5 Easy Steps to Do (This Week) To Save for Your Dream

Six years ago I moved to California with no job and $500 in my savings account. I think it’s safe to say I was a bit fearless — fearless with my credit card, mostly. Since then I’ve made a concerted effort to spend within my means and save. Fast forward to the present and along with a fully funded emergency fund, retirement and investment accounts, I’ve traveled to 10 countries, am my own boss and have no debt. We all

4 Quick Steps to a Cleaner Home

Of all the little things in life, one of my favorites is a clean house. Unfortunately, that means I need to clean in order to keep it that way. When I was younger this meant spending hours on the weekend sweeping, mopping and scrubbing. As I got older I decided to take back my weekends, and I would clean only when things looked dirty.

Create a Morning That’s Right for You

The other day I was talking with a friend about how I try to drink a glass of water every morning right after I wake up. “It’s kind of a ritual for me,” I said jokingly. She teased me back: “You’ve got a lot of those, don’t you?” And she’s right. I’m a morning ritual kind of gal. I love waking up and having a pattern to follow, something to get my day started. But I wasn’t always like that.

Meal Planning: Four Steps to Saving Money by Cooking At Home

A few years ago my husband and I were thinking of buying a house. Because we lived in one of the most expensive parts of the country, we realized we were going to have to tighten our belts a bit if we wanted to buy what we were really after. Going through our budget, the most obvious cut we could make was to our dining-out expenses. And although we thought it would increase our grocery budget a bit, it turned
