A Savings Account for the Dogs….Wait…What?
June 19, 2019
We have been married for nearly 33 years and have never NOT had a dog. We started out with a black lab, then went to miniature schnauzers when the kids were little. Currently we have two of them and we treat them like our own children (admit it, you do too). Jorge and Oliver rely on us to take care of their needs and provide all the love we can give them, but having family pets does not come cheap.
Birthdays, Graduations & Anniversaries…Oh My!
June 12, 2019
We have a saying in our family that we are “in the clear” once we make it to July 1st. You see, it begins in May with three birthdays and Mother’s Day followed closely in June with yet another birthday, Father’s Day and our anniversary. To add to it, this year we had five graduations to celebrate! Gift-giving is not easy to accomplish when you are trying to save money, so Jeff and I sat down to decide how to tackle this feat.
