Title: Poor accounting
Post by: Bumperpuff on January 01, 2020, 04:41:29 PM
I was sent this article:
Good for her to live within her means, but the numbers donít add up. There's $8773/year that's not missing from her budget  after you account for income taxes. Iím amazed that someone claiming to be frugal canít say what happened to almost 20% of their income.
