A fun way to earn some extra cash is to find PAID MARKET RESEARCH work. These jobs come about randomly, but you can sock the money away in a sinking fund rather than relying on it for regular income. That will help you get ahead of bills!

First year for making one myself Jamie! I followed Rhe Drummond's (the pioneer woman) recipe. I already want to change it up but it was pretty good. At first I thought it was expensive but then I realized a lot of the ingredients were left over when I was done. Next year Jamie!

Are you expecting some TAX MONEY this year? Let me explain a little about your taxes so you can get the most for your money. Just promise me you won't get an anticipation loan. If you put a good portion of this towards your emergency or sinking funds, you'll be that much closer to done with the challenge! #taxes
Make the most of your tax money, both while filing and all year long. Don't pay more than you have to, and utilize your refund the best way possible.
