Presale Paradise

by Girl Ninja on July 20, 2011 · 20 comments

It has come a little late…but wait no longer.  Moving is BUSY, and I have a sick Ninja at home (no post from him today) so I am finally getting to sit down and share my treasures from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.   The presale appointment for my mom, sister and me was set at […]

Gaming the system

I wrote a mildly popular blog post a few weeks back about my disdain for extreme couponers, you know people that spend 30+ hours/week searching for, and ultimately buying, a bunch of crap they don’t need. Well, I got an email from a reader, Emily, asking for my thoughts on a popular, new way to […]

Got a guest post for you today. Hope you enjoy it 🙂 Girl Ninja will be out with her friends tonight, so I plan to knock out a few articles  for the rest of the week. I miss you guys, in a totally creepy/stalker way. Whenever I’m looking for a pick-me-up or some inspiration, I […]

I hate that most of my blog posts focus around home ownership, but I’m not gonna lie, it’s been on my mind a lot lately. Girl Ninja and I are doing our best to save up $100,000 so we can have the freedom and flexibility to buy what we want, when we want it. Working […]

I was asking Girl Ninja what I should blog about tonight (she is often the source of inspiration of my posts) and we began talking about dedicated savings account. We ended the conversation agreeing to disagree. She likes the idea of multiple dedicated savings accounts and I hate it. We debated for about 2 minutes […]
