones ;)) Close your […]

In a nutshell: I spent a lot of money on coffee and bagels, haha… But also books and history* stuff! Here’s a list of everything I spent on “wants” for the past 30 days. I decided to keep it to only the stuff I spend on *myself* vs others (kids, charities, etc) since that’s what I was most wondering about, and since I’m not looking […]

you can afford the stock

Just saw this quote from Mabel @ GirlsOnTheMoney.com and cannot get enough of it!! (Captured by @AllSheSaves from this past Lola Retreat) How true is this???
