Rich people invest their money, and spend what’s left. – Jim Rohn Something tells me we have more rich people reading this today than poor people, am I right? Right? Right???

Yesterday I found my biggest score yet on a single walk: 16 whole cents! Six pennies and one dime, just littered on the ground as if money fell from trees (maybe they did fall from a tree? :)).

If you can believe it, we’re now into month #8 of our 12 month experiment already! And so far we’ve saved a sexy $3,843.70 pretty much out of thin air. Here’s a snapshot of my account: Some of it took more work (hustling on Craigslist) while others didn’t at all (making a few phone calls), but the moral of the story is quite clear by […]
