Learn how to start a blog

Me!Debt Roundup was created to share a journey toward debt freedom. After four years of fighting debt, I learned a few things about myself, my finances, and my desire for financial freedom.  I have since paid off my debts, built a business, a thriving blog, started making more money, and investing more than I ever have before.  This blog is my journey through it all and the tips and tricks I picked up along the way.  I discuss everything from debt, credit cards, loans, making money, investing, and everything else evolving around finance.  Along with these topics, I also share tools and resources which helped me along the way. I hope it helps you discover your new financial pathway!

Tips for Stay-at-Home Moms Going Back to Work

The other day I was having lunch with my friend Vanessa who recently rejoined the workforce after staying home to raise her kids for the last two and a half years.  She actually wasn’t planning on working again until the kids were old enough to enter kindergarten, but not everything went according to their plan. When Vanessa’s husband was downsized and unable to find a job that paid anywhere near what he had been earning, …

Betterment now has a SEP-IRA account

Betterment Now Offers a SEP-IRA and the Self-Employed Rejoice!

I’m a big fan of Betterment, one of the best robo-advisor companies out there. I got started with Betterment back in 2012 and it’s been a great experience ever since. Not only did I open my Roth IRA there, but I also have a little individual investor account there for an emergency fund. All in all, the process with Betterment was been excellent. You can check out my original Betterment review. Their system allowed me …

How Complacency Has Been Costing Me Money

Ever since stepping onto the other side of debt three years ago, I’ve been on a mission to save money on my “fixed” expenses. I first started with cutting cable and going with the awesome (and inexpensive) Mohu Leaf to get my TV fix when I needed it. My wife and I also kicked Verizon to the curb and laughed at their high prices and stupid contracts. I’ve tried a number of services like Walmart …

Etsy Fans, Get Cash Back Every Time You Shop!

I know some of you reading this are fans of the site Etsy. It’s a pretty cool place where independent entrepreneurs can sell their handcrafted merchandise.  While the platform has changed since they went public, it’s still a great e-commerce platform for those looking to sell their wares. I know my wife has bought a few things off Etsy and they were good purchases. While I haven’t bought anything from there, I know many who …
