Wasps in Your Wallet?
Karl and Heather
We hate wasps! Every spring and summer we put up our best defenses against the flying menaces, but somehow they still find ways to nest inside of our garage, fence posts and window sills.

Where did all my money go???
Jenniffer
I’ve been doing pretty good with my budget since starting Project Money. I’ve got money going into my 10 (yes, 10!) savings accounts as soon as my paycheck posts. The left over money goes to bills and “extras” like gas, groceries and the occasional Starbucks. Like the quiz from my last blog noted, I’m coasting along.
