    What caught my eye was NOT your old blue couch but the Marquette University throw on it. Have you spent part of your life in Michigan? :)

    Enjoyable post–it is amazing what you can do when you make your financial priorities and stick to them.


    1. I’m glad it was the throw not the couch that caught your eye! We went to college at Marquette which is in Milwaukee, WI. But that’s COLD country up there, so I moved back home to Portland, and Jeff came along for the ride :-) Thanks for reading! Enjoy your week or your weekend.


  3. Love the idea of a gazingus. I think I bought one yesterday! I can testify that earning air miles by purchasing everything with a credit card absolutely works. It’s how we took our twins and their older sister to Europe twice in 3 years. Great tips!

    1. Well, everyone needs a good gazingus every once in a while! And a good trip to Europe! Cheers.


    1. We’ll check out those books you mentioned and your blog post. Thanks! ~Erin and Jeff
