Elsie’s Fashion Challenge – Three Months In!

Sure, I’ve had a few temptations, but overall I’ve been shocked how easy it is to shop pre-owned. Since it’s winter and my personal busy season at work (I’m busting ass finishing things to pr...

Income inequality. Mismanagement of interest rates. The lavish spending ...
