Hey guys, so….it’s has been a while….but I’ve been working behind the scenes and have missed you all. I’ve been trudging away on some really great projects that I can now finally share with you! A while ago I took to the task of creating my own show for Frugal-nomics. I wanted to show guys and gals that you don’t have to spend a lot to enjoy yourself everyday, on a date….or anytime in between. So I wrote, hosted, produced, and even did some of the editing for a full length episode….and today I’m happy to announce that it’s been picked up by Fubu TV (a subsidiary of the beloved Fubu Clothing Line).
Feel free to check out the Frugal-nomics episode by:

Please feel free to watch it from your devices and share it with your family and friends — we‘re trying to reach 500,000 unique views this month that will be reported by Nielson to DISH & Verizon platforms. More great things to come, can’t wait to share.

Spring is here (sort of) and we have been sloooooowly but surely starting to shed our winter layers, and attempting to reinvent our previous year’s fashion. But let’s just be honest — some of us really need a serious overhaul; but we just don’t have the budget to do it. A problem you say? Not anymore because, I have three easy and cheap solutions for getting more mileage out of your current wardrobe, check them out below.
A new and trendy look could be as close as a statement necklace away, but depending on where you look, some of your more opulent and drool-worthy pieces can run you well over $250. Who has that kind of dough to drop on just one piece? Not many. But there’s no need to get discouraged about your accessory makeover — here are three easy accessorizing tips for upgrading your statement jewelry to give you a whole new look — on a budget.
1. J. Crew Factory. One of my favorite style inspirations is J. Crew — I just LOVE the retailer’s colorful and sleek collegiate wares. But, as one might expect, I have always found that the nicer the piece here, the more expensive the price tag it bears. My solution — if you are willing to wait a season or two for that bracelet you’ve spotted, all you have to do is check out the “factory” tab on their website, and you may be able to grab it for only a fraction of the cost. After all, patience is a virtue for a reason.

$13,369…that’s the amount of credit card debt I was blessed to be able to pay off in the past 11 months. But before I throw up the celebratory confetti I’ll be honest and say that if you had asked me a year ago how long I would have speculated it would have taken me to do this, I probably would have erred on the side of caution and said least a couple years. I mean, after all I had semi-tried before and always had to resort back to using my cards in times of financial emergency….but I’ve never gotten it all paid off.
Don’t get me wrong….the commitment to “knock it all out” was loooooong overdue. It hadn’t been enough for me to calculate the small fortune I’ve forked over to landlords in NYC rent with nothing to show for it….nooooo. It wasn’t until I had paid over $10,000 for a 2-year acting conservatory out of pocket, that the lightbulb went off for me. It was then that I asked myself “if I had it to give someone else….why and the heck couldn’t I do it for myself?” I had had enough of the debt merry-go-round, and I was ready to get off. Who’s ready to come with me?! Continue Reading
