  5. Blog
    This is a simple question that I ask myself that helps me stay debt free. It may sound infantile or even stupid to some, but if you take the question seriously each time you ask it as I have, it has saved me from making a lot of poor purchases over the year. I know because when I was younger, I...

  13. Question and Answer
    I am wondering if any of you have a moment of hesitation or guilt when you make a larger purchase, even if it is planned for? As some of you know, I have 2 wonderful grand daughters. When the first was on her way, I made up my mind that I would buy her a Barbie motorized car when she was old...
  14. Just Tips
    This tip might seem silly, but I'm sure there's someone out there like me who runs out of money and then realizes they forgot to buy something when it's too late :) I figured out on average how many days a box of diapers, a can of formula, package of wipes etc lasts me and then I write when...
