One of the best $300 items we’ve ever bought – a new stove!

July 31, 2008

Woohoo – we’re modernized! Not only is this one hella sexy stove, but it came with a hardcore discount. (did you ever doubt?) This is one of those times where i absolutely LOVE home ownership because you can do whatever your heart desires. Can you imagine if we were renting and I asked our landlord to upgrade appliances based on the way they look? shoooooooooot. […]

Words of wisdom from the queen of finance herself – Suze Orman (who seems to be popping up everywhere these days!)

My Toyota Highlander is up For Sale, and Everyone’s hatin’

July 29, 2008

Man, this time last year it would have been sold instantly! Leather, heated seats, 3rd row, 6-cd changer, all luxury man – it’s a great buy. But here we are, one year later and it’s already got a bad rap.

So in honor of it, I am starting a page where I detail all of the items I’ve sold in order to keep the juice flowing and full of life. If I have a […]

A Personal Thank You to Great Customer Service out There.

July 24, 2008

Oooooooh how I love me some excellent customer service! Seriously, in a consumer driven society shouldn’t we be getting this all the freakin’ time anyways? (the answer is Yes). Being a Customer Service Manager myself, I understand and appreciate the role the customer plays – without them, I wouldn’t be sitting here right now typing away on my work’s computer ;) Shhhh… But the sad […]
