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 […]

Back before I started this blog in ’08, I was your typical bachelor. I bought a lot of stuff I didn’t need but I really wanted, I hung out with friends 24/7 outside of my 9-5 (okay, so that’s not mathematically possible), and I drank like no other on the weekends. Life was good :) My wallet – and health – however, did not agree. […]
