5 Tips Your Family Can Use to Save for Your Next Vacation

I’m really excited to welcome Greg from Club Thrifty! We have a few family vacations planned for the upcoming year so I was really glad they had some tips they wanted to share with you all. I’ve already implemented a few of these 😉 Travel is one of those things that almost everyone wishes they could do more of. And can you blame them? There’s nothing like getting away from your day to day routine and seeing the world. So…

Making Side Cash With Job Spotter

Making Side Cash With Job Spotter

Before I start I just want to say that I do NOT get any money of any kind from Indeed.com for this post. This is just me trying to help you 🙂 For the last few years, I have always been on the lookout for decent and passive ways to make side cash without having to do a lot of effort. I’ve done the Amazon MTurk (so not worth it) and all the survey sites you can imagine. All of…

Roadtrip Mistake

Roadtrip Mistake

It is official…I’ve dropped the ball. With all of the craziness from our extended weekend trip, I forgot to schedule something for today! I had planned on something but between seven hours of driving (1 unscheduled stop), carrying a toddler up and down the stairs for every water slide, and learning my son screams at his brother in his sleep (can’t he just talk like a normal person?!)…I’m a little exhausted. Not All Is Lost I do, however, have a…

Keep Your Net Worth, I Want Your Goals

Keep Your Net Worth, I Want Your Goals

This article may contain affiliate links. Read our disclaimer. I’ve been tracking my net worth since 2016 and in that time it’s gone up and it’s gone down by a little bit and a lot. (Other financial writers look away for one sentence) I think I’ve come to a point where it doesn’t really matter. Perhaps it was from the stock market being in a tizzy the last few months or just a place you get to after a while…

My Money Map 2: This Time It’s Personal (Finance)

My Money Map 2: This Time It’s Personal (Finance)

I just love a good sequel title, don’t you? This isn’t the first time I’ve brought up the idea of a money map. Last year just as this site was getting going I wrote about My Money Map. It is one of my favorite charts I have. Simple but useful. Why Do A Money Map? When I started my journey through personal finance I read a lot of blogs. I finally started getting my act together. We started trimming the…
