    I want to show you how easy it is to fall into negative money habits in just twenty-one days. We often think that money problems come about over a long time (and they sometimes do), sneaking up on you after years of overspending, medical problems, reliance on credit, or underemployment. But the sad fact is that it can take as little as twenty-one days for you to fall into bad money habits that can ruin your nest egg.

    It is an accepted part of self-help wisdom that it takes twenty-one ...
  2. Top Dollar Store Finds

    For a store where everythingís a dollar, Iím surprised I donít shop there more often.

    I worked from 6:00Am to after 11:00pm and should be sleeping but too wound up. Unfortunately I don't get paid for all that. I am salaried on the first job and then the drive time to the second job isn't paid either. I am going to hit the sack soon, as I have to get up and do it all over again.
