The Propane Tank Was Filled & No One Panicked

Yesterday the propane tank was filled and no one panicked. We live in a rural area (not for much longer, but the big move is a whole different story). Our forced air furnace runs on propane and several times a year the tanks need to be filled. We have a big tank that feeds our […]

Week 3, 4 & 5 – $12 Gets You on Track

September’s Already Half Over – A Saving Nudge

Well here we are, mid way through September already. Am I nuts, or is this time going faster and faster? Christmas decorations are popping up in stores (Hobby Lobby, JoAnn’s, etc…) and admittedly I have already started picking up a few holiday gifts. When I did I used the Capital One debit card (NOT a […]
