June 17, 2013

Quit being a wuss. Subscribe to my blog. What items, for less than $100, can you buy that will greatly increase your quality of life? Here’s what I’ve come up with… 1. A great pair of sandals. I put my first pair of Rainbows 9 years ago and have never looked back. Totally worth the […]

Poll Thursday: Special Friday Edition

Apparently yesterday was Thursday. I didn’t get the memo and as a result didn’t have a poll for you. But fear not, I got a super fun one for ya as we head in to the weekend.

June 5, 2013

If you’ve been reading PDITF for longer than, say five minutes, you’ll know I’m not necessarily the smartest PF blogger of the bunch. But what I lack in brains I make up for in crappy stick figure drawings…right? Over the years I’ve read a handful of articles about 401k loans. Most articles pretty much say […]
