If you take away nothing else from my blog, I really hope these tips will be useful especially for us 20-somethings striving to live comfortably with our 9-5 salaries.

By now, I’ve let all of you in one some of my favorite things. We’ve discussed the ice cream thing and I disclosed my love for coffee. Now that we know we’ve gotten to know each other, I’m ready to really dive in and discuss one of my most guiltiest of pleasures…
