Guest post: The frugal way to manage your credit cards

Hey everyone! I come to you once again with another guest post, this time on a newer financial blog over at DealsPlus.com. Today, I am writing about credit cards and how to take full advantage of them and all of their benefits.

Money Mozart guest post: Writing Your Retirement Letter

Happy Thursday everyone! I have a treat for you fine people!

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.
