As I sit here reflecting on my three year long personal finance journey, I can’t help but laugh at how incredibly fortunate I’ve been (knock on wood). Some of the best decisions I’ve made, in regards to my financial well being, were accidents. Thought I’d share a few examples with you today… Credit Card: I […]

Well, yesterday was eventful. Woke up to this text message from my mom yesterday…. Just a few notes about that text message… 1) I live in a major city, yet somehow I only have one bar of service. AT&T sucks! 2) Yes, my mother’s name in my phone is “Mummsy.” 3) My mom apparently thinks […]
