  • Blog Post: Library Sales-Entertainment on a Budget

    Calling all bookworms, literati, and bibliophiles! If the preceding terms apply to you, then you share my affliction: a lifelong love of reading and an explosion of books, books everywhere. Or to be Seussical about it: Books that are whimsical, books that are blue, books in the pantry, and books in the...
  • Blog Post: I Need To Lose 10 Pounds On The Cheap

    I vowed on my birthday in April that I was going to be 10 pounds lighter by "Bikini Season." It's now June...and I'm not a pound lighter! What can I say?! Story of my life! So...it's time to get cracking. First up: exercise. It's summertime, so it's a great time to exercise...
  • Blog Post: Enjoying the Fruits of Summer....Literally!

    Best thing about summer? Eating light. No one wants to eat when it's hot out. Who wants to have the stove on, the cookers burning, or even sit in a restaurant on a nice evening? You want to enjoy the weather, eat light, and be comfortable. Summer is the best time to visit your local Farmer's...
  • Blog Post: I'm Pinching My Pennies....How Can I Still Have Summer Fun?

    I'm on a tight budget. I am paying for an upcoming wedding and I have very little room for additional expenses. So, what can I possibly look forward to for summer fun? I have put some thought into this. I enjoy the summer. I moved from the cold winters up North to a nice Southern state because I...
  • Blog Post: How Did We Get Here?

    So here we are-in Debt Management. I'm two years into my Debt Management Plan and some days I still find myself thinking: "This is crazy! How, how, HOW did I get here?" We all have our stories though, right? I know for me it helps to read about other people's experiences, frustrations...
  • Blog Post: Singles Tricks for Making Meals Last

    Some people wanted champagne and caviar when they should have had beer and hot dogs. - - - Dwight D. Eisenhower I thought this was an appropriate way to start out!

  • Blog Post: Am I Ready To Share My Debt?

    Strange question, I know. But when thinking about my blog this week and giving the wedding update last week, it got me thinking. I have done a darn good job for myself the last two years, financially. I worked a budget, I paid down a huge amount of debt, I remain credit card free, and really value what...
  • Blog Post: Planning for the Future: Single Style!

    Being single means that you, and you alone, have control of your finances. This has many positive points. You decide what to spend your money on - where to scale back and when it's necessary to splurge. You don't have anyone complaining about your spending habits and you don't have to "hide...
  • Blog Post: Preparing for "I Do"

    I thought it would be easy. I was wrong! I am now a firm believer that there is no way to do a wedding simple...seriously. I tried. What was originally going to be a destination wedding followed by a family party to celebrate has turned into a year-long event! Not only that, I have to do it all while...
  • Blog Post: A Costly Appetite

    Food. The one thing that's been the hardest for me to budget for has been food. Something so simple can cause such headaches for me! Even though I am recently engaged, my fiancé is in an industry that has him traveling more than he's at home, so I still find myself at that "table...
  • Blog Post: Have You Thought About a Staycation?

    As I write this today, it's one of the warmest days we've had in a while. There is not a cloud in the sky and I'm wearing flips-flops for the first time in 2010. (My feet are desperately in need of a little attention and some nail polish, but don't tell!) So, of course, warm weather....
  • Blog Post: Think About Volunteering

    What are your thoughts about volunteering? I know just a couple years ago I always had good intentions of volunteering, but took on selfish thoughts about it-- it takes a lot of my free time, I don't want to feel forced to do something, etc. Well, those thoughts changed quickly. When I started to...
  • Blog Post: How Fit Are You?

    So about two and a half years ago I decided I wanted to change the way I was living. One of those changes was to become fit, sure financially fit, but what I didn't bargain for was how becoming physically and financially fit began to work hand in hand. I was in a depressed state. I had reached "rock...
