It occurred to us late in the game here that we still didn’t have a Halloween costume for Baby Money. Not that he was really going to participate all that much (or remember, for that matter), but it’s still nice to get in the festive spirit for family and friends, and especially photos ;) I will never get this beautiful image out of my mind […]

I don’t know what’s going on in the music world right now, but I’m LOVING the lessons coming out of pop culture! First we had Lorde spitting lyrical lessons on money, and now we’ve got infamous Britney Spears reminding us what it takes to be successful – what is this world coming to?? ;) (That’s right, I listen to Britney Spears, son – don’t hate!)

You pay much less in taxes :) It’s been an interesting ride here the past 4 months in the Money household… We’ve gone from an average of $150k in salaries down to about $80k. And throughout it I’ve come to appreciate a lot things I’ve since forgotten. Like, that nothing’s ever permanent. Or perfect. Or always fun, for that matter. All of which is okay […]

Well, we survived our 1,600 mile road trip! I never want to get into a car again, but we survived ;) And we even did the first leg out all in one sitting! 800 miles in 15 hours straight – gotta say that was a first. Especially with a baby!

Yesterday I announced that I sold 4 of my non-fun websites for $50,000. I intended to leave it at that, but after reading y’all’s comments and questions, I quickly realized that I omitted a bunch of stuff by accident – specifically with what we’ll be DOING with this extra money now! The best part! Haha… Before we get to that part though, here are some […]

…But we had to give up a few things to get it ;) If you recall, our cash flow has slowly been dissipating over the past handful of months. Mainly due to all our new expenses we’ve got going on these days (day care, rental property, other baby stuff), and the fact we’re living on only one income now, but my online businesses haven’t been performing […]
