Read this post in the privacy of your own home or else you’ll have to make up stories about how your allergies are killing you.

This song gave me the chills. I heard it on Mad Men.

I’ve always done this and now it’s considered to be in vogue.

Got $300,000? That’ll be enough to pay for $5 meals when you retire in 20 years.

SEVENTEEN.

So much cuteness!!!!

EIGHTEEN.

These made my head hurt.

Listen up people, the English language may not be strict like the French one, but it is still important to know things like the difference between there, their and they’re or you’re and your.

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using TheBudgetingTool.com. I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    Cringing. Just cringing at those selfies. I am not into shaming people for selfies generally but how does anyone do that with their kids…??

      I know right? A BOOK. Not too hard. OPEN ONE. 🙂

      Yes, they look like outfits made out of petals that I’d actually wear in real life.

    Oh my goodnesss…five and eighteen were just downright disturbing. For someone who’s wanted kids all her life and has not had one yet, five made me angry…unbelievable. You get to have a kid and you’re taking naked selfies while your child is screaming or holding your boobs. WTF? That’s really teaching your kid about life..really people?
    And eighteen…well, I’m feeling rather smart right now. LOL! 🙂

      Exactly why I shared them. The Mommy Selfies were the most disturbing.

    I love that procrastination quote, and the petals turned into dresses!! Beautiful! Also, The Oatmeal has some of the funniest examples of how to properly use they’re, their, there and you’re, your. Come on… it’s not that hard :-/ You’re = YOU ARE.

      If people would just SPELL IT OUT it would make a world of a difference. Then they just need to figure out the difference between THEIR and THERE. 🙂

    I love taking selfie but NO WAY, I won’t pose like that! How come those mothers had a gut to pose like that?

      It’s called “advertising”.. or “blogging”. 😉
