(**If you're sensitive to the nature of this matter, you should avert your eyes now.** But if you're not, and you've always wondered how to get paid to donate sperm, you're in for a real treat ;) This was sent in by Mike, a fellow blogger and reader, who wants people to know that not all side hustles always go as planned... Though at least he got to be famous on a blog for it!
"My favorite things aren’t things any more" - Courtney Carver Last month I almost did something crazy. I almost gave away my entire coin collection. That's right - the guy who only has one main hobby left, and created an entire blog dedicated to these historic beauties, almost gave up collecting entirely. Why? Well, as odd as it sounds, my collection was the last
You might think I love everything about money as a finance blogger, but I wouldn't bet the house on it as you'd be wrong :) (Though I do know of a house for sale if you end up losing it!) Today I thought I'd share some of the areas I hate just to let you know you're not alone. It doesn't mean I don't pay attention to them, but it doesn't mean I have to be in love with them
[Hey guys! Have a feisty one about what to not do at a bank for y'all today while still at the beach ;) Brought to you by a new blogger on the scene, Marc, from SelfEmploymentMovement.com. Check it out and then show him some love over on his site! (As long as you're not one of the people doing the following below - hah)] I’ve spent the last 3 years as a bank teller at a
Guess what day it is? Guess what day it is?? Never gets old... :) It's also the day we play a new game called, "Things I can afford when ____ is gone!" Woop woop! Right after, "My biggest expense costs me WHAT now?" But first, let's backtrack... Last week I asked all the smart readers of this blog to download a new phone app so I could poll y'all on some sexy
For the second dang time in the same dang month, I'll have to update my freakin' dang credit card info across all the sites it's freakin' attached to. If you ever want to annoy the piss out of yourself, throw your card out the window right now and then request a new one :) We'll commiserate together! But, luckily all this bitching comes with a helpful tip. Which I'll be
I write today's post with both disgust, and relief. Disgust because we shelled out over forty-seven THOUSAND freakin' dollars on our house last year (!!!), but a sweet relief that we're finally out of that dang place and onto greener pastures... as well as getting all those renos out of the way too. But it still stings looking at the numbers no matter how you put
What a crappy crappy week... From the highs of moving in to our new home, straight to the lows of less income and realizing how stressful rental properties can be :( This post was literally supposed to be a "YAY!!! We've got renters!!!" one, but at the last minute it fell through and the family decided the place wasn't for them. On the same day they were supposed to sign the
Got this email from a friend in response to my post on upgrades I'd make if I were rich, and it's something I bet a lot of us can appreciate. No one likes a complainer who doesn't want to do anything about their situation! Like all those people who bitch about politics but then never vote or take any action. Do you expect your complaints will solve the world's problems???
Man, I've got to tell you - ever since I started this whole Year of The Simple goal in January, it's been non stop learning and reducing stress as the days go by. It's amazing how much better you feel when less "stuff" is getting thrown your way every other minute! I already mentioned I no longer have a Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn profile anymore for the "real" me, and
