Best of Weekend Reading: Yakezie Challenge Edition

Welcome to this week’s roundup!

Finally finished writing the exam! I will know my score by the end of January so wish me luck!

Here’s what I posted at Financial Success for Young Adults this week.

1) Controlling Expenses When Moving Out

I recently moved and I have to say that it was one of the most expensive events I’ve experienced. Here are some ways to keep those expenses in check.

2) Common Escrow Problems and How to Fix Them

Once again a great post from our staff writer Shaun on real estate investing. More to come from him if you are interested in getting into real estate.
