I recently wrote a post about personal finance books you should read, and The Millionaire Next Door was on there. It was one of the first personal finance based books I ever read, and I really enjoyed it. It is based on years of research into the lives of millionaires, and is not a book …
As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I’m now 30 weeks pregnant! As the time is flying by, it means we need to get ready for our second child’s arrival. It might seem like ages away, but in reality it isn’t. Factoring in the holidays as well means that we need to get organised!   …
