This week Peach and I traveled to Vermont to celebrate my passage into “mid-twenties.”  Traveling is one of my few “splurge” areas, but I’m always seeking ways to keep some dollars in my wallet.

In the final weeks of my senior year it became clear the 100+ job applications I’d sent to various broadcast news stations and newspapers around the country had been tossed into garbage cans or sent to junk mail. It appeared I would face the same fate as scores of other millennials on graduation day; returning … Continued

Frugal Find: The Roku

   Posted On: May 10, 2013  |    Posted In: Saving  |     Posted by: Broke Millennial®

Happy Friday! From hence forth, Fridays on #Broke Millennial will feature a frugal find. In previous posts I’ve mentioned my great love, the Roku. I’m not sure how other streaming media players stack up, but I’m pretty staunchly team Roku. Cutting cable wasn’t a choice I made proactively. My first roommate owned our TV and … Continued
