Eyes on the Dollar 20/20 Roundup #32-Happy Easter

eggGreen (1)You know how things just roll along and then you have one of those weeks when everything happens? I think that was this week for me. I actually worked a bit more than I have been, we had a school program, a birthday party, and I finally closed on the first part of the sale of my business!! Yay! It’s only four months past our original closing date, but who’s counting? Since we still have one more office to go, I’m not done yet, but the next one should be easy compared to this one. We survived the six year old’s birthday party last night, and we have Easter eggs to hunt this weekend. I’ll have a bit more to say about this week’s events later, but needless to say, I have not been the best blogger lately.

This week is spring break for my husband and daughter. We are headed to the Grand Canyon for a couple of days and then to Phoenix for some warm weather and city time. I probably won’t be a very good blogger this week either. I guess I’m on spring break as well.


I am co-hosting 3 giveaways, all of which are ending on the 31st. If you like cash or great prizes, get your entries in!

Fun Search Terms

eyeon yiur dollar and who kim when u finich pay u debt u credit go up-I can see spelling and grammar are lost arts.

doesn’t make sense to pay rent-Better have a good cardboard box handy then.

cream cheese eyes– I do love anything made with cream cheese, but this might be a bit much.

its OK to be rude to poor people– What goes around comes around.

loans up to 30,000 to pay of credit card debt for people with bad credit-What’s wrong with this sentence?

 20/20 Posts of the Week

Problems with Credit Cards-Why It’s So Hard to Get Out From Under Them at Stumble Forward. Chris shows why variable expenses and ease of use can really trip you up. I’ve certainly been there.

Stay at Home Vs Working Mum: Factoring all the Costs at Reach Financial Independence. It’s always a battle of money vs time vs Mommy guilt. I don’t think there is a right or wrong answer.

Follow Me to Wealth! at Krantcents. SMART goals. I love acronyms! It’s nice to read a post from someone who has actually achieved his goals. That makes a real role model in my opinion.

 A Reader’s Response to Can We Afford a Baby? at The Frugal Path. If you are thinking about it and planning already, then probably so.

Cash Rebel vs the Financial Adviser Part II at Cash Rebel. The rebel stumped the adviser so much you’ll never believe what happened.

Happy Easter everyone!!

  1. Congrats on selling the business Kim, that’s quite a milestone. Have fun at the Grand Canyon, it was one of my favorite sites that we visited when I was a kid.
    Also, thanks for the mention. Have a great Easter plus a safe and fun trip.

  2. Lol, Kim, I think your odd search terms take the cake. The first one had tears in my eyes (there’s nothing wrong with them Kim is there :D). Have a great weekend!
