Smart Reasons to Save, Use and Invest Money

Yakezie Carnival Newbie Edition Spillover

Here are a few posts from the Yakezie Carnival Newbie Edition that didn’t make the initial carnival because I was on vacation.

Sometimes errors to the spreadsheet happens and this one was caused by me being out of town with limited access to internet resources.
