You know what’s fun? Reading a newspaper again. I randomly picked up a Wall Street Journal yesterday and immediately locked eyes on an article about Warren Buffett and all his financial wizardry. Or rather, the wizardry of all those people who realized he was onto something back in the 60’s and scooped up his stock for a whopping $40!! Can you imagine?? It’s currently trading […]

I recently got an unsubscription notice from someone who no longer wants these articles emailed to them (*tear*). Here’s the reason he put as why: I changed my philosophy on money and will be storing my treasures in heaven and not on this earth. At first I was like “Rock on, man. What a great reminder!” as I’m personally working on being better at giving […]

This is one of my favorite comments ever posted on this site, by Meg: “Every time my husband asks me when we can retire, I tell him that depends on whether he wants to live in a $50K, $500K, or $5M home… We could retire today if we wanted to downsize to the “extreme!” I love it because it sums up EVERYTHING about money and […]

Another month, another loss! Not as bad as last month’s massacre thankfully, but dropping $7k instead of $22k isn’t all that sexy either, haha… Unless you’ve got a hoard of cash just waiting to be dumped into the market, in which case YOU’RE FREAKIN’ BRILLIANT!!
