    The Financial Diet is a (non-boring) blog about personal finance. They talk about money because they know you don't want to.
    By Chelsea Fagan   

    My mom has always been really smart with money. She has worked and saved and spent wisely, always avoiding debt and the pitfalls of credit, always making a great life for her family, always teaching us the value of hard work. She’s flipped homes, held many jobs, done the accounting for a self-employed family, and generally been a mastermind of all things frugal and financially savvy for as long as I can remember.

    And, since it is her birthday tomorrow (Hi mom!), I thought it the perfect opportunity to share some of the hugely important wisdom she’s imparted on me about finances over the years, even if I was too stubborn to listen growing up.
