The following is a blog post I originally published 10 years ago on New Year’s Day, 2009. It was a great start to my New Year because it brought me into contact with Chester Greenhalgh, T-Bucket budget building guru. At the time, Chester had disappeared from the T-Bucket world for over 10 years. Nobody could … Read more
