People ask me how I go about figuring out what causes I really believe in and what's the most effective way to support those efforts. You can find a list of what I support specifically here. My general philosophy is to do some real good in the short run, while learning how to scale that up in the long run - to the entire planet in maybe twenty years. Show More Summary
I remember that scorching hot July like it was yesterday. Money was tight, and the measly income I was bringing in barely covered the cost of part-time childcare. There were only two options to get over the hump: quit my job and desperately hope that a better opportunity surfaced, or find ways to make my money stretch. Show More Summary
Dear Liz: My husband recently told me that he has saved many coffee cans full of loose change over the years. When I suggested we might at least roll the change to make it easier to count should we ever need it, he was not interested! I understand he just wants it available in an emergency, but...
As I enter my fifth month of pregnancy with my second baby, the inevitable is happening. Fewer clothes are fitting; and for me, expensive new maternity clothes aren’t an option. It’s hard to pay $30-40 for a dress I’ll only wear for five or six months. Show More Summary

It starts with a whine and a nuzzle of a cold, wet nose against my hand. I groan and roll over. "Not now, buddy. Not ever." But he's persistent -- I need to get out of bed. He needs to be fed, he needs to be walked. He's relying on me. Show More Summary
Everyone knows that iPhones and liquid just don’t get on, and, considering rain killed my iPhone 5c recently, leaving me phoneless for about a month, as it’s the one thing that Apple won’t fix for free, I, along with everyone else, I’m sure, was really hoping the iPhone 6 would be waterproof.

By Travis Brown: It's break time and you deserve some consumable druthers for the quick hiatus.
