88 Days ago, Mr. Money accepted a new position after he was contacted by a company numerous times offering him an Executive Chef position. He had turned down the company twice before he decided that he was going to seriously consider working for them. He had an interview where they talked with him, he performed […]
Everything here has been a whirlwind lately since Mr. Money lost his job a couple months ago. We’ve been trying to keep our heads above water, and I feel like we’ve been doing a pretty good job doing that so far. One of the hardest things for me is when I have a million transactions […]
Many times over the past almost six years that I’ve been a stay at home mom, I’ve been riddled with guilt over our decision. Thoughts float around in my head: “Should I go back to work?”, “Will we be able to save enough for retirement without me financially contributing at this moment?”, “I really wish we […]
For many years now, I’ve set financial goals at the beginning of every year. Here are 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015. Last year, we set goals for 2017 and today I’m going to see just how well we did. 2017 was extremely hard as Mr. Money lost his job at the end of July. […]

When Mr. Money lost his job last year, we went into survival mode.

Mr. Money has been studying software development for over a year now, and actually was accepted to […]
“How much does a dental implant cost?” is not a question I ever wanted to know the answer for. However, last fall we found out first hand just how expensive a dental implant is. Mr. Money had a tooth that had become painful and he made a trip to our general dentist for an exam. […]
If you own a house, chances are you’ve considered making extra principal mortgage payments in an effort to pay your house off faster. However, there are some pros and cons to paying a mortgage off early. I was always under the impression that when we were in a financial position to prepay pay the mortgage […]
The past year and a half have been pretty rough for us. My husband lost his job last summer, started a new job about five months later, and started classes to pursue a new career field. Sometimes I get disappointed thinking about all the things we can’t do right now, what we can’t afford, and […]
A few months ago, I visited my primary care physician begging her to run blood work on me to test various functions: thyroid, my blood sugar (A1C), and anything else she thought could be causing the symptoms I was experiencing. I felt awful every day; like I was seriously dying. I was waking up in […]
