My Favorite Posts From The Last 3 Years

charlie_imageSo in the three and a half years that Aaron and I have been writing for we've compiled a number of posts. 690 posts to be exact! In that time I've used the blog to stretch me personally, and hopefully help others along the way. Doing so wasn't always easy, but I can say that my personal finances are better for it.

In a way, the blog has become an accountability partner. A way for me to practice what I preach, and help my family save a few dollars along the way.

With that said, I decided to dig up my top 10 posts from the last few years. Enjoy!
