6 Life-Changing Habits that Will Get You Out of Debt

Just as with most big changes, getting out of debt is a lifestyle adjustment.  It’s not something you do in one big moment, it’s not something that’s done once and then over.  Living debt-free is a lifestyle and a mindset… a really, really great lifestyle and mindset.

10 Ways to Add Hygge to Your Life

Hygge – the Danish not-so-easy-to-define word for happiness, coziness, nostalgia, and contentment – is a big part of why Denmark is consistently ranked as one of the happiest places in the world.  We, as Americans, on the other hand,  seem to be on a constant pursuit of happiness, yet don’t rank anywhere close to the Danes.  What gives?
