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 […]

You know those movies which show you what your life would look like if you had chosen a different path? Well, yesterday morning I chose the wrong one quite literally, and ended up smacking right into a brand new car as it cut across my lane without looking. Ugh… All of us are safe and sound and no one hurt at all (or else I […]

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get down on myself and wonder where the hell all my money’s going each month. I know we’re doing well overall and can just peek at our net worth to make myself feel better whenever I’m down (another pro to tracking your stuff!), but in the instant it really only helps so much. How can we blow […]

So I don’t know if this is a sign or not, but we literally JUST got a notice in the mail asking if we wanted to renew our flood insurance for the year ;) Right as Hurricane Sandy is about to hit hard and wreak havoc all around us! Yikes. (For all you reading this right now on the East coast, I hope you’re doing […]

Every time I think I can forget about my health insurance, something comes up and reminds me all over again how much I despise it.  I know it’s important and there’s nothing you can really do to avoid it unless you were billionaire or something, but I’m still gonna bitch and moan about it anyways cuz this is my blog and I can cry if […]

Why ISN’T There Blog Insurance?

Thumbnail image for Why ISN’T There Blog Insurance?

Yesterday we talked all about swapping out a website for a condo, but one area I didn’t get a chance to expand on much was that of INSURING our blogs and sites we so diligently work hard on every single day.  It scares the poop outta me that we don’t have insurance for them, doesn’t it you?! I know there’s “business insurance” out there and […]

I asked the wife what to blog about today cuz I was out of money ideas (it’s hard coming up with them every day! :)), and she told me to talk about warranties.  Which wasn’t the most exciting thing to hear if I’m being totally honest, haha, but I did realize I’ve never actually blogged about those before ;) And people are ALWAYS wondering if […]
