I hate dealing with customer service. Between the waiting and the semi-scripted verbal dancing, it’s a real waste of time. I know why I’m calling. The poor rep knows why I’m calling. Yet we still need to do this dance where he (or she) tries to retain me. Then I wait for a fantastic offer […]
Scholarships for college are available in so many places, but many students don’t realize it! Today, I’m going to share four places to find big (and small) scholarships for college. I’m passionate about this topic because I’ll never forget the day I received an e-mail saying I won a scholarship for my entire study abroad […]

I loved them. […]
My weekly shopping trip to the grocery store is always hectic. Just getting my two toddlers out the car and keeping track of them in the store seems like a job in itself #amiright? I’ve looked into subscribing to meal delivery services but it’s just not affordable once the promotional period ends. So, I’ve tried […]
If you only have a few minutes to focus on your money, it doesn’t make sense to start a two hour process. You won’t finish, the work will be wasted, and you’ll have to start over. Instead, if you have 15 minutes, do a 15 minute job. There are plenty of those, even if you […]
I grew up in New York and seemingly every Friday, I’d drive with my dad to a local pizza shop. I’d sit in the passenger seat, holding the box on my lap, as it tortured me during the agonizing ten minute drive home. The slices were delicious. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. […]
