My beautiful wife was awoken by my 4 y/o this morning all full of wonder with a million things racing through his mind… He started rattling them off before he was even half awake! Mommy, can you imagine… if you had this egg, where you could put stuff in? Can you imagine, mommy… if you had a glass that was half red and half white?! […]

“The Miser and His Gold” – Aesop’s Fables: A Miser had buried his gold in a secret place in his garden. Every day he went to the spot, dug up the treasure and counted it piece by piece to make sure it was all there. He made so many trips that a Thief, who had been observing him, guessed what it was the Miser had […]

“We often neglect the things we love, in favor of our likes and wants, because likes and wants tend to cost less and take less patience to acquire.” – The Budgetnista BAM! Well said Budgetnista. The good stuff is definitely attainable but we always let those pesky likes get in the way slowing us down… It’s as if we were human or something ;) But […]

That’s right, today is officially Be a Millionaire Day! Much cooler than Clean Up Your Room Day (5/10) or *gasp* Pi Day (3/14), but not nearly as tasty as National Fudge Day (6/16) ;) Unlike cleaning your room or gorging yourself on fudge, however, becoming a millionaire takes some key things to pull off. Namely, having the drive and an action plan. Without either you’re […]

Well, friends – we had our lowest savings yet from this Challenge Everything adventure. Only $253.37 banked this month which is a hard fall from the $800+ levels we were at just a few months ago. Still a nice chunk of change considering it was all free, but it appears my hustling in this department has since waned… Am I mad at myself? Yes and […]

[Guest blogger today – Anne – from Unique Gifter] Sometimes there are events that really stick out in your mind, years and years later, even though they were pretty inconsequential at the time. I’m about to share one of those things for me, which I perhaps remember because it was traumatic to my young mind? It was at a Christmas party for the local professional […]

A Relationship Between Personal Income and Gambling?

Got this email from a fellow sexy reader, wondering how gambling may fall into the whole budgeting equation here. Which I personally find AWESOME because it A) means he’s not an addict! (Anyone who formulates a plan before betting everything on black has a good head on their shoulders in my eyes ;)) and B) means we get to talk about poker and blackjack today! […]

We did *NOT* win our lottery game! Haha… though we did come away with $5.00 ;) Which is funny because BOTH of the winning lottery tickets we had were because of YOUR errors! Haha, way to pay attention. Here were the lucky Mega Millions numbers for our drawing: 24, 25, 45, 47, 53 and 42 (Mega Ball). And here were the two that came closest […]
