Look At Bill, Pay The Bill, Forget About Bill.

Or at least the way I prefer to handle them! I look at ’em, I pay ’em, and then […]

What Would You Do With 3 Financial Do-Overs?

May 27, 2009

There’s a Money Genie over at Adam’s blog today, and he’s been so kind as to lend him to us! A true gentlemen indeed. Now, this genie isn’t your ordinary genie, but rather a financially-savvy one! So don’t try and ask it to bring you hot women or better looks or anything like that because it won’t work ;) Before I continue though, I should […]

The Price of Faith: Muslim & Jewish Financial Challenges

May 26, 2009

Ever thought about how religion plays a part in your finances? As a Catholic I’m trained to think in terms of tithing and such, but after reading about some other faiths out there – the Muslim and Jewish communities in particular – I am *blown away* at how different the role of money comes into play here. This article in Money Magazine (pg.88, June ’09) […]

"Goodness Is The Only Investment That Never Fails."

May 22, 2009

Spoken by the brilliant Henry David Thoreau. That quote sums up exactly what’s on my brain today – charity. The last time I wrote about this I decided to donate $25 to a new organization every month. Sadly, I continue to forget this every month until one pops along my radar or I specifically get asked to contribute to someone’s latest cause. Today I vow […]

It’s Official: I’m Addicted to Monopoly…

May 21, 2009

After 15 years of silence, Monopoly has re-emerged and infected me with it’s awesomeness. The first couple weeks playing it again was a nice stroll down memory lane, but $50 and 30+ hours later I’m starting to wonder where this is all going. (I even played for 45 minutes before (and during) the start of work this morning. WTF?) Yeah $50 freakin’ dollers…I actually downloaded […]

Audit Me All You Want – My Accountant’s Got My Back.

May 14, 2009

Ooooooooh, scared Maryland?! Yeah, I thought not. But I tell you one thing, I’m damn happy I have an accountant on my side! It reiterates my theory that it’s better to use a CPA than file your own taxes if you don’t know what you’re doing (like me). As you can tell, I just got audited by the great state of Maryland. But the weirdest […]

Paying extra towards your loans now, goes a long way later!

May 12, 2009

That’s the 100% truth my friends! The more you pay off now, the less you pay in interest later – It’s like kickin’ compound interest in its head and getting away with it. I’m certainly not the first to promote this concept, but it was about time I go on record and state it once and for all :) As I’ve mentioned in previous net […]

Well, I survived New Orleans! And I must say, Las Vegas has nothing on them. Never have I seen so much beauty and filth all packed into the same town, it was awesome. And now, 48 hours after all that beer and sight seeing and music and voodoo and bonding, it’s back to good ol’ reality. And it’s a good thing too cuz my body […]
