  • Blog Post: What Ghandi has to do With Debt Management

    There are a million and one tips and tricks out there for how to save money, how to budget wisely, or how to pinch a penny at a time when pennies seem tough to come by. Some days though, I find myself asking not, "What else can I do?" but "How much longer can I keep this up?" I know...

    Do you feel like you have had nothing but bad news since you began focusing on your debt and how to get out of it? I know I have. Can't seem to catch a break.

  • Blog Post: I am so over OVERDRAFT fees!

    These wonderful little fees have become my worst nightmare. When I was using credit cards, I never dealt with these fees because if my account got low, I charged! Well, as I work my budget and unforeseen expenses come up, sometimes I come up a little short the day before my paycheck goes in. I never...
  • Blog Post: Even we have to prepare for Back-to-School

    Let's face it. Even if you don't have kids, the concept of "back-to-school" hits all of us. The idea of summer for everyone is a time to be a little more carefree than the rest of the year. Vacations are planned. Offices close up a bit earlier, and more often. All in all, the thrill...
  • Blog Post: What's in your pantry?

    There has been one thing that has remained consistent over the 2 years that I have been on my DMP...I cannot figure out how to spend less on food. I have tried it all!

  • Blog Post: Don't lose out on summer fun

    How many times do we say, "If I just had 1 more hour..." or "I would be able to get so much more done, if I just had another day..." Let's think about it though. Would we really, or is it just an excuse? I spent an entire summer interning in Washington, D.C. years ago. I couldn't...
  • Blog Post: Who has the time....or the money?

    I was recently invited to a "Memory Keeping Party." Not one to do the Pampered Chef, Tupperware, or Candle Parties, I pulled my friend aside and gently told her that although I would love to go, I was not in a position to purchase anything at this point and I was going to pass. "No, no...
  • Blog Post: Cash for Gold

    I was skeptical. I mean, put a bunch of jewelry in a bag, send it away, and get a check for it? It didn't seem quite right. It was a time when I was a little desperate for some cash, so I did it. I put in a few things that didn't mean much to me...that way if I lost out I wouldn't be too...
  • Blog Post: Goodbye Cable...

    Do you like TV? Yeah, me too. I love me some 30 Rock like nobody's business. So believe me when I say that I am not an uber-intellectual who decries HBO as the opiate of the masses. But brace yourself for something shocking... I don't have cable. That's right, it's been about four years...
  • Blog Post: Intelligent Risk Brings Rewards

    One of my favorite quotes is from Thoreau: "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you imagined." It has always reminded me that to live the life that you want, it's up to you...and only you! To accomplish this, I'm a risk taker at times. My friends and family...
  • Blog Post: Ready To Give Up on Becoming Debt Free?

    The thought has crossed my mind. I have been in my DMP for 2 full years now. There has been more than one time that I have thought about throwing in the towel. Usually it is because my monthly budget doesn't work, or I see something that I really want to purchase, but there is just no extra money...
