What happens when you think about money too much…

April 9, 2014

The Measurements of Value

April 8, 2014

I did something fun and picked up another old-school book to review today :) McMichael’s Appraising Manual by Stanley L. McMichael. 3rd edition circa 1948 – shortly after World War II. Only this time around it wasn’t nearly as fun as last month’s Thrift book we reviewed, unless you’re a diehard real estate fan and/or master appraiser, haha… (I picked it up on impulse thinking […]

How to Tell if You’re Financially Sexy

April 7, 2014

It’s no secret that everyone here knows budgeting and proper money management is sexy. As I stated in the creation of this blog over 6 awesome years ago, the calculation doesn’t lie: Budgeting = Confidence = Sexy While proven to be correct, however, it’s been brought to my attention that there’s more to being “financially sexy” than just your management skills.

This is the same friend who got duped by that fake $100 bill a while back, haha.. Here’s the question he posed […]

Is it – Or is it Not – Illegal to Draw on Dollars?

April 3, 2014

[VERY interesting article by my friend Richard Anthony of MoneyGraffiti.com. IS doodling on dollars truly illegal?? And, does anyone really care? ;)] Since childhood, society has instilled 2 truisms in me: It’s illegal to photograph money. It’s illegal to write/draw on money (i.e. deface it). The History of My Obsession Back in the 1980’s, behind a retail cash register, I was unprepared for the steady […]

Net Worth Update: $440,520.07 (Down $3,000)

April 2, 2014

Time for another net worth update! I swear we do this like every month? ;) But, unlike last month’s $10,000 gain, this time around we drop a few thousand and I promptly keep my tail between my legs and move on. Nothing too horrible like last year’s $40k drop (that was a spicy meatball!), but nothing really to get excited about either. In fact, as […]

$11,706 to be exact. And no, this is not an April Fool’s joke ;) (I was going to pretend I sold this blog for a million dollars and was dipping out, but came to my senses figuring you guys were way too smart for that… It’s pretty obvious my blog is worth at least a billion.) So today, I feel rich my friends! Despite my […]
