Hola mi amors,
Have a great week? Wallets nice and plump? You check out my new lists of the Best Money Blogs I built over at Rockstar Finance? You should as soon as you’re done entering today’s giveaway :) I spent a handful of hours pumping out the best blogs in personal finance, debt, savings, early retirement and even through to the best millennial blogs I’ve seen over my 7 years in the biz.
I give you full permission to cheat on me this weekend and read any of them! But only on the weekend…
That’s great Jay, but who won all those money books from last week?? Tell me!! I want to know soooo badd!!!
Okay okay, pipe down. Here are the 5 winners…
Wait, 5? Weren’t there only 4 books? Did you forget to drink your coffee again today??
Oh yeah! Forgot to tell you – my man Steve Miller over athit me up and ask that I randomly select one more winner to give them the book of their choice too. He loved the idea of passing on the good word on $$$$ and wanted to participate. Isn’t he swell?
Awwww he is! Now stop typing in this weird Q&A format and get to it already, jeez…
So you don’t want to hear about the other book that was donated to us by Robert for y’all today? The one about retiring early and living the life you’ve always dreamed of since you were 12? 22? 42? Okay…. but it was a good one…
