50+ Mini-Tasks to Improve Your Finances One Step at a Time “New Year’s Resolutions: Every new year, we set up big audacious goals that we want to accomplish in the new year.

12 Budget Friendly Health Tips “There’s a common misconception that in order to make healthy choices in your life, you need to have money. After all, buying organic food, gym memberships, vitamins, and other health and fitness items will cost you more than you think.

When we first started paying off our debt, we were not overly concerned with out various interest rates. Instead, we focused on attacking our various debt balances, in hopes of quickly paying off all of our accounts.” No Credit Needed

Preparing for Your Demise “Okay, not a very cheery title, but the fact that death is a bummer subject is the problem.

  1. We just had a sales tax increase in California due to our idiot voters. I made sure that my major purchases were completed prior to the new law coming into effect. I have resolved to make any further purchases in secondary markets, i.e. craigslist.com. With other unavoidable tax increases being implemented I would be giving myself an additional 8% discount that would offset those taxes. The more they tax the less I spend.
