WE MADE IT TO FRIDAY!!! GO US!!! I wish I had something exciting to reward you with, but I suppose it’s rewarding enough just to read my clever notes here, eh? ;) Can’t be too bad out there if The Sexy is still around!

The average amount spent was $102.42, which was an increase of 21% from 2018’s figure of $84.67. In 2020, 35% of Fortnite spenders were unaware that […]

Mornin’!

I don’t know who made this, but they’re my favorite person of the month: Haha… So ridiculous and genius at the same time! :) And it probably WORKS!! Because it gets you to STOP and think for a second before whipping out that card and spending away out of habit vs intention.
