My New Skateboard & Other Awesome Things

by J. Money on Friday, February 18, 2011

budgets are sexy skateboardWelcome to another rousing roundup of my fave links and sites from the week! You can barely stand it huh? I know I know, I treat you all so well ;)

Before we get started though, I wanted to give a quick shout out to Mike from Clever Dude who JUST knocked out his entire 2nd mortgage!  9 years early, and a whopping $80,000!  Way it rock it bro, you are an inspiration :)  I want to vomit every time I look at ours, haha….

Also, check out this skateboard Brad from Enemy of Debt made me!! It’s a “Budgets Are Sexy” board! ROCK.

And lastly, before we get to the goodies today, I wanted to ask you something.  Have you ever used/heard of Goldstar.com?  We partner with them over at Love Drop, but I only just recently signed up to see exactly what they offer (I know, sad huh?) and it was awesome!  They’ve got all these tickets to local events here in Murrland at like 50% off.  Wanted to run it by you in case you had thoughts or were interested?

And if you’re ever wondering what to buy me one day, here is your answer: “Swear Rings” by Wendy Brandes. I am in love.  How the heck can I spend over $300 on it though??  #conundrum

Goldstar’s a pretty good site. I’ve gotten almost half off of tickets to some shows, i.e. Avenue Q. Granted you don’t know what seats you’re gonna get til the day of the show, it was still good spots that would have cost $80 or so…

I’ve used goldstar before. You can have them sent you out a monthly e-mail of all the events coming to the area and their deals. Its a nice way to keep up with what is going on around town, especially around here in the DC area! (My friend and I saw Avenue Q a few months back using tickets purchased through goldstar too! HILARIOUS!)

You should thank my man Brad from Enemy of Debt — he spent the hours hookin’ me up! Found the blue board and everything, pretty sexy ;)

Have a great weekend, sir.

I heart goldstar, especially for sports games. I even made a post about it on my blog:
