What financial advice would you give Tiger Woods?

December 16, 2009

I feel trashy even mentioning Tiger Woods right now, but I honestly can’t help it. This question popped out to me over on WSJ’s FiLife.com, and I’m mesmerized by the possibility of answers!

Why throw things out just because they’re old?

December 14, 2009

It’s funny, the older and wiser I get, the less stuff I feel like replacing. I mean, if they get the job done I say keep on using them baby! Why get rid of old stuff just because it’s a little out of style? No one LIKES to go out and buy new stuff when they’re forced too – say, when your refrigerator breaks down […]

Money CAN Buy Happiness :)

December 11, 2009

We spend a lot of time cutting back and saving, and doing whatever else we can to ensure a healthy nest egg, but there’s something to say about SPENDING too. You know that saying, “Money can’t buy happiness?” Well, I believe it’s only partially true. Money can’t buy you love, or youth, or that feeling you get when you’ve accomplished something so amazing!, but it […]

December 3, 2009

I’ve had my iPhone 3GS for a good 4 months now, and overall I’m pretty impressed.

Today it was the 25 mins. waiting in the dentist’s chair, and […]

December 2, 2009

I’ll put an extra $7k in my pocket any day. And month, too.

This is great financially, but perhaps a bit boring to read so my apologies in advance ;) With most of you […]
