Between parties, gifts, work events, and charities, the holidays can really drain your wallet.   Rather than sitting out on the festivities because you feel like you can’t afford it, start focusing on ways for you to earn more money.

I’ll never forget the first Christmas after my student loans kicked in.   I was living in New York City and returning to Boston to spend the holidays with my family. Money had been tight for months—even the train ticket back home felt like a splurge. I had no idea what gifts I was going to get everyone, and I was petrified that I’d have to put… (Show more)

I am hitting a snag and couldn't think of anywhere else to turn.   My income has gone up due to a promotion at my job. Because of this my health insurance and my student loan… (Show more)

For those who have followed my blogs, you know I like to be savvy with my money—especially as someone who provides for herself. But budgeting can be hard to do as a student with limited money and lots of responsibilities. And if I’m being honest, I’m sort of forgetful as well.   I’m dedicated to becoming more financially responsible this year,… (Show more)

In the last couple of months, we’ve witnessed one natural disaster after another. Hurricanes, wildfires, earthquakes, flooding—you name it. The truth is that these things aren’t a matter of if; they are a matter of when.   I personally went through Hurricane Irma in South Florida. Thankfully, my area didn’t get the worst of it, but it was still… (Show more)

Folks, it’s the time of year to break out the candy corn, the spooky decorations, and the costumes. Well, actually, let’s think twice about that last bit.   I’ve written about this before, but I’m vehemently against spending lots of money and time on Halloween. You have better things to do than freak out over a holiday that lasts all of 24 hours.… (Show more)
