No ‘Resolutions’ For 2017

I did not set resolutions for 2017, unlike most people did. I found that I usually don’t stick to them. Instead I have some things I know I need to work on. I think about those items and put small plans in place to work on them. There is no budget resolution for example. I know what my budgets are because I track my finances in Mint.

Do We Not Get Paid This Month?

Do we not get paid this month? This was the content of a text I got from a fellow PhD student yesterday. He was hired in the fall semester so he was not familiar with the pay schedules. (If you are not reading this post at www.howisavemoney.net or in your feed reader, it may have been stolen from my site.) Many of my fellow students do not understand how our pay system works. They mistakenly believe we get paid on the first of the...

Free Fresh Balsam Candle!

Today only (31 October 2016) you can get a FREE Fresh Balsam Candle from Bath and Body Works with any purchase. I got the email last night and included a snip of the promotion.

Got Charged Twice Accidentally…Or Did I?

What the credit card company thought happened I got charged twice accidentally or fraudulently…as one of my credit cards alerted me. They sent an email saying there had been two charges for the same amount on the same day. The email did not list the place of the transactions…just the dollar amount.
