Time for another "Would you rather" question! (a hard one)

August 19, 2008

So here it is. You’re sitting in a room with all of your closest friends and family, and the mayor of your city singles you out and asks you to come up to the front. He/she tells you that the city has a proposal for you, and you MUST answer it no matter what. The question is: “The city would like to offer you money, […]

iPhones are for Coders, and Sidekicks are for Ballers ;)

August 18, 2008

Wouldn’t you agree? haha…I don’t think i’d ever pick up an iPhone to be honest with ya. And not so much because it rids me of a few benjamins, but because i’m afraid of getting “sucked in” to techno-land! I already have a pretty bad habit of checking email, myspace, my stats on this blog, and everything else now built into our daily routines. So […]

Avoid Overdraft Fees by Tying your Checking to your C/C.

August 15, 2008

This post comes off a pretty pissy experience I had yesterday after my paycheck bounced :( Everything worked itself out and i’m no longer upset/worried/scared of our company going down the tubes, but I did wanna share my thoughts on overdraft protection as it has a lot of value! First of all, did you know that you could even do that? Every bank differs, but […]

I Did It! I Sold The Elusive SUV In Today’s Market :)

August 14, 2008

$18,900 less in debt, and feelin’ good! It wasn’t the easiest thing to do, but it sure was fun reaching the finish line. I put the Toyota Highlander on the market about a month ago, and this was the first hit i got! And to be honest, I almost just deleted it from the inbox because it sounded pretty “scammy”. The guy had emailed me […]

I just found a strange, yet oddly alluring Dollar in my pocket.

August 13, 2008

How freakin’ cool is this thing? You might be saying to yourself, “yeah … uhh … cool man (wtf is that guy on?)”. But if you take a closer look my good friends, you’ll notice quite a few peculiararities here. This ain’t your regular dolla dolla bill, that’s for sure. First, the seal is BLUE! And so are the other normally green markings – pretty […]

Worrying about money never got me very far…so why bother?

August 12, 2008

My brother wrote up a pretty clever “life plan” for himself the other day (which is quite interesting in itself), and under his finances category, he jotted the following: “Stop worrying about money – you’ll get it when you least expect it, and you’ll lose it when you least expect it.” My brother, getting philosophical about money?! I couldn’t believe it! This is the same […]

3 Things You Should Always Keep in Your Wallet (or Purse, or Money Clip)

August 11, 2008

I’ve blogged before about the contents of my money clip (which i LOVE – so much easier to carry around than a wallet!) but every now and then i get on a rant about what I believe people should always keep on them. Your wallet contents aren’t that high on the “oh crap” meter, but it definitely matters. Especially if you’re one who always says […]

Paying $1 to use public bathrooms is good. Paying 25¢ is bad.

August 8, 2008

This is what crossed my mind as i waited in line for lunch yesterday. (How else would i spend 10 minutes of boredom?) I was in a Chipotle/McDonalds combo place here in DC, and I noticed there was only one bathroom. ONE bathroom, per sex, to share between hundreds of guests! I then thought about how to limit it’s use during the rush hour eating […]
