At work, we’re starting to register people for our Fall 2017 session of Financial Peace University. It’s a BIG part of our mission at Texoma Community Credit Union, and I’d like to take a minute to tell you about my experience and why I STRONGLY ENCOURAGE you and your significant other to take the class if…

Dave Says.

I’ll admit it. I’m the kind of person that feels like they need to buy something from a salesperson simply because they have spent time “helping” you. I think this is called being a people pleaser. My husband calls it shopoholic. Regardless, it’s hard for me to say no. But this week, I found the…

This past weekend, I sent seven 13-gallon trash bags of clothing to Goodwill. It. Felt. Glorious.

So the hubs and I decided to take the 52-Week Savings Challenge Tiffany blogged about here.

So far, I have to report it has been extremely easy, since we’ve only had…

One Wreath, Five Ways

Holiday decorations are my weakness. And I like to blame it on “being creative” and “artistic” and “don’t tread on my beautiful vision for our house!” but after completed Financial Peace University, I know it’s all really just excuses. So I’ve been almost entirely avoiding Hobby Lobby. And the home decor section of Target. Because…

We pay so much money for entertainment. SO. MUCH. MONEY. I’m talking upwards of $100 a month just to sit on our butts and watch other people do dumb stuff (lookin’ at you, reality television). But is it really necessary? When my husband and I first moved to the Falls almost seven years ago, we…
