There are any number of end-of-the-month posts around the blogosphere with themes like what I’m into, what I’m reading and what I learned this month.  I’ve never participated in them, but closing out the month with a wrap-up post does seem like a good idea, so I’m making this my first. And I’m giving it the very clever […]

It’s time for another Found Money Update, and I’m making a change in the way I’m reporting things. Specifically, I’ll no longer be including my income from bookkeeping and blogging. Here’s why: I’ve had a couple of readers tell me that they don’t view those things as found money, and I can see their point. I’ve […]

In January I began posting some of my favorite quotes paired with pictures on the Family CEO Facebook page and you guys really responded! Apparently you like quotes as much as I do.

Happy 4th, Some Housekeeping, and a Found Money Reminder

by Julie July 3, 2014

Happy Thursday and Happy (almost) 4th of July to my US readers. I wanted to pop in to say hi and – for some of you – this may be the first time you have heard from me in a while. That’s because I’ve switched email subscription services, and that shouldn’t interest you at all unless you […]

Since then we’ve paid off almost all debt (we have one mortgage and one unexpected car loan left), and have turned our attention to adding to our savings (both emergency and retirement) and […]
