Credit Karma recently updated its tax software, and it’s very intuitive. Plus, it’s 100% FREE no matter what your tax filing situation.

✅ Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
MY FAVE BOOK. Seriously. This book has actionable steps at the end of each chapter to help you achieve whatever you want in life. My mind was seriously blown at how good I became at setting out plans for my desires.
⚡️ The Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of America’s Wealthy by Thomas J. Stanley and William D. Danko
I loved learning about habits of millionaires in this book. It’s written in the ’90s but it’s still relevant today.
The Little Common Sense Book of Investing by John C. Bogle
Hands down, the best book on investing I have ever read. Bogle keeps the language simple and the book is only 216 pages.
🤝 How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie
If you ever wanted to be a better conversationalist, you better read this book. I learned so much about communication. This is a must read for everyone!
The Simple Path to Wealth by JL Collins
Highly entertaining and easy to read, I found that JL had simple concepts to help me achieve financial independence using index funds. This book throws complicated retirement paths out the door and gives you a simple path to follow.
BUDGET TRAVEL ACCESSORIES
🎧 BlitzWolf In-Ear Earphones
These in-ear earphones are seriously sound-proof and only $20. I used these to watch movies on a 15-hour flight to Sydney and couldn’t hear any plane noise!
😴 BCOZZY Travel Neck Pillow
This neck pillow actually wraps around the front of your neck so you avoid bobble heading during the flight.
I am currently obsessed with #allthepockets. There’s a privacy pocket in the back for your passport and a pocket specifically for your laptop! Did I mention it’s only $30?!
✈️ TSA-Approved Toiletry Bags
Clear and durable toiletry bags that make it easy to pack travel-sized containers so you can ditch the Ziplock baggy.
Shopping for the best car insurance rate was really daunting for me. Once I figured out the right coverage I needed, I uploaded my policy into Gabi and they told me what was a good rate for me. So much easier than contacting insurance companies individually!
If you love the gym but hate the cost of a gym membership, look no further than FitnessBlender.com! I have been following Daniel and Kelli for years because they offer 500+ free workout videos you can do at home!
Madison Reed At-Home Hair Color Kit
There was a time when I spent $200 on hair color at the salon. Not. Any. More. I tested Madison Reed and love the results. I won’t use anything else. Get $15 off your first order!
Chase is the only credit card company that I use for personal and business expenses. If you’re new to credit cards, check out the Chase Freedom card. There are quarterly cash back incentives, plus you can build up points to use for travel. If you typically put more than $200 per month on a credit card, this option might be good for you.
Chase Sapphire Preferred
If you already have experience using credit cards responsibly, i.e. you pay off your bill in full every month, check out the Chase Sapphire Preferred card. This is a step up from the Freedom card. No fees for using internationally, and earn 2x points on travel and dining. If you typically put more than $1,300 per month on a credit card, this option might be good for you.
Rakuten (formerly Ebates)
You all have heard of Ebates or Rakuten, right? I saw the commercials. I saw happy moms online shopping. What gives? I had to check it out for myself. I have earned more than $250 cashback in the past two years since signing up. You definitely need this extension!
Fetch is the quickest and easiest way to save when you grocery shop. There’s no clipping coupons. Scan your grocery receipts, earn points, and redeem those points for gift cards. Doesn’t take a lot of time out of my day and I’m planning on stockpiling my points and use them for gift cards for next Christmas.
Use code APREWARDS to get an additional 3,000 points. Note: 10,000 points = $10
