New (School) Year Resolutions. At Work And Home, Too

This is quite possibly the worst time of the year, or at least the time of the year filled with the most dread-filled memories. Not only is the summer inching toward its inevitable end, but this is also back-to-school time. The parents out there will vehemently disagree with me on this point – the kids are…

Four Chrome Extensions That'll Save Your Wallet

We’re in a golden age, people. This internet thing (the world wide web, to the layman) looks to have staying power, and everyday something new comes out that makes it that much better. Today, that thing is the Chrome extension. I know I know, it’s not a new concept - they’ve been…

Travel season and summer are usually synonymous with each other. Our minds automatically associate the warmest months of the year with vacation; and even though there is still some time before school kicks off again, that mindset causes us to think the travel season is over.

How To Send Yourself Packing

Packing in a few trips is one of my favorite things to do in summer. You know what’s not so great? Tripping over packing. You know the story: we end up waiting until the last minute, over-packing, under-packing, and no matter how hard we try, we forgo the carry-on and condemn ourselves to baggage…

Save Money On Food By Making It At Home

It’s funny what happens when you first start making a livable wage and can afford to buy things on your own. Doors that you may have never even thought about all of a sudden make themselves known, and open themselves up to you. These aren’t the usual proverbial doors that you hear so…

Make Traveling Less of a Chore

Ask anyone what they would like to do more of and I’m confident that the majority of them would give the same one-word answer: travel. Travel is the thing we aspire to, the thing we plan for, and the thing we can’t wait to embark on. Travel is, for lack of a better…
