Buying second hand...

Have you ever bought anything off of Craigslist, Ebay or from a consignment store or garage sale?  I think these places can bring amazing deals to those people willing to look and take a chance, but I'm noticing a growing stigma that buying second hand is "icky" or not classy or something.  Really?

Why work?!?

There are some days, like today, where I have to remind myself why I go to work and leave my beautiful little boy at home.  I wish I could be with him all day every day.  I don't want to miss any moments, any smiles, any new words, or any hugs and kisses.  Wouldn't it be better for my family if I could just stay home?

Lofty Debt-Free goals...

These past two weeks have been a little rough in our house.  I've told you about the car problems, some of them anyway seeing as how the Kia is in the shop AGAIN.

Contentment! defines that as being "mentally or emotionally satisfied with the way things are."  If I were a tattoo person that is what I would need tattooed somewhere, CONTENTMENT.

Stock Market Come On!

Alright, it is payday; each payday I look at how our investments (Roth IRA and 401k) are doing.  Holy cow!

Car Troubles: part 2 (or is it 3!?!)

Well, if you haven't been keeping up with my car troubles here is a link to where it all started.  We did get my car in (and out) of the shop and it is now running beautifully; sadly, the same cannot be said of Chris' Kia.
