  2. 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...

  7. Money challenges
    Ok all, I've said in various posts, I love music. I have a HUGE music collection and if I listened to it straight, I could listen to it for a month without hearing the same thing twice!
