Some nights I sit down to write and I just can’t focus. Luckily I had an idea for a quick post on the backburner! As I mentioned back in my Digit review (RIP, although I think I’ve got another month before they start charging me), I’m a fan of savings apps, and the more fun and the easier, the better.

(Spoiler alert: it’s to direct rollover.)
This is going to come a surprise to everyone reading, but it turns out sometimes even I make money mistakes, despite the near-perfection I am (she says, dripping with sarcasm. Because no). Continue reading “To direct rollover or not to direct rollover: that is the question”
I want to take a break for a second from all my personal money stories to talk about hate and intolerance and privilege. I’ve struggled for the last week or so over what to say or if to say anything at all, but when Canadians speak out (thanks, Cait!) and I haven’t, it’s long overdue.

Whew, I’m back from essentially two straight weeks of vacation (oops) and catching up on Real Life, Responsibilities, my workout routine, joyfully returning to a veggie-centric/non-fast food diet, etc. Clearly there’s a lesson to be had here about the need to start queuing up posts for weeks like this where I can’t seem to find time to write, but ahem. I’m back!
Once upon a time way back about 2.5 weeks ago, my sister and I were driving from DC to the beach for our extended family’s annual beach week.
