  4. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    The show features Gail Vaz Oxlade helping people fix their $ issues (overspending). I like it in general, though the 'jars' (similar to envelope system) aren't for me. I like that one difference between Gail and Dave Ramsey is that Gail advocates contributing to retirement and savings while...

    When I first signed up for Suprise's 100 Day Challenge, a challenge to give something up for 100 days, my initial response was that all I could think of was things that I should DO for 100 days straight! So that is what this challenge is all about. What one thing that you know you should do...

APPARENTLY I paid the WRONG credit card, giving myself a $1300 credit on one credit card and the...

    For those who get Medicare Part D...remember today starts the new enrollment period. If you are planning on changing plans now is the time to do it! We switched my dh's plan and will be saving $450.40 based on his current drugs/premiums...which really helps since there is no COLA for 2010!
