[Happy Monday guys :) Thought we'd start it off right this week with a pretty kick-ass article from my old friend Anton. Last time he shared with us his money lessons from growing up in the former USSR, and now - a year later - he's officially a millionaire and shares how he achieved this. How many of these habits are you currently doing?] Earlier […]

Having Enough

Every few weeks I’ll lean in to my wife and whisper, “If I were to die tomorrow, I’d be a happy man.” It freaks her the hell out (and rightfully so) but it’s a reminder to her, and more importantly to myself, that as of this day in time I have enough. I have enough love. I have enough things. And I (almost) have enough […]

What up what up frugal gangsters! My new favorite wireless carrier just released their latest (cheap-as-hell) smart phone, and because they think budgets are sexy too they’re shipping me two to give away to y’all today :) Along with 3 months of free service!

Inevitably any time you mention you’re working on “retiring early” to someone, you’re met with comments like, “that’s not possible,” and “won’t you get bored???” (Gag me) The first one I can understand because, well, it’s hard as $hit to pull off and you have to want it bad enough to accomplish it.

Getting an inheritance is always bitter sweet. On one hand you’re getting a chunk of money for free for doing nothing at all, and on the other someone has to pass away in order for you to receive it. It’s very much bitter, with a tinge of sweet. Then you have the times when it’s 99% sweet and only 1% bitter – like when you […]

The average life of a personal finance blog is pretty small in the grand scheme of things. Most bloggers can make it past the first two months without burning out/giving up, but many will stop way before they hit their first anniversary.
