By | Living Benefits Show, Storyland | No Comments

I’ve followed ARM on Facebook for some time now, thanks to my wife. Every month, they post something (meme or article) about ‘payday’ that taunts me to no end. It’s almost as if they are looking me in the eye and speaking to my very soul. I am constantly made to evaluate my choices especially regarding saving and investing…which really isn’t a bad thing.
