My Mama always told me that two of the happiest times are when you buy something and then once again when you sell that item. With the holidays just around the corner we’ll be likely be doing a bit of shopping. Shortly afterwards the bills will follow and they’ll need to be paid. I like to take advantage of resale sites to help pay those bills off by unloading things we no longer use or need, and cleaning out clutter.
Congratulations graduate! You’ve just graduated college, which is a huge step for any young adult, and often a challenging one. You are finally on your way to becoming the responsible man or woman you want to be. This can seem intimidating at first – stepping into the real world is a big deal. Most graduates have student loans to pay off in addition to supporting themselves as well as investing into your future.
There is nothing cheap about a higher education. College life is very expensive when you add the cost of tuition, books, housing and other necessities together. On top of having to take out students loans, some parents are forced to apply for private and/or parents loans. Jason is in his third year of college and I want him to focus on studying. We are always exploring new ways help him save money without over working himself.

What many people don’t like to talk about is the one thing that is hurting them the most. It’s too embarrassing and its considered a family secret, so its kept quietly hidden in the family.
