529s and the New Tax Law 2018
Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. This is just a reminder that “Tax Day Comes”. Tax Day Comes If you haven’t already done your taxes, they’re due by April 15, 2019, unless you’ve filed an extension. However, if you’ve already filed your taxes, like I did mine then you might have a few dollars extra sitting in your bank from a tax refund. I’ve talked about getting a Tax Refund before.

Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays, so today is a short post about “Appliance Woes“. Appliance Woes? Yea. The joys of home ownership continue… I have a long list of items that I need to fix in my house, but then there were things that I had hoped would last a little longer, and so weren’t on my list. These would include my refrigerator, oven, and washer/dryer. They came with the house and they seemed to […]

Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays again. Today I’m going to talk about “Home Ownership“. This post turned out longer than I thought it would be. Home Ownership So I’ve lived at my house for about 2 and half years now. I’d love to tell you that we have remodeled the house and have a new kitchen and new hardwood floors and new everything and it’s my dream house….however… I’d be lying. The truth is that I […]
