Scarborough Research Sent Me $1 Cash in the Mail

My husband was sorting through the mail yesterday, tossing spam and setting bills aside for closer review.

Free Amazon Prime Trials, Student and Mom Accounts

I love Amazon Prime. We’ve had it for a couple years now and the free 2-day shipping, streaming TV and movies, free Kindle eBooks and free streaming music make it well worth the yearly fee for us, but for people on a budget you may not be able to afford the fee. You’re in luck

Happy New Year everyone! So, 2012 is over, and what a crazy year it was. I’m not sure how it passed me by so fast. The last half of the year was very busy for me between a lot of extra work at my day job (including some overtime) plus a side project eating up

Well, it’s 2013 already. Where did all of the time go? It’s time (past time) for my quarterly student loan update. Again, I’m two months behind for the debt updated for October.
