Just call me the next Justin Timberlake, baby! Or, rather, just never call me again, haha… What you’re about to watch is really really bad – I’m not kidding. And I’m not talking about just the ghetto quality either. I wouldn’t be surprised if your computer screens cracked mid-way through watching ;) But when I heard there was a contest to win $1,000 for just […]

I was exchanging war stories with my boy Derek the other day, and at some point he mentioned how he’s always getting asked *how* to save money. And then we both laughed cuz it’s what everyone always wants to know as if there was a secret or something :) There’s not. People just don’t do it! He then told me (sarcastically) that he’s going to […]

That was the title of an email I just received from Aimee – a fellow fan of the site. Intrigued (of course) I opened it up, and I’m so glad I did: Yo J, You HAVE to listen to this guy! My boyfriend and I are taking off in a van in the Fall to explore America for 5 weeks and he came across this […]

We’ve talked about compounding before on this site, most recently with the doubling penny!, but here’s another way to help get it to sink in more. And in a nice and nerdy way at that. (Don’t you have to see something like 7 times before you “get it”? Or is that just a marketing thing? If so, we’ve got 5 more articles to go! Haha… […]
