All Things Personal Finance


I love Mint and have been using it for almost 5 years now. It helps me keep an eye on the overall progress of my financial goals. Check it out!

Credit Karma

Another tool I use that pairs nicely with Mint is Credit Karma. This helps me keep track of my credit score as well as all debt accounts in one place. When you are looking for new credit cards, this is the first place I look for cards with great sign up bonuses. You don’t have to use Credit Karma, but if you aren’t using a credit score tracker, you should be!

Prefer Reading? Me too!

Me too! I love curling up in my over sized chair with the dog and just getting lost in a good book. These days, I mostly read to learn new skills, but occasionally read some non-fiction. Check out my favorites here!

Can’t forget the Dog! (and Cat)

Give your pup the best dog food you can!

Mika is my life and I try to give her the best I can. I think most AWESOME pet parents do too. When I’m not trying to cut down on costs to reach my financial goals, I love subscribing to The Farmer’s Dog and supplementing Mika’s dry food with it. She loves it. It’s easy for me. And that makes me happy.

What breed is your dog?

I would absolutely recommend the Embark Dog DNA Test Kit. If you are wondering what breed your pup may be, I would get her tested ASAP! Embark’s process was simple, easy to follow, with lots of updates along the way. The only downside is that you have to have patience – something we lack in an instant gratification world! I felt like it was the longest wait ever to get her results but it was soooooo worth it. Check Embark out!

I hope you found some of these resources helpful. Check back for updates as I’ll be adding to the list and paring down things I might not use any longer.
