Stuff that works – Christmas edition

Ok. I’ll admit it. I’m a bit of a Scrooge about Christmas music.  I think it’s because people start playing it in November these days and I just get sick of it.  It’s probably more than that, because I don’t really remember ever liking any Christmas songs.  Dolly’s Hard Candy Christmas is good; I’ve always…

Stuff that works – Mineral Power!

Most people who know me would be surprised to learn, I love makeup.  Well, not really nice makeup or anything (I’m cheap), but there’s not much I love more than spending 15-20 minutes perusing the beauty aisles of my local drugstore.  When a new “revolutionary” lip gloss comes out, I. Must. Have. It.  My makeup…

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on work clothes from a clearance sale. I feel only slightly guilty because I really needed the items and they we’re deeply discounted.  I got three skirts, a jacket and a blouse for under $100.  Not bad, I say. 2. Today I feel  pretty good towards…

MPP has taken a hiatus, so I’m on my own for this week’s  Money Check Up.  (I also found of she’s only 25 which makes me feel incredible old and impossibly immature about my financial habits. But she got herself out of $13,000 worth of debt and saved another $10,000 so I just need to…

I am an avid blog reader

I loved to read blogs. I love to write. I love to facebook and I love to tweet. Why, oh why can I not find 15 minutes a week to update my freaking blog?  I’m not THAT busy.  Although, I have been really busy.  (I just typed “busty”, heh. I guess I’m that too.) We…
