Hi everyone, 

Hope you’ve had a fantastic week! Can you believe there’s just one more week left in February? 

It’s that time again! I’m excited to share our member of the month with you all. Can I get a drumroll please?

Introducing our member of the month…

Daryll Boothe of Hanover, PA is the member of the month. Thank you for your contributions to our community, Daryll, and congrats! 

There are a lot of great conversations going on in the community this week. 

The Penny Hoarder’s staff writer Nicole Dow asked a great question: does anyone have any rules on what they buy generic over brand name items

To theater or not theater, that is the question! Though this Penny Hoarder is trying to save for her eldest son’s college, she asked whether it’s ok to spend a little extra on tickets for a once-in-a-lifetime theater show. She’s worried it may open the floodgates to frivolous spending. Is it ever ok to spend money on something you love even if it means less in savings that month?

This Penny Hoarder’s car loan is preventing her from getting a mortgage. For those of you who have been there, what advice can you share? 

And, if you’d like some weekend reading… 

For those of you in the retirement, you need to make sure your money stretches so you can enjoy your golden years. These savings tips from our staff writer Nicole Dow may help!
