Munich, Germany: Beer, Museums, and Lederhosen, Oh My!

In case you're new around here, I recently took my first-ever trip to Europe. I was able to find cheap flights there, which was really nice! After starting in Heidelberg (well, technically Frankfurt, as I landed there), my next stop was Munich, Germany.

Why You Might Not Need a Budget

Hold on there - not so fast. In this post, I'm going to go why a budget may actually not be necessary. But first, some background. I've mentioned it before, but I attended not one, but two book launches for Grant Sabatier's new book, Financial Freedom. Both were…
