I'm beyond excited to announce the Virtual Pug Run is SOLD OUT thanks to your support of the cause! I was so nervous we wouldn't meet our goal this year, but you all blew me away. Thank you!

I'm taking another leap of faith by relaunching my social media consulting biz, too! It's been a year of crazy ideas but I wouldn't have it any other way.

This year has been full of lessons.  If you're not making choices about your life, someone else will make them for you, and If you aren't living and launching on your own terms, you're letting some...

Common financial advice says to give up the gym membership, dining out, and getting coffee everyday. But is it really necessary for everyone? Here's how to evaluate what's frugal to YOU.

Zina here, offering up some of my favorite frugality tenets to debunk!  So often, basic personal finance advice advises people to get rid of gym memberships or Starbucks, but when is something not ...

There's only one week left until registration closes for the Virtual Pug Run, and we still need 135 runners! Please help out and spread the word if you love pugs as much as we do. All proceeds go to the Northern Illinois Pug Rescue.

Pugs are sort of crazy. They snort, wheeze, have curly little tails and squished little faces. I adore them.  Even crazier than pugs themselves, is getting pug lovers together for a Virtual Pug Run...

Thinking about moving? Don't do it without a plan! It's usually much more expensive than you anticipate. Here's how to plan for a move one year to one month out so you can prepare your budget.

This is a great post from contributor, Zina.  I've moved across the country 3 times and wish I'd had this guide to help me plan better!   A week ago, I moved 1,000 miles to Denver, Colorado, along ...

I always make it a point to give back as often as I can, even if that means contributing $1 or $5 here and there. Why? Because it opens us up to new blessings. Someday, that could be us asking for help. Take the time to care and show compassion.

#givingback  
Asking for help is difficult.  It really is.  As a finance blogger, I've advocated that we should always be prepared for financial hardships that come our way- to build an emergency fund and live f...

Frustrated with a few clothes you really love, but don't fit well? Instead of letting them waste closet space, why not get them tailored? It's not as expensive as you might think, and it helps you feel good about yourself!

#fashion  
Zina here, and I'm going to make the case that the best investment you can make in yourself and a great wardrobe is to spend a few extra dollars in going to a great tailor.  How many pants or jacke...

It's so important not to compare your beginning to someone else's middle. If you do, you're missing the entire story. A reader recently commented saying seeing my travels documented on the blog made her sad about her life. That's never been my intention. I struggled for years to get to this point. Here's a look behind the curtain.

#frugality  
This is my mantra.  Don't compare your behind the scenes to someone's highlight reel...#truth. What makes me different than "frugality experts," is that I'm not always on point, and I don't know if...
