In honor of National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, my husband talked me into telling my older brother’s story. My brother took his life when I was 14.  17 years later, his loss still feels almost as devastating as it did the day he died. I can talk about almost any aspect of my childhood, the cult, […]

I love his personal finance blog, but I particularly love the post above because it summarizes some brilliant but very simple tips for building wealth. I was curious to see how my husband and I […]

So this post is nothing more than an attempt to solicit advice from anyone who has experience or an opinion on buying or building a tiny house. If you do, please share your thoughts on my extremely half-baked, hastily written idea below. I actually want to hear if or why it’s a terrible idea, so any feedback is […]

Every two weeks, I’ll be posting a quick bi-weekly update on how our student loan debt payoff is progressing. That way, I’m more on the hook to keep on track with goals.

In spite of it all, she’s truly the most positive, determined person that I’ve ever known. Whenever I have a big issue or problem, I find myself going […]

In the 5 years that my husband and I have been together, we’ve always agreed that keeping our finances separate made the most sense for our specific situation. Ever since date #3, we’ve known each other’s whole financial back story, income and debt. Since we’ve been together, we’ve communicated openly and honestly about money, and we’ve trusted and consulted […]
