Busy Woman Know How to Get Their Money Right & Bodies Tight, Right?

But the holidays seem to bring about an even deeper visceral response to the word and practice of budgeting – as if having and following one either means you don’t have enough money and/or that you are being cheap and frugal. Quite the contrary! (Continue...

How to (Realistically) Save For Your Wedding

Marriage rates may have fallen from its peak in the mid 1980s. But people are still getting hitched to the tune of approximately two million marriages a year according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Since 1970, the cost of getting married has almost doubled to $24,000 – the average cost of a wedding in today’s dollars.
