Welcome to my money blog!

Yesterday I found my biggest score yet on a single walk: 16 whole cents! Six pennies and one dime, just littered on the ground as if money fell from trees (maybe they did fall from a tree? :)). I was so excited that I not only rushed home to exclaim my exuberance to the wife (she didn’t care), but to also hit up Instagram and […]

Here’s a snapshot of my account: Some of it took more work (hustling on Craigslist) while others didn’t at all (making a few phone calls), but the moral of the story is quite clear by […]
