Remember my announcement last week of our new Challenge Everything Savings account? Well, this is proof right here of how POWERFUL this idea can be if you really apply yourself. And it doesn’t require any major change to your normal routine either! [In fact, this $6k doesn't even include any expense savings money which is the core of what we'll be personally stashing ourselves. Meaning […]

I was in search of a Flickr photo relating to kids and money for an upcoming Rockstar Finance post, and amidst my scanning I see this pic featured above of these signs promoting “Free Money Day.” Initially I just kept going and tried not getting sucked into the black hole that is the […]

I’m pretty excited about this one today :) I’ve been all about the “missions” lately on this blog and in my life, and while some fade away faster than a scalded dog, others stick around for the long haul and become absolute game changers.

Last week we ran our (tri) annual “Ask J. Money Anything Day,” and 50+ questions later my fingers fell off and we called it a day. I answered everything from blogging, to budgeting, to mortgages, retirement, money mistakes, career, and even what the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow is ;) It was a ton of fun, and if you find yourself bored anytime pop […]

It’s funny that out of all the days to open a new account I choose today – right after my thesis on condensing bank accounts – but I’ve stumbled onto a great way to kick this “challenge everything” mission into higher gear, and I think the benefits will far out shadow the rule break :) If you recall, one of the main areas we’ve been […]
