- Dear Debt with WHAT IS YOUR EARLIEST MONEY MEMORY? A piggy bank that my uncle bought for me…he took me to the store and let me pick it out. Right after that, my mom took me to the driver’s license office and got me a Texas ID. Then we opened a savings account just in my name. I had a good family to teach me to budget.
- Faithful with a Few with Are You Making All The Money You Can On Your Job? No, I am leaving about $1000 a month on the table that I could be making by writing more for other sites. I am trying to motivate myself now…it’s just hard to actively add another 15+ hours to my work week.

- Three is Plenty with Detailed Financial Picture – February 2014 My heart stopped at that debt number, then I kept reading that it included the mortgage. I just have to keep remembering that homes cost more in other places. Congrats on paying off one of the student loans! Your net worth is about double to ours, so living in a more expensive place seems to work out in the end. :-)
- Funny About Money with Time Management: Where DOES the Time Go, Anyway? In the last week, my time is going towards Netflix and Candy Crush…things I could do with an injured dog in my lap or in the kennel nearby.
