We Were (Cash) Poor for a Month, and it was Terrifying

I've been very fortunate to never have to worry about money in my life.

Actual Money Saving Software: Keepa

It seems like every week there's a new app coming out that will be our financial salvation, and all the personal finance blogs can't wait to tell us about them (often because they get kickbacks from the company). Unfortunately, I've never found any of these apps particularly useful. Most of them are super gimmicky and don't actually save you any money. I'm also tired of creating new accounts with anyone, especially ones that have my financial information.

Now that' I'm done being a downer, I want to tell you about an awesome piece of software that has actually saved me a lot of money. It's called Keepa, and it's actually a browser extension.
