    Just 11 more years, and this baby is all ours! Last week, we received our escrow account statement letter from our mortgage lender. (Don't worry, it gets more interesting. I promise.) For the first time in the four years we've lived here, our escrow amount has gone down. Our monthly payment will...

  • Non-Emergency Uses of Your Emergency Fund

    Photo courtesy of Joyous! Recently, a friend told me that her husband's employer had switched health insurance providers.
