My fiancé and I made out like bandits this Christmas - I’m not sure if its because everyone knows exactly how broke we are due to this site, or if this was just the year that everyone decided to give money in lieu of other gifts, but between the two of us we ended up […]
It’s not too late to enter the BankerGirl logo contest!
So far I have received six entries, the majority of which are concepts instead of finished products, which is just fine with me (that’s the great thing about marrying a graphic designer). I already have some pretty neato proposals, but I’d love to see more.
Please pitch […]

Wishing you and yours a safe and Merry Christmas!

I never got around to my Christmas shopping, however, being bed-ridden did give me the opportunity to watch several movies I’ve been meaning to get to. My partner worked both Saturday and Sunday, […]
I have a “poor man’s trust” on all of my bank accounts. Not many banks promote this feature because it means processing an extra piece or two of paperwork, but every financial institution I’ve ever worked for (and I’ve worked for two large national financial institutions and two small community banks) have this option available.
I started this blog because I was in trouble with debt and wanted to tell my story while adding some accountability to my financial life. Yesterday marked the completion of my first month as a blogger. It’s incredible how much I’ve learned about this meduim in the past 30 days. The following is a list of things […]
Every Friday I link to a few of the best finance articles on the Interweb. Here are my picks for the week:
