A Bit of Bragging Looks Good on You

It feels funny to brag—uncomfortable, impolite, even obnoxious. Many women I know tend to downplay their success, even among friends. This shrinking-violet stuff is nonsense. Don’t be scared to celebrate your victories out loud. It’s a part of...

Post from Cari: Learning to Spend Wisely

The trajectory is blown to hell. I knew it, but I’m finally saying it out loud. Pre-2008, my husband and I were on that upward path. Based on our education and earnings, we bought a beautiful house, two cars, traveled to far-flung places and...

Dealing with Supermarket Mystery Meat
