I previously wrote about the danger of financial assumptions. There was one financial assumption that I didn't touch upon in that blog post and that is the assumption that if we bury our heads in the sand long enough and just keep going our finances will take care of themselves.

Making this video highlighted the joyous fact that we… Continue reading Haul: How we spent our Christmas money
