Kylie’s Korner


Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays today. Today I just wanted to talk about me doing “Career Day” at my daughter’s elementary school. Career Day When I initially signed up to do the Career Day for my daughter, I wanted to try to explain the differences between different types of doctors. I wanted to help the children to understand that while we do different things, we’re all still doctors. So I’ll just try to explain how […]

Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. Today we’re going to talk about the constant battle of “Buy the Best” versus “Buy Cheap”. “Buy the Best” versus “Buy Cheap”? Yea. I think this is a constant battle that occurs in everyone’s mind whenever we’re at the store. There are conflicting ideals at work here: When you “Buy the Best” you are saying that buying the more expensive (possibly better) item that will provide better value long term […]
