Frugal Find: Don't Play the Lottery

   Posted On: September 20, 2013  |    Posted In: Saving  |     Posted by: Broke Millennial®

Around 11:45 am on Wednesday I did something completely out of character. I played the lottery. Frankly, I blame “FOMO.” An absolutely ridiculous acronym for “Fear of Missing Out.” It all started when three women in my office began discussing the $400 million Powerball lottery.

In the past 24 years, I’ve been incredibly blessed with good health. No major illness and my trips to the hospital were only for sports-related injuries which healed quickly. Plus, I got the badge of honor of being on crutches, twice. Once for a broken fifth metatarsal (broken foot) and the other from a contusion … Continued

Frugal Find: Leftovers

   Posted On: August 16, 2013  |    Posted In: Saving  |     Posted by: Broke Millennial®

In the past year, I’ve developed a certain reputation in my office. My name is Erin (what?! You didn’t know?!) and I am a scavenger. Oh, and I also will handle annihilating cockroaches. It’s not the classiest reputation to have, but it does net me a decent amount of leftovers. Before you get grossed out, … Continued
