The Five Legal Documents Every Adult Must Have

It was quite possibly the longest day of my life. For more than six hours we sat in front of an attorney who questioned us about everything imaginable.

This was an attorney who specialized in Living Trusts and Estate Planning. And for this misery, we paid $2,500.

The very thick document does include for both of us the five legal documents every adult must have, but still … $2,500.

Good News: You can handle all of this legal document preparation yourself—all five of the must haves docs.

You can download Quicken’s WillMaker Plus 2019, for either Windows or Mac for just $40 (during August). That’s a deal!

So let’s see … $2,500 or $40? That’s what I call a no-brainer decision.

The specific five legal documents plus the Coupon Code you’ll need to get that $40 deal are in today’s post. I’ll see you there … ~ Mary xo

My Hate-Love Relationship with a Cast Iron Skillet

I really don’t know where I got the thing. It may have been a wedding gift. What I know is that I tried to use that cast iron skillet without success and I mean not even a little bit. Food would become hopelessly stuck to it and burned beyond recognition. If it wasn’t turning out charred fare, it was growing a fine coat of rust.

The good news is I rescued it and now more than 40 years later, my favorite skillet and I have quite a love thing going on.

Have a great weekend!

Crash Course for College Freshmen

All around the country, newly-minted high school graduates are heading off to college. They’ll be taking a lot of things with them, but financial literacy is not likely to be one of them.

If I could spend a little time with these awesome students, this is what I would attempt to cram into their heads, then pray that it penetrates their hearts.

Truth be told, it’s not only college freshman who could use a crash course in how to manage money … right?

Happy Tuesday, Everyone. We’re off to Calif., older grandson in tow. Universal Studios Hollywood, here we come!
