We're livin' it up on the U.P. - that's Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Punkie is 6 and LOVED Kindergarten! Isaboo is 2 and she's a smiley whirl wind. We also call her Busy-Isi. This year we welcomed little Lorenzo to our family.

Life is great!

Easy Concept? Not For MANY...

I love this SNL skit. It's true. I really know there are people out there that just don't get it. But, I also know there are people out there that just don't want to get it...they know better but they still buy things they cannot afford. Blows my mind.

That said, we're not perfect with our money. I'm not trying to say we are...but really...this is an easy concept. Money buys things...not plastic....not paper....MONEY!

So, order your copy of "Don't Buy Stuff You CANNOT Afford." And don't forget its follow-up, "Seriously! If You Don't Have The Money Don't Buy It." And subscribe to "Stop Buying Stuff Magazine."

They should write another book, "Don't Buy A House You Cannot Afford." Then maybe there wouldn't have been so much BAILOUT money...that generations and generations will be paying back.

This is one of my favorites. "Where do you get this "saved money"?

Ha! That's funny! I love when people think it's so weird and impossible that Adam and I have no debt -- aside from our mortgage. I'm like, hello! Look at our furniture -- it's ALL hand-me-down. Does it look like we're going into debt for stuff? lol!
