AH! $3,000 for a dining room table? I know that these tables are probably much better quality, but that is a lot of money to spend.
Dining room chairs can quickly add up as well. You might find yourself spending $50 or hundreds of dollars per chair…. Read more
The period after high school can be a hard time. Most schools do not teach young adults enough about personal finance. I think there should be a class in high school teaching students how to write a check, pay bills, buy a house, pay for college and so on.

Shopping online has become one of the most popular and powerful ways to purchase new items. Because of this, consumers were also looking for “value” or discounts – just like sales in offline stores. Thankfully you can now use an online coupon in order to get a bigger discount on items you purchase online.

Hello, everyone! Happy November. It is time to bring up a topic that I've been wanting to discuss for a while, should you buy it cheap or expensive?
