Third Earth Day Is My Birthday Green Goods Giveaway

It’s April and time for another giveaway! Before we get to the giveaway details let’s recap what we are celebrating. I share my birthday with Earth Day on April 22, and for the past three years I’ve used this time to educate you about going green. You’ve heard it all before.

Free Premium Federal Tax Filing From H&R Block

It's Our Two Year Blogging Anniversay

It’s Our Two Year Blog Anniversay

Today is the second anniversary of the launch of this blog, and boy, have we both come a long way, baby. Two years ago, I did not have the love of my life (Puppy, of course), I was very unhappy, over $120,000 in debt and clueless as to what to do. After lurking around a multitude of personal finance blogs, I decided to start one myself. I have heard many times that ignorance is bliss, but I did not know the exact extent until earnestly blogging for the past few years. I laugh now at my ignorance, nay, arrogance then. […]
