There’s an important date on my calendar – August 23rd. That’s going to be an important day for this blog, me personally, and hopefully you, the readers. I’ll be releasing a book on budgeting. I’m really excited about this book. I’d love to share the title with you, but I keep debating the best title. The book has been getting some great feedback and reviews already, but more details to come.
