“A Story of a Fuck Off Fund”
By: PAULETTE PERHACH
Published on: The Billfold
I chose this piece because it touches on the idea of a “fuck off fund”. For those unfamiliar with a “fuck off find”, it’s essentially a savings fund with the purpose of aiding in the self-empowerment that you totally will need in the case of a life, job or relationship meltdown. In other words, when shit hits the fan in those categories. That job you hate? Fuck it with a “fuck off fund.” Your relationship with the person who puts in half of their income into your apartment ends? Fuck it with a “fuck off fund.” You get the gist of it all.
BOOKMARK The Billfold for more takes on money matters. You’ll be happy you did.

I chose this piece because at some point we have to make decisions about what we want to spend our money on. Most of us probably have multiple subscription services. I know I do!

By: ONICIA MULLER
Published on: Onicia’s website
This isn’t just a post for writers and freelancers! Any professional should take into account their grammar. Have you considered purchasing Grammarly? Onicia provides us with a quick review on her experience with the software. I should add: I have yet to make a choice of whether I’ll be purchasing it. However, the information is still worth reading and then considering.
I hope you find the above pieces informative. Do you have a piece you think is worth sharing with other folks interested in money talk? You can always share with me on Twitter, IG, Facebook or via the comments here. I’m always looking for more things to read and share with people!
