Now $22,082 Cash-Less! ;)

March 13, 2012

But for a much MUCH better cause this time, haha… our retirement ;) Even though yesterday’s tax fail was a major hurt in the wallet, it could have been a TON worse had we not invested anything into our SEP IRA as well. Every dollar that goes into that bad boy, is one less dollar that can be taxed due to the way it’s set […]

I’m $6,284 Poorer Today.

March 12, 2012

But the worst part is I thought I’d be getting money BACK with all my tax stuff this year :( Only cuz my accountant literally told me I’d be receiving $4,000+ thinking I had over-paid the whole time, then realizing they had failed to include a pretty important piece of paper in their calculations – the Paypal 1099 (a new thing they began doing). And […]

How Much Did Your Outfit Today Cost?

March 9, 2012

Haha… bet you didn’t think you were gonna get […]

The Story of Heiress Huguette Clark

March 8, 2012

(Another interesting bio by my accountant friend, Barbara, who last shared with us the story of bank robber Willie Sutton. Just goes to show that money can’t buy us love!!) Heiress Huguette Clark, who was born in 1906 and died last May at 104, was America’s last living link to the 1890s “Gilded Age.” Her father, William A. Clark, was Montana’s “Copper King” and, according […]

March 6, 2012

Up and away we go! Lots of good things happening behind the scenes here, esp. with all our investments and extra house payments going on.

SolarCity Reviews: To Solar, or Not to Solar?

March 5, 2012

Oh man, I just got off the phone with a rep from Solar City, and I am sooooooo tempted right now to grab some solar panels for the roof!!!  I can’t believe how easy and SIMPLE it all seems, and they even have a $0 down deal too! (No, this is not an ad, haha…) There are of course some catches to the plan, but […]

March 2, 2012

Got another one for ya homies!  This one I stole off my girl Rachel King, of “almost the first MTV Twitter DJ” fame, haha…., and it’s a hard one so I’m hoping y’all need to think about it for a bit ;)  It’s getting trickier and trickier to come up with questions that you don’t answer so freakin’ fast!  So let’s see what this one […]

Do One Small Thing, Then Do Another

March 1, 2012
