How I slayed my secret money shame and rescued myself from debt.

How I got my financial life together by managing it myself.

How to rebuild your finances after draining your emergency fund.

How to use coupons effectively. Effectively is the key.

Why do your parents push you to be mediocre?  Yes, the author is selling something, but there’s so much truth to this: “Our parents want safety for us, not excellence.”

We can’t always make the best decisions, but we can always make good ones. The psychology of decision making is fascinating.

Fail faster at habits.

The “muffin mansion” is an incredibly cute and colorful camper.

Big design in a small space. 

This is a long quote, but it sums up so much of the negativity we see online.
“I don’t think the vast majority of lifestyle content being written is intended to make anyone feel bad about themselves. Every blog, Pinterest page and Instagram feed is operated (for the most part) by a single person who is excited to have that one place to share ideas and projects they think are inspiring or that they created themselves and are proud of. And if someone actually does live a life where they make their own cupcakes or sew their own curtains or save up to build their dream home, why do we assume that they think they’re better than us or that they have it easier or that they couldn’t possibly be ‘real?'”

And because as a “pear-shaped” woman, this one really rang a bell. Why I don’t believe in dressing for my body type.

Happy almost weekend!
