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. 😉
Unlike me, some of you may actually be getting a refund this year, so I hope you’ll use this as an opportunity to pay off any outstanding debt (especially those high interest credit cards!) instead of going on a spring shopping spree. On that note, I want to share a little story and officially put Lucky magazine in the time out corner for being a bit naughty in their February 2015 issue.
Let’s talk about side income. Ummm… what’s not to love?
A lot of my posts focus on saving you money in unexpected places because “a dollar saved is a dollar earned,” but the other part of growing your wealth and net worth is generating more income. There are so many ways to generate income on the side that it shouldn’t matter if you’re a 9-to-5 worker bee, a stay-at-home mom, a student, or recently unemployed. Combined with smart budgeting tricks, you can absolutely achieve your financial goals by getting a little creative.
