Federal Reserve cuts another quarter point.

April 30, 2008

Wow… so now my HELOC will be down from 4.80% to 4.55% … Can it get any crazier?From MSNBC (can you tell i read this a lot?): “The central bank is walking a tightrope, trying to jump-start economic growth while also confronting the risk that if it overdoes the credit easing it could make inflation worse down the road.”

Money Mag – Best Credit Card Offers

April 30, 2008

This month’s issue focused around the 100 BEST financial “products/ideas” out there. While i wish i could list all 100 here (some were pretty damn awesome) it wouldn’t make a lotta sense – but you could always pick it up in stores while it’s hot! I did wanna share the credit card section with ya though, as it’s always interesting to see the differences out […]

Time to stock up on those Forever stamps.

April 29, 2008

The first-class price goes up 1 penny on May 12th! It’s not a whole lot, but if you’re anything like me it’s worth picking up a few stacks. It really chaps my hide (who says that anymore?!) when I have to venture out to the post office just to pick up a 1/2/3 cent stamp…i’m not the smartest man around, but i’m pretty sure my […]

It’ll be partying with the other greenbacks in my Emergency Fund.

The hunt is over, i found my George Washington!

April 28, 2008

Have you ever gotten one of these before? I’ve had a few over the years, but was always too lazy to look them. That changed today though. And i have to tell you, it’s a pretty damn good way to blow through some time :) While the site itself was kinda all over the place, the actual content was killer! I say this for two […]

You can check out his post for the gritty details – i just wanted to offer one piece of advice: Mr. Snipes – Please do not forget to […]

You heard that right ladies and gents, my boy just bought some EYE CREAM for $45 greenbacks! And NO this is not some sort of sponsor post in any way. haha….I just find it really silly for a number of reasons :) I won’t go off on him for a) being a DUDE, and b) spending that much money, but instead throw out the facts […]
