Ack! Winter is here. Not sure about where you are, but winter is in Ontario. I woke up this morning to snow on my car, yikes! Or, the loaner car I’m currently driving as the turbo blew on mine. Super happy that this happened while it’s under warranty. I can only imagine how much money it would cost to fix out of warranty.
Snow means its time for sweaters, warm coats and boots. For today’s Saturday Style I give you some new Fall Additions to my wardrobe from J. Crew and others. Remember my post on driving 120K to get $119 back? Yep, it was a trip to J.Crew. I’ve been finding that clothing is just not the same quality anymore at stores like Gap and Banana Republic. If I want good quality, long wear items I have to spend a bit more at stores like J. Crew. So, when it’s on sale you’re darn right I’m gonna drive to get 25% off!
Financial Wisdom I learned this Week:
For anyone not in the financial blogger community, last weekend was FinCon2013 and almost 500 bloggers were in attendance for the event. So, you can imagine what most of the posts this week were -recaps of FinCon. I’ve decided not to give you any of those but instead, some other interesting articles I found.
Why wasn’t I at FinCon? Simple – money. I hadn’t budgeted to attend any conferences this year so I couldn’t go. I’m hoping I can attend the World Domination Summit and/or FinCon 2014. I’m putting it in the budget for next year!
