  1. I agree my baby is getting ready to go to school full time so I am going to be getting back into the work world I will miss blogging but I must get a job stat. I am going to volunteer in August if I don’t have a job by then and see where that leads.

  9. My advice is to be efficient in managing your income, whether small or big, do not splurge, invest half of it if you can and spend only for essential things.
