Newest Project

A quick step away from personal finance…

I’m not sure whether I should be happy or disappointed that one of the most popular posts on this site has little to do with personal finances. The fact is that my post about my wife’s entrepreneurial spirit and how it has made living in our house a cute nightmare of epic proportions has been one that I still get emails from those who read it. It seems that anyone who remembers it feels compelled to send me photos of strange Hello Kitty items they have come across and ask how the entire situation is going.
