Prairie Eco-Thrifter

Over the weekend, during a family visit, I had a conversation with one of my nephews – a thirty something husband, father and CFO of a small company. This is what I would have become had I decided to go ahead and fund my nephews development plans. He is a wanna be entrepreneur and has had several ideas but has so far not acted on any of them. His latest idea would allow him to make money while satisfying a lifestyle change desire.

One time to buy some gift cards for two teenage nephews’ birthdays.

11 Things I learned After Owning a Vacation Property

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

After offering to let a nephew and his family use the condo once, I was frequently afterwards hit up (or hinted at) to allow use, free of charge, multiple times. We purchased a vacation condo in a local resort area in 2006 (yep, right before the crash). My sister-in-law and her husband had one that they used and rented out and indicated that it was doing well. That gave me the idea to start looking around for one too.

US Presidents and Personal Finance

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

His work was continued by his nephew, after a devastating return to a working farm during the civil war after the Confederate army seized it and sold it to someone else. Just because you make it to be the most powerful leader in the world doesn’t mean you end up rich. Some of our presidents didn’t really have it all together on the personal level. I wonder if that could be part of our national debt problem.

Sustainable Gift Giving this Holiday Season

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

We found a toy car made from recycled materials for my young nephew, and I once received a journal made with recycled paper. Now that the holiday season is underway, it’s probably a little difficult to scale back the consumerism. However, it is possible to have a greener Christmas, as well as find gifts that are a little more eco-friendly. As you create your gift list, really think about who’s on it, and what would be meaningful to them.
