Should You Use a Grocery Delivery Service? 

How many times have you dragged yourself to the car to go grocery shopping? Yep, we get it. Grocery shopping is one of those chores that very few people enjoy. It’s a love it or hate it scenario.

The thing is, you might not have a problem with actually shopping, it’s just finding the time to do it! That’s why people have turned to grocery delivery services and meal delivery services – to make their lives easier.

Let’s be honest, life is busy, and we are currently living with a generation that craves convenience. We want everything bigger, better, faster, more HD, tastier, more efficient – everything we want; we’re impatient for it to be quicker. Grocery shopping is no different.

We’ve branched out from standard grocery stores with regular cash registers and cashiers. More and more, we see the use of automatic scanners and self-service checkout lines. People are scanning their groceries, packing bags themselves, and bringing them to their cars on their own.

And now we demand grocery delivery services, and we are LOVING it. More and more of these services are popping up nowadays, with stores everywhere getting involved with delivering your groceries right to your kitchen.

13 Lessons Classic Horror Movies Teach Us About Personal Finance

13 Finance Lessons Learned from Horror Movies

I grew up watching horror movies. Which is a bit comical, since I’m pretty much a big chicken.

No joke. If someone jumps out at me from around the corner yelling “Boo!”, I’m gone.

You’ll find me two miles down the road, without a thought of returning until the whole house has been purged of evil spirits.

I don’t know why I consented to watch all of these films. Maybe it was a sign of the times.

Because it seems like the 80’s was the decade of scary movies. Or that could just be my warped recollection.

But family fun night — let’s watch Friday the 13th!

Teenage sleepover — of course, Sleepaway Camp!

And for the annual Halloween party — well, I’d expect nothing less than gathering together to watch our favorite silent masked villain — no, not that one, the other one. Michael Myers, of course.

Watching horror movies was a legit rite of passage when I was a kid.

And it went hand-in-hand with checking under my bed, sleeping with the lights on, and asking my dad to check for monsters in the closet.

And yes, as a full grown adult, I am still afraid of the dark.

Debt Payoff Update: Be Careful What You Wish For

Dandelion Wish Debt Away
 Dandelion — Can’t Wish Debt Away

You Cannot Wish Debt Away

It’s funny, when you spend so much time wishing for something to happen.

Wanting it so badly, it’s all you can think about. And you imagine what life would be like, if you could only accomplish this one goal.

Make this singular change that’ll make everything worth it. Something that will improve your life exponentially, so you can finally enjoy a brighter future.

And then it happens.

But it’s not exactly as you imagined it would be. There’s a twist at the end. A kink in the plan. A curve ball you didn’t see coming.

Or maybe you did see it coming, and chose to ignore it. Ignorance is bliss, isn’t it?

So here is what I’m talking about:  Debt.
