There’s no right or wrong way to be generous. Charitable giving is a beautiful thing, no matter who it comes from or how big (or small) the dollar amount! Today, I’ll talk about some ways to include charity in your budget. As a kid, my parents taught me to tithe, giving 10% of all my earnings to our family church. It wasn’t much at the […]

Hey guys!!! Just finished dispersing all of the funds we raised from my random In-Home Auction the other week, and thought you’d enjoy hearing who we helped :) A massive thank you to not only those who donated over their $$$, but also those who took the time to recommend people we should consider helping! We raised a total of $665 and helped 7 different […]

Morning! So I woke up REALLY wanting to do something for people, and while I haven’t figured out *exactly* what that is yet, I DO know that it’ll require $$$ and I should probably start fundraising for it… BUT – instead of throwing out a plea to y’all the old fashioned way here, I thought we’d do something more fun and try turning this blog […]

Morning! Before we get started on this, just have to say I really enjoyed all your feedback the other day on our Fortnite post. And many of you brought up an excellent point on it that I completely missed: Gaming is a great way to spend *time* with friends and others! And it’s not unlike other ways we spend money to hang out with each […]

Hey guys! I rarely ask for anything on this site, but I’m compelled to do it today as I just found out a friend of mine has been suffering in silence and I feel like I have to use this platform to help. Even though she’d probably kill me right now knowing I’m about to share this with the world! I don’t know how many […]

3 Tricks I Do That Helps Me Be More Charitable

You know what really impresses me? Unicorns. You know what impresses me 10x more? People who naturally think of others before themselves :) Unfortunately for me I’m closer to being a unicorn than I am someone who thinks of others first, haha, but over the years I have learned that you can trick yourself into being a better person just by incorporating a few daily […]

Morning! My boy James Clear just came out with a clever new newsletter, and I thought I’d be a bit cheeky today and copy it for a fun little blog post ;) Here’s the idea behind his latest endeavor: “Every Thursday, I send out my “3-2-1” newsletter with 3 ideas from me, 2 quotes from others, and 1 question for you. The goal of each […]

Mornin’, y’all! You might have seen this already if you follow me on Twitter or my Newsletter, but I had to share it here too because I’m currently OBSESSED with these guys! And not just because they created COINS to give out! Which they did!! ;) It’s a project here in DC called “Breadcoin“, and they’ve pretty much created their own currency which can be […]

Morning guys! Found this song on MP3 doing my daily decluttering challenge, and was blown away by how powerful it still is! Touches on so many things we talk about here – charity, freedom, introspection, and even those on which we don’t, but are still unfortunately very prevalent in our society. Was super moved all over again at how beautiful this song is, and hopefully […]

A Different Way of Looking at Spending?

April 10, 2017
Thumbnail image for A Different Way of Looking at Spending?

I’ve been trying something new lately where every time I have to spend money on something – whether a need or a want – I try to look at it as I’m “supporting” the place my money’s going to vs. “I’m spending my hard earned money” there. The effect to my wallet usually remains the same, but what I’ve noticed is that I’m starting to […]

Hi guys!!! I’m soooooo excited to share this today. We finally got our philanthropy project off the ground! Check it out –> rockstarfinance.com/community-fund/ Now I know what you’re thinking, “Ugh – another charity project out there, borrrring….” To which I’d respond, “See what we’re doing first Judgy McJudgerton! I guarantee you’ve never seen this before ;)” To which you’d probably hit back with, “Okay fine – but I’m […]

Storing Treasures in Heaven vs. Earth

I recently got an unsubscription notice from someone who no longer wants these articles emailed to them (*tear*). Here’s the reason he put as why: I changed my philosophy on money and will be storing my treasures in heaven and not on this earth. At first I was like “Rock on, man. What a great reminder!” as I’m personally working on being better at giving […]

Do You Give Money to Panhandlers?

I did, twice this week. And each time my wife scolded me. She tells me it’s smarter to give to “legitimate” charities because you never know if these panhandlers are lying. Which is true, you don’t, but what if they aren’t? What if they do have cancer and no home and 5 kids who can’t afford to eat dinner that night? What if they are […]

Happy “Free Money Day!”

So something funny happened yesterday as I was doing a little work. I was in search of a Flickr photo relating to kids and money for an upcoming Rockstar Finance post, and amidst my scanning I see this pic featured above of these signs promoting “Free Money Day.” Initially I just kept going and tried not getting sucked into the black hole that is the […]
