Day 16

Day 15
Every now and again, I hear a story of someone who’s dealing with a massive amount of credit card debt.  It’s always amazed me how folks can get so in-over-their-heads, just making minimum payments and getting absolutely hammered with high interest rates. T...

Day 14
Quick hitters to post or tweet: “Still on the lookout for Sugar-Free Pixie Stix.” “I think I’m having hunger labor pains.” “Carrot cake counts as a vegetable, right?” “Reminder: not every fat lady is pregnant.” “I could sure go for some empty calories right...
