It’s been pretty eventful and I haven’t had much spare time, but I’ll get back into the swing of things soon. For now, there’s Link Love. And it never disappoints. 🙂

This was my favorite story of the week. (Although I think being “millennials” was irrelevant.) How Four Millennial Sisters Joined Forces To Demolish $182K Debt Within Two Years. I love how they worked together to get rid of their debt. So inspiring.

My finances sucked until I got over my fear of being poor. I need to get over that fear too.

Student loan debt and what presidential candidates are saying about it.

And similarly… 3 college students reveal, What it’s really like to default on your student loans. Gah, so sad.

“Zombie houses” are haunting New Jersey.

This tiny house was built for about $33,000. A little more than I would like to spend, but it’s a really well-laid out home.

This garage mini house is gorgeous. Painted black houses are so hot right now. 🙂

And one from the archives… How to find the best stuff at thrift shops (it’s not just luck!)

Let’s get to the weekend, already!

    The layout of that mini home is fantastic. You would decorate it so well too! I think I could live in that. But I need a comfy chair next to the fireplace for menstruating. And where do I put the kid(s) we might have? And all his landscaping books? (I’d give them away, but I’m not him..). No, not there yet.

      There is a second loft. Kids could sleep there. I think it could be modified to fit a whole family. Maybe a third bed on the “couch” area too.
