…decently and in order

When it comes to work, just as with my budgeting habits I try to stay on top of things since I’ve found being efficient is much better than “flying by the seat of my pants.” A few days ago, I stumbled upon a new to me software titled, Harvest. I must say the title appealed […]

It’s Amazon PrimeDay!

It’s Amazon PrimeDay!  Amazon has been promoting this day for several months.
