My colonoscopy is tomorrow, so I’m on the liquid diet right now and in a few hours I start the preparation part. So not looking forward to that. I’ll be away from the computer for the next day or so while I have the procedure and then recover from it, so I’ll leave you with some articles I read this past week that I really enjoyed, in hopes that you do too! See you on the other side, with a very clean colon.

No Debt Plan: Spare Change and Snowflaking – A Way To Boost Your Emergency Fund. This is a cute story, and we have a little change hanging around too that I should gather up and put to use.
No Credit Needed: A Fully Funded Roth IRA at Age 18 Could Net You $3.5 Million. Just at 18. Eeek. Compounding rules.
Uncommon Cents: The Opposite of Snowflaking. Ever wonder where your money goes? I used to, until I realized I did this – all the time. Just keeping track is such a powerful tool.
