There is no need to walk through life in pain when the people inside the office can relieve it for you…

On Sunday, I went to a bridal shower for my good friend and it was a lot of fun.
I know that I was supposed to post our engagement photos last Wednesday, but I’m still working on finishing that post up, so those will be here either tomorrow or Wednesday…

Monthly Bill Payments vs Yearly Bill PaymentsUnfortunately bill payments are a part of everyday adult life, whether it is your mobile phone bill, your electricity bill or your car insurance bill they all need paying and they are all going to cost you money.

Price matching can be a big money-saver, but you need to be able to navigate the fine print. For example, I saved more than 50 percent recently on a camera memory card purchase when Target matched Amazon’s $16.56 price, knocking down Target’s original price of $34.99.

I’m Not “That” Frugal
Have you ever seen that show “extreme cheapstakes” on the Learning Channel? The premise of the show is featuring people who do extreme things to save money. Obviously, as the title implies, the producers chose the most “extreme” frugalistas they can find to follow around.
I remember watching one episode where a woman in NYC “dumpster dives” (pulls food out of the trash) and serves the “meal” to a friend and his unexpecting girlfriend…

Money Multitasking – Concept and ExecutionI was thinking the other day about how much multitasking that I do on a regular basis.  I constantly work on multiple projects at work due to the nature of my job and that works for me.  I feel a little out of it if I don’t have multiple projects going on all at once.  That being said, I can only handle so much before I become ineffective…
