Important things to remember on your way to financial freedom.

I have one TV program addiction. It doesn’t have anything to do with housewives or forensic detectives, or otherworldly beings. Not that there is anything wrong with enjoying and being dedicated to watching those programs.  I’m just not much of a TV watcher – I pulled the plug on cable a long time ago. Except for CBS Sunday Morning. The news magazine show debuted in 1979, and I am pretty sure I watched the very first one. Yes, I am that old. Charles Kurault hosted the show, starting the first…

Honoring veterans on your road to wealth.

  I can’t let today pass without saying thank you to those who have offered service, and call for peace on all levels. Our lives are beautiful and unpredictable, and we all have been touched by someone who has selflessly put himself or herself on the line to protect others. The best way we can honor them is by practicing peace. Many of our veterans come back after their tours of duty to find a mountain of debt at home. Although the post-9/11 GI Bill was passed in 2008, approximately 40%…

5 sources to help you stay frugal.

    Friday was my last day at Job #3. Although it didn’t last as long as I had originally planned, I am happy it has ended. I have found that 17-hour work days leave little time for cleaning my home, laundry, eating, sleeping, and comprehending the world around me. I was a living zombie the last few weeks. But I  banked some money by practicing frugal habits, and Job #3 paychecks were directly deposited into my Financial Freedom account. I could have used some of this money to pay…

When the freezer door opens, a muffin earns its wings.

    Somehow, the freezer part of my refrigerator popped open yesterday. I noticed it a few hours later – after several items had thawed. So instead of sending it to compost heaven – or trying to eat my way through it all –  I decided to make muffins out of several cups of thawed squash and pumpkin puree, currants, and a handful of mixed berries. I turned to one of my old favorite frugal muffin recipes, from Amy Dacyczyn’s Tightwad Gazette. It really isn’t a recipe; it is a tutorial on…
