Conquering The Keeping Up with Joneses Mindset

The dangers of Keeping Up with Joneses mindset is well documented in the personal finance community and elsewhere. We know we shouldn’t compare our lives to others, but sometimes it seems impossible not to do so.

Blog Roundup: Week of March 17, 2014

I can’t believe how quickly we’re moving through March. It’s been beautiful weather here, so no complaints about the weather but I can complain about SPAM. It’s a little off topic, but we’ve been doing some spring cleaning on the website, and Tanya shared with me that I received nearly 4,000 spam comments in about 7 days.

As I shared previously, most of us were raised in homes where money was a taboo topic and have continued that tradition in our homes. Well, I’m going to dispel the kids don’t care about

I appreciate everyone’s kind comments on The Heavy Purse makeover. It’s a great new look to help launch my upcoming children’s book, The Lemonade Stand.

Debt Does Not Make You a Bad Person

We have lots of conflicting emotions about money. We think it is good, bad, evil and everything in between. We feel guilty for having too much or angry for having so little.

Even worse, the
