Become Wealthy by Saving Pennies

I think pennies are powerful. I stopped at the bank to deposit a check this morning, and when I returned to my truck I found a penny lying right next to the driver’s side door. Abe has Mojo When pennies show up in my daily routines, I get excited about it. I say “Penny! Thank you, universe!” and I pick it up and put it in my pocket.  I put my found pennies in my Financial Freedom jar at home, affirming that I am on a vibrational level to receive…

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.

Don’t Go Sour on Saving – National Pickle Day

Pucker up! It’s National Pickle Day! That little fruit (yep, it is officially a fruit) that sits quietly in the jar in your refrigerator is a legend. Cleopatra allegedly crunched them. Amerigo Vespucci peddled them. Elvis fried them. A Dutchman named William Beukelz gets the credit for the name “pickle,” although it seems he pickled fish and not cucumbers. But who are we to question? Shakespeare did it for us, writing in The Tempest, ” How camest thou in this pickle?” According to Pickle Packers Intl. Inc., Americans are crazy about pickles,…
