Leveraging Financial Resources to Your Best Advantage

My Love of Shoes

RandiBoelkes.jpgI love shoes - and am always looking for the next, flashy pair. I am a shoe subscriber, meaning I have a monthly shoe subscription to ShoeDazzle.com. I can’t say that I have actually used it for its main purpose, but I get really great deals off and on throughout the year that are amazing. Just recently I bought a brand new pair of shoes for $12!  I have a daily shoe calendar, and if you have been in my office in Financial Aid, you might have seen a shoe or two on my wall.
