The Toys R Us liquidation has been very upsetting to me and a little hard to process.  I think that I may be in denial about the entire thing and I find myself heading there more often now that I know that it is closing.  Literally, my Toys R Us nostalgia is so high and I find myself buying more toys and spending way too much money in there.

How to Give Back According to Where You Are in Life

In Frugal, Phenomenal

One of the things that I’ve heard people ask is, “If I’m not where I want to be, then how can I give back?”  I think that is a great question, because you don’t have to have Bill Gates money in order to make a difference in someone else’s life.  I’m a big fan of doing what I can to make someone else’s life better.  It doesn’t have to be grand…
