[Heyo! Got another killer guest post lined up for y’all today, this time from long-time reader JW who now has a blog of his own over at The Green Swan.  He just had one of those amazing conversations about life and money with his father, and thought we’d might enjoy hearing how it all went down. I think he guessed right – check it out […]

[Happy Friday! Got a fresh article from long-time reader, Gene Roberts, who you might recall from previous posts, Zen and the Art of Couples Budgeting and Dream as if you’ll live forever, live as if you’ll die today. Both of which ironically allude to motorcycles which plays a big role in today’s story. I’ll admit it IS one of those “insurance reminder” type articles, but I […]

You know what’s awesome? Dreaming about all the things you’d do if you won the lottery :) You know what’s kinda-sorta-but-not-really ALSO awesome? Dreaming up all the things your family can do when you die and leave them all that life insurance money ;) Because if there’s anything worse than dying itself, it’s dying and then having to deal with a bunch of financial problems […]

You might think I love everything about money as a finance blogger, but I wouldn’t bet the house on it as you’d be wrong :) (Though I do know of a house for sale if you end up losing it!) Today I thought I’d share some of the areas I hate just to let you know you’re not alone. It doesn’t mean I don’t pay […]

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 […]

I was poking around a few blogs last night looking for great articles for Rockstar Finance, and I came across this cool one by Adam Hagerman. He was in a “thinky” mode about life and money, and decided to ask himself 11 questions regarding his finances for a little more clarity (or, to better help his blog readers find clarity). As someone who loves answering […]

Biggest Idiot in The World

Two days ago I backed into a car full-force while trying to move out of my parking space. I had shifted into reverse instead of drive for some dumb reason (we were on a STEEP incline and didn’t need to go back), and I slammed on the gas to quickly get outta there, only to go backwards at the speed of light and right into […]

You know those weeks when people try to steal your money left and right? And you have to be extra on your game to power through and prevent it all from happening? Well, that was the case this week here at the J. Money household, and not surprisingly it mostly revolved around insurances. (Why is that always the case?) So this week’s Wins & Losses […]

You know how financial experts are always recommending you move to a cheaper area to save money? As if it’s so easy to leave behind your friends and family and everything else you’ve built and come to enjoy over the years? Well, I still think it’s as dumb of an option to recommend since I first heard it, but I gotta admit there’s some truth […]

Two and a half hours sitting at Progressive’s car center to get a report back that my car is considered a “total loss” now :( Apparently the damaged caused in our recent accident (which I was not considered at fault in, btw) exceeds the total worth of the precious sexy car. Meaning it’s not as simple any more of taking a check or getting it […]
