Our Walt Disney World vacation

They say that Walt Disney World (Orlando, FL) is the happiest place on earth. I might also say it is the most detailed. Between Disney’s four parks – Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom – what visitors get is something much more than just an amusement park.

The art of staying positive

Last week my family and I spent 5 days at Walt Disney World, known by many to be the happiest place on earth. My two nieces (9 and 6 years old) were there to experience the magic with us adults. Though we all had a ton of fun, it was still interesting how easy it was for the kids, who got to miss a week a school and spend several days at Disney World, to complain about everything that went wrong.

Budget February 2015 ~ The Shortest Month

We spent the entire last week in February in Florida visiting my in-laws and going on an all expenses paid trip to Disney World with Steve's entire side of the family. What this meant for the budget is that we didn't spend a dime of our own money in the last week of February.

Why are people so busy? Slow the hell down!

I remember about 10 years ago I was talking with a co-worker of mine about our out-of-work activities planned for that weekend. I happened to mention to him that I love nights and weekends because they allow me time to finally relax and unwind a bit, focus on some of the simpler things in life, enjoying my time before life literally passes me by. The weekends were my time to relax.

Target Redcard: How does $72,000 in manufactured spending every year sound?

For the moment, Target is home to one of the most profoundly good deals in our economy. Target's no-annual-fee Prepaid Redcard lets customers load funds onto what they call their "Redcard", which is used just like a regular credit card and is accepted anywhere that American Express is.
