8 Things to Know About Saving on Groceries at Aldi

img_0947-1.jpg

This spring I have been trying to not only purge the girls’ closets and rotate through one season and size of clothing for the next, but I’ve been trying to do the same with some of our finances. We aren’t super extravagant, but like many other families we get into spending habits that could probably be reviewed and improved from time to time. I already mentioned how I am being much more diligent about tracking many of our purchases via the…

Today I want to help you out with both of those things. First, know that the…

How to Stretch Your SPG Points for Maximum Value

Westin Cancun

THE STARWOOD AMEX OFFERS REFERENCED BELOW ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE. The limited time increased SPG Amex sign-up bonuses are set to end in just a few days, on April 5, 2017. I have already highlighted numerous reasons to strongly consider getting one or both of these cards by 4/5/17, including that 35,000 bonus SPG points is the highest the sign-up bonuses on these cards have ever gone, and that because of the Marriott merger and resulting uncertainty of this product going forward, there is…

Untitled design (20)

It is full-on spring, which means we are cleaning up our yard, planting the garden, tackling projects that waited patiently all winter, and literally attacking the girls’ closets since at least 50% of what fit when summer ended last year does not fit now that warmer weather is again here to stay. These girls are growing faster than the flowers I can guarantee! All this seasonal change and purging means there is new yard equipment, shoes, shorts, sunglasses and more that…

4 Reasons Why the SPG Business Amex May Be The Smartest Choice

I love using SPG points!

  SPECIFIC STARWOOD AMEX CREDIT CARD OFFERS MENTIONED HERE ARE NO LONGER VALID. Two of my very favorite credit card sign-up bonuses right now are the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express and the Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express. Both have a $0 introductory annual fee the first year (then $95), and both are offering limited time increases to the highest bonus level we have seen until April 5, 2017.
