It’s Friday, and since we celebrated International Women’s Day on Wednesday I’d like to take this opportunity to point my exceptional MMM readers in the direction of some fabulous finance lady bloggers! Due to the extremely ridiculous amount of talent out there by my fellow female bloggers, this is in no way an exhaustive list, rather [...]

The year was 2006 and my life was in turmoil. I was breaking up with my long-term boyfriend and leaving our big suburban house with the in-ground pool to move into an empty apartment with 4 lawn chairs and my 2 cats. Up until that moment, I had everything – minus a great relationship. On top [...]

Today I wanted to veer off the well-trodden trail of personal finance and write a kick-in-the-@$$ motivational post.
