Current Choice: My choice is select your own savings

-1

    I love to save money. I used to think it was impossible to lower my electronic rate. You know "they" determine the charge per kilowatt and you pay it no matter what.

You could say it was a "lightbulb" moment for me when I found out about CurrentChoice. With CurrentChoice you can choose who provides your electricity AND you can lower your electric bill hundreds … [Read more...]

Those People

http://www.kellyalisonphotography.com

    This year I am making an effort to not be one of "those people." You know the people that point their finger at you and offer unwanted advice.
