Expect The Unexpected

A few weeks ago my dad and little sister, who shall remain nameless, decided to go for a leisurely bike ride in our neighborhood. They were going to enjoy the weather and spend some quality time together. Unfortunately, it did not turn out to be an enjoyable ride because my sister was involved in a hit and run!

My dad not only had to explain the broken mailbox...

Safe Travels

Ahhhh vacation... many of us need one but rarely do we take one. When we do take a break, financial safety may be far from our minds.

Cutting the Cord

How much is your monthly cable or satellite bill? $35? $50? $150? Do you bundle your services? If so, then you are probably paying around $180 a month for cable, internet and phone. That bill comes to $2160 a year. Imagine what you could do with all that money! While it may seem impossible to completely cut out television and internet from our lives, there are ways to pay a little less and save more money. Switching providers or looking for alternatives to cable may be a daunting task, but if the savings are large enough it might not be toO...
