Spending & Saving – Our Road Trip to Florida

School Vacation = Costly Flights

Ashley and I are fortunate enough to have a few weeks off throughout the year. Of course, because we are both in education, our vacation weeks happen at the same time as every other public school in Massachusetts.

In some ways, I feel like all of us are at least somewhat addicted to technology. There are very few people that I know that can consistently avoid the lure of their cell phones, social media, and cable television. And age doesn’t matter either.

Addiction can be seen in the teenager with his head buried in his smartphone, sending hundreds of snaps on Snapchat.

Credit Card Hacking – The Easy Way

How we plan to make over $1,500 this year through simple credit card hacking.

Minimalism has had such a positive influence in my life, so I figured why not adopt a more minimalist approach to my credit card hacking as well. Could I still reap the benefits of credit card hacking without putting in all of the time and effort? The answer is yes. Credit card hacking can be easy.
