    One week into January’s spending freeze, and I’m somehow already broke. I know exactly why, of course– You see, my school district does this thing that I HATE where they pay us much earlier than normal “to help with the Christmas expenses.” Normally, I get paid the last day of each month (as …

February Goals

Of course, signing up was the …
