3 Tax Tips you can still do before ’08 ends! (they’re very sexy)

November 28, 2008

I got an email the other day from a Turbo Tax person (this is *not* a sponsored/paid article btw), and it had some pretty good tax tips up in thurrr. I figured i’d share them w/ you considering a) we only have a few weeks left in the year, and b) i’m too stuffed/tired to post anything original today ;) Plus i’m on Holiday, – […]

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!!!

Do’s today: eat a lot. drink a lot (beer, milk, whatever). sleep a lot. hang out with your family a lot. and play/watch football a lot! Don’ts today: watch hours of tv (unless it’s football). stay hidden from all friends and family. play around on the internet […]

If a “Monopoly” movie came out, would we learn anything?

November 26, 2008

Well we’re about to find out!!! That’s right, it’s time to get excited my frugal kings and queens ;) According to many a websites out there, Ridley Scott (of “Gladiator” fame) will be producing it, and it’ll be all 3-D like…there’s been a lot of haters talking about it lately, but it’s at least worth a consideration. Here’s a funny/hater clip from Cinematical.com over a […]

Call me paranoid, but I need cash @ home to feel safe…

November 25, 2008

A nice wad of cash too – like all rubberbanded and stuff ;) It’s all about feeling safe these days, and this helps me to do just that. And we all have our own “right” amounts. Some feel good w/ $100 tucked away, while others have $1,000 locked down somewhere. Sure you won’t be earning interest on it, but it’s really about feeling comfortable here. […]

Dear emails, stop trying to tempt me out of my money. Thx.

November 24, 2008

Remember the time i made a boo-boo and bought that bling water for $40.00? Well, that same company – Bling H20 – is at it again! I just got an email from them trying to pursuade my fragile little mind to pick up another bottle, although this time for a wopping $2,500! WOWZERS. It’s called the “Dubai Collection” and states (i kid you not) “because […]

Would you Politically, and Publicly, sell out for $10,000?

November 21, 2008

This one may be my favorite yet. It’s not exactly a “would you rather” question, but it should definitely do the trick. You know why? Because it involves politics…..AND money. Both of which coule rile you up in a heartbeat ;) And what fun would this world be without testing your limits? So while the elections are still in the rear view mirror and nobody’s […]

Genius! Man Raffles off Millon-Dollar House for $50 a Pop!

November 20, 2008

Now THAT’s what i call getting creative! And these days, i don’t blame him – it sure is one way to sell a house (you hear that stupid foreclosure neighbor?!). Imagine, owning a 6,000 square foot 6 bedroom 4.5 bath house for a crisp $50 bill – AMAZING. Here’s a clip from the article i found on MSNBC: “After more than a year of making […]

November 19, 2008

Oh yes, we threatened our good friend d-head w/ court if he didn’t send us our pics by […]

Confess your financial sins and get slapped! Or hugged.

November 18, 2008

That’s right kiddies, there’s a new site in town just begging for your attention! I picked it up from Almost Frugal on a tweet this morning (see, twitter is awesome!), and i’ve already spent 20+ mins of my employer’s time on it ;) It’s called financialconfessions.net and it’s freakin’ awesome. People anonymously leave confessions and then you let them know how you feel about it […]

Twittering is the new blogging…for A.D.D. People :)

November 18, 2008

And boy can you learn a lot from it! I’ve only been a twitterer (tweeter?) for a few months now, but i gotta say that i sometimes learn more in those quick little words than i do reading an entire blog post! I think it has something to do w/ the conciseness of it all, and the fact you can read/skim them much faster, thus […]

So last night i hear that a neighbor was just foreclosed upon.

November 17, 2008

NOT. GOOD. AT ALL. Especially since i was hearing this while watching my ‘Skins drop their lead and lose it against our rival Cowboys last night! Talk about a double whammy. One being more important than the other, ofcourse, but equally upsetting ;) I didn’t know this neighbor, but she sure threw some awesome parties! It was like Cinco de Mayo there every other weekend […]

Pimping out your place for the Presidential Inauguration!

November 14, 2008

Here in DC, there are ads all over the place for this. Seriously, it’s starting to get insane and it’s still what, TWO months away? Some people are renting out their place for $2,000, $4,000, even $10,000! For 4-5 days! Daaaaaaaaaaaang son. There are over 450+ posts on craigslist yesterday alone for this. This is one of those times i wished i still lived around […]
