A note on whining
My voice is getting louder
And not declining

Have you been to the drugstore recently? How about a grocery store? Shopped online? Wouldn't you feel better if you knew that some of that money was going to help the world become a better place. Well now it can! Upromise is a free service that helps members save for college by earning 1-25% on qualified every-day spending with America's leading companies nationwide.

Announcing My 529 College Savings Plan

A 529 Plan is an education savings plan operated by a state or educational institution designed to help families set aside funds for future college costs. In most plans, your choice of school is not affected by the state your 529 savings plan is from. Savings from these Plans can be used for tuition, books or housing both nationally and internationally.

With contributions from several family members, my Great Grandmother Virginia especially, I now have my own 529 Plan. If you would ever like to donate any amount to it, you can do so by clicking on the link in this post or at the bottom left of my website. The link will always be there and the contributions are directly deposited into my 529 Plan. Contributions are always deeply appreciated and have the wonderful benefit of being both a perfect gift for any occasion and an investment in my future.
