35 Day Holiday Savings Challenge

That time of year is right around the corner once again folks, so we need to start thinking holiday savings!

How to Lose 20 Pounds in Four Months on a Budget

At the end of May I decided it was time to make a change. I’ve been meaning to get back into shape and putting it off. I tried some small tactics here and there mostly to make myself feel better about “trying”. I got an expensive membership to a gym one year. The weight didn’t budge.
