Money Management The "Eleven" : The Fixer Upper 

Why remodeling has to wait until I’m off the ledge

I have an amazing life. So many exciting adventures have crossed my path (and if you don’t believe me, take some time to read my oldest blog, TrusttheUniverse.com), and I am grateful for all of them. All of them! The business of blogging has forced me to share things I normally keep to myself. But I also know, through my work as an optimism guide and motivational coach, that our stories help others learn as well.     At the big house If you are a regular Cash Crone reader,…

Have a great holiday season – and still stay on budget

Holidays can sabotage a budget. When I was a young single mother with two small sons, I came home after work one evening a few days before Christmas to find that someone had broken into my home.

Jetpack Dreams – a new budget envelope!

I still want a jetpack. Today’s NaBloPoMo blog prompt sent me back to the 60s. The prompt asked this question: Pretending you have the expertise to make the product a reality, what do you wish you could invent? I didn’t want to invent one, but I dreamed of having a personal jetpack. As a child, I watched the Jetsons. I believed, deep in my heart that I would see the day when we all had cute little space cars that turned into briefcases, and robots that helped us with our homework. And…
