March Madness: How Much it Costs to Follow Your Team in the NCAA Tournament

Warning-If you don’t follow NCAA basketball and March Madness, you might be better off reading about something like The A-Z of Saving Money! Today is the start of NCAA March Madness. I have to admit, this year’s tournament is a bit melancholy for me. My beloved Kentucky Wildcats have fallen all the way from being 2012 NCAA champions to not making the tournament this year. One and done really sucks. What 19 year old needs to be playing in the NBA?  I digress. Another reason it sucks is for retailers, because Kentucky Wildcat fans travel in droves and spend all kinds of money. SEC tournament host cities always pray that Kentucky makes the final because the wildcat fans are crazy and will buy anything blue in sight. One of my goals someday is to follow my team through the tournament or at least attend a Final Four. How much would it cost to follow your team in the NCAA tournament?

Free Money Finance March Madness, Please Vote!

One of the most exciting things about blogging is seeing your post on an amazing site like Free Money Finance. If I could be 1/1000 of the blogger that FMF is, that would be a great achievement. I am fortunate that my post about paying off $30,000 in credit card debt has been included in the FMF March Madness tournament of blog posts. However, I am competing against one of my favorite bloggers, Pauline at Reach Financial Independence, with her post about getting her Handyman into debt.  I could say vote for me because Pauline is too smart to get into credit card debt, gets to live in a tropical country, speaks about 40 languages, and has adventures with machetes and wild scorpions all day while March Madness is about the most exciting thing I’ve done all month, but that really makes me sound like a loser. Please, go read both posts and vote for your honest favorite. I am truly honored just be be competing. Best of luck, Pauline!

Eyes on the Dollar 20/20 Roundup #25-Vote For Me!

This week has been a really busy one. This was my one week a month where I work 4 whole days. I know you feel sorry for me, right? Honestly when you get used to working part time, it’s really different to work more. As a result, I wasn’t able to do as much reading as usual, but next week, I’ll only be at work two days, so hopefully I’ll catch up. The foster puppies both went to great homes this week. That was a huge relief. They were super cute, but tons of work. I do miss them a slight bit, but I like the extra half hour of sleep I can get because I don’t have to get the puppies outside!
