Once again I’ve put together a list of affordable gift ideas to help you prep for an extra special Father’s Day on June 19th. Everything listed is well under $100, so you can impress dear old dad without getting lectured about your credit card bill afterwards.

This year’s round up features gifts that appeal to dapper dads as well as foodie fathers. For example, he might really enjoy a monthly subscription to Birchbox’s Grooming Box. Each one contains a range of top-shelf grooming samples—from heritage shave creams to woodsy cologne—plus a full-size product like a gadget, bar tool, or stylish accessory.

At just $20/month you could send him Grooming Boxes all summer long and still have money left over for some Mike’s Hot Honey (seriously, this stuff goes GREAT drizzled onto pizza and fried chicken) or even his favorite craft beer and artisanal nibbles delivered in style from BeerGifts.com.

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. 😉

I apologize that I haven’t had the time to shoot as many budget-friendly fashion looks in the last couple of months. I do realize that some of you really enjoy that content so today I’m sharing some makeup and accessory inspiration.

In my opinion, bold accessories and even a great statement lipstick can completely transform the look of an otherwise understated outfit (like this unremarkable black top paired with fitted black denim, for example).
