Backup Plans for Dragons

Sometimes you can be prepared to slay a dragon, but sometimes the dragon still wins. This is why backups are good to have in place, because sometimes things don’t work out. Morale of today’s post: don’t put all your eggs in one basket.

Driving for deals

Sometimes the best deals you have to look for. My husband and I have rendezvoused with people late a night, many hours away, and/or right down the street to get awesome findings.
