This article may contain affiliate links. Read our disclaimer. Google loves to try new things constantly (something I can more than get on board with). I love when companies try things for the sake of trying even if it fails. This one is far from a failure. I used to be on a family plan with my parents, in order to save money, but Ms. Blue Ribbon and I were getting sick ...

I wasn’t going to say anything about this Equifax thing since so many others are but something that My Money Wizard said made me want to. The majority of companies don’t care about you or your data. Doesn’t Everyone Secure Their Data? As you may know, I am a software developer and in my seven years of writing jibberish, I’ve seen some things at companies one would call …lax. My first job was ...

Welcome to my new series, “Simply Put Recipes.” I am taking Ms. Blue Ribbon and my favorite recipes and posting them on here. You may ask, “what does this have to do with personal finance?” Well, a lot. When it comes to budgeting, eating out can be a big drain on your finances.

I never knew someone could use the word “why” so many times in one day until my son became a toddler… “Car parked on road why?”“Guy running why?”“Dada tired why?”I could go on…why? That is when it hit me, ok a toy hit me but you get the idea, Mini Donut was asking the right questions. Why you ask…exactly! … I’ll elaborate. What your toddler can teach you You have your budget and you ...

I have talked about early retirement and why I want it and what is my motivation. Those things are important but don’t mean much without a plan. Yearly goals keep you motivated during the year but they are a small sliver on the timescale. Let me tell you about my three levels of goals. The Bucket List Shortly after Ms. Blue Ribbon and I got out of debt I started thinking about the ...

I’ve mentioned from time to time that we have done a lot of the things to speed up FIRE. Get rid of/avoid debt, have a plan to add more to retirement accounts, and trying to be more frugal. There are things we could still do like get a side hustle, get a higher paying job, and sell our house. Problem is I haven’t found a good side hustle I would excel ...

One of the biggest pet peeves of any parent is having someone tell them how to raise their children…so why do people do it?! Parents should know better! I am bewildered by the nerve of people. The Impressionable Around the time little Mini Donut was 6 months old I was shopping at Target, like you do, in the baby aisle,a parents favorite location, surveying all the gross sounding food combinations I could buy. ...

The Minnesota State Fair is one of the most important events in this state. Everyone from across the state come together to see all the wonderful things the fair has to offer. People even visit from other states and countries just to see the spectacles. The state fair has been a tradition of both Ms Blue Ribbon’s and my family since we were kids (her family takes it a little more ...
