Random Ramblings #2

Hello Friends. The last time I did a Random Ramblings was back in September 2013 (doesn’t that just seem like ages ago???) but since my life is very boring - eat, sleep, blog, work, pay down debt, repeat – it literally takes 6 months before I can ramble on about any new sort of semi interesting life updates. -First, the best […]

YES! YES! Luckily there are 4 Wednesdays in […]

Paying off Debt is Sexy and Saving Money is Safe

This post was inspired by my blogging buddy Alicia from Financial Diffraction and her insightful observation in my End of February 2014 Debt Repayment Update where she comments “I think you’re just so used to demolishing debt that accumulating savings doesn’t have the same pay-off in your head – maybe?” Maybe, yes, but let’s back up a little […]

My Blog, My Rules

GMD Disclaimer: My apologies in advanced if this post sounds like a rant. Because it unapologetically will be.  My Blog, My Rules. You don’t like it? *Insert not so nice comment here* Don’t read it!
