Savings Plans

I’ve been a little flippant (?) with my money lately. A little “oh, what’s $20 here, what’s $20 there?” and it’s starting to show. Since almost ALL my bills came out on my last paycheck, and I bought airfare for a trip to see family/a soccer game, I had to transfer some money out of […]
