Okay, FINE, so I’m not in Hawaii and it’s not night time. That’s just some wishful thinking on my part.

The good news is that summer is finally here again, I may be taking a vacation next month to somewhere tropically delightful, and I can generally get away with wearing bright colors, splashy patterns and lots of tropical details and no one can say a word! Seriously, though, why can’t we wear white and give ourselves brain freezes from frosty cold piña coladas with paper umbrellas after Labor Day?

Oh, the mysteries of fashion etiquette…! Regardless, I still have to stay on budget whether I’m breaking the rules or making them, so thankfully I’ve added a new online boutique to my rotation. As you saw last week, Tobi has some really fun styles available at great prices, plus I am a HUGE fan of their free shipping and free returns policy.

Unfortunately my Hawaiian Nights Bodycon Dress was so popular that it’s currently sold out, but Tobi has lots of other tropical treats for your closet.

Reduce Your Car Insurance Premium like a Boss (aka Why I Love Metromile)

Wednesday, May 25, 2016 1 , , ,


Over the last couple of years I’ve shown you how to make more money through side jobs, save money on organic and non-GMO groceries, and even pin down the basics of your monthly household budget.

Today I want to draw your attention to the money you may be overpaying when it comes to your car insurance. As always, I base this on my own personal experience and how much money I’ve managed to save over the years:

Spring always brings a mix of elements, doesn’t it? Torrential downpours and gray skies wash away all the winter grit and then the world suddenly bursts to life again in a spectrum of colors and textures and sweet smells. And pollen too, but hey, let’s try to keep it positive.

It’s also the time of year we all know and love: TAX SEASON!

Yes, I know that most people dislike taxes and dread tax time, but I’ve grown to enjoy that tax season provides a perfect opportunity to redeem myself financially for the year ahead. And if you guessed that I’m about to discourage you from blowing your tax return dollars on a new pair of shoes or some other frivolity, then you guessed correctly. 😉
