I’ve Got 99 Problems but a *Million Dollar Umbrella Insurance Policy* Ain’t One.

February 10, 2014

I don’t know why I haven’t blogged about this already (oh wait, yes I do – because it’s B-O-R-I-N-G!), but we’ve had this umbrella policy going on about 8 months now. Ever since moving to VA and having about 10 billion + 1 people at the exact same time kept asking if we had any. That’s when I know it’s time to pay attention to […]

[Guest article today by my blogger friend, John Schmoll from FrugalRules.com] What do you think of when you hear the term black hole? According to NASA, some of the hallmark characteristics of black holes are invisibility and varying size. They literally can’t be seen, and can be sized anywhere from a puddle to a sea.

There’s not too many things that surprise me anymore with money, but apparently I still haven’t came across them all yet. My wife walked into my office this week and proudly exclaimed, “Our daycare rate went down! For doing nothing!” “Ummm… how is that possible??” I confusingly shot back. “Baby Money moved up to a new class size w/ fewer teacher-to-child ratio. We’re gonna save […]

There’s a new blog I’ve started following, and each article on the site is half written by the wife of the team (Angela), and the other by the husband (Kirby). It’s pretty weird at first reading two people going back and forth on the same post, but once you get used to that it’s kinda interesting :) The blog’s called, The Simple Money Blog – check […]
