I am really happy to see this weekend. It seems like my whole family has been battling one illness or another for a few weeks now, but I hope we’re all on the mend. My daughter is in spring cleaning mode, as she labeled all of our bathroom drawers this week!
I’m almost afraid to put it in writing, but it looks like the first part of my business sale is set to close next Friday the 29th, which also happens to be my daughter’s birthday. I want to do a few posts about the experience of selling a business, but I’m not sure if that would be interesting or helpful to my readers. Let me know if you want to hear more about it or if that would bore you to tears. I also have a couple of posts coming up next week about a secret real estate deal that I have been keeping from you. You’ll have to check back Monday if you don’t die of curiosity first.
Ebook is Launched!
I’m proud to have been an co-author of a new ebook that was launched this week. You can check out “The A-Z of Saving Money” here or on Amazon. If you’ve read it and could post a review on Amazon, I’ll owe you big time.
I did a guest post this week called Forget Keeping up with the Joneses, I Became One at I Heart Budgets.

20/20 Posts of the Week
It’s really hard to choose just five, but I think it actually works better than a longer list. While picking 5 20/20 posts, there was one that really stuck out this week as my absolute favorite. It will be the 20/15 post. (Like Alexa ranking, the lower the bottom number, the better!)
