Money, Home, and Life Tips and Advice

Money, Home, and Life Tips and Advice.  A little known secret is that Scordo started as a personal finance finance site/blog where we espoused tips on saving money and running a household.   Our how to articles were all informed by our experience growing up in a frugal Italian American household.  Since 2008, we’ve been writing exclusively on the Italian life with a focus on food and recipes, but we still take great pride in our general advice on daily living and cooking!  In turn, here our some of favorite articles from the archives.
