So I had one of those Seinfeld moments Saturday night when I had to chose between being “socially acceptable” or “that guy.” Kinda like the time when George and a friend decide to split the check down the middle, only to find out they wanted to tip differently than each other and one of them was about to look bad, haha… Only in my case, […]

This post is for all you LEGIT ADHD’ers out there, like yours truly ;) Who was diagnosed unofficially 8 years ago with it, and more formally 3 years ago – when his doctor gave him some mighty tasty pills which made him constantly high 24/7! Haha…  until said pills were discontinued and he woke up from a fun, yet very strange-like, haze ;) (They were […]

One of my favorite feisty bloggers online, Lindsay over at TeacHer Finance, wrote an excellent post that harkens back to the good ol’ days of witty mothers, wives, and ex-girlfriends. Her post could be summarized like this: “You don’t have to care about your money, but you’ll have to pay the consequences if you don’t.” I love how simple that is, yet how much truth […]

This weekend my wife asked me if I’d like to do one of the top 2 things a guy could ever ask for. Go yard saling with her ;) (I bet you can guess what the other thing) If there was ever a person who didn’t like driving around and looking at other peoples’ used stuff, it was her. But with the magical birth of […]

September 19, 2013

Remember when I crashed into a parked minivan this week, and no one was calling me back while the fear of the unknown grew and grew and started consuming my every waking thought? Well, we finally got the phone call :) And it couldn’t have gone any better: “Hey, just wanted to let you know that the car is totally fine. You’re a sweetheart for […]

[This is an awesome guest post by Sarah at Life, Comma, Etc… #IMHO] It’s easy to hop on a trend and add a hashtag to your latest tweet about going over the family budget. We’ve all seen them, lately: “Yeah, I want a down payment, but #YOLO right? And Maybe I should stay in and study tonight, but if I say no, they’ll stop inviting […]

Two days ago I backed into a car full-force while trying to move out of my parking space. I had shifted into reverse instead of drive for some dumb reason (we were on a STEEP incline and didn’t need to go back), and I slammed on the gas to quickly get outta there, only to go backwards at the speed of light and right into […]

$0.45. That’s the amount of change I’ve found on the ground in the past two months. 1 Quarter, 1 dime, and 10 pennies. And every single time I see one of those shiny little friends my eyes grow wide and my heart happier! $100.00. That’s the amount I was paid last week for a 1 hour consulting session on blogging. Also very exciting and warm […]

[Guest post by Jim Wang – formerly of Bargaineering.com before he sold it for $3+ MIL!] Starting something new is always exciting. I only recently started Microblogger and all of the excitement I had when starting Bargaineering came rushing back to the forefront. I was learning a new niche, reaching out to new people, making new friends (maybe a few enemies), but it’s been fun. […]
