Someone once said sang “love don’t cost a thing”.  And, boy, wouldn’t that be awesome.  Especially on Valentine’s Day.  A day that tends to be more pricey than not.  Not to worry though.  Here are 30 frugalicious, free Valentine’s Day ideas which will appease both the frugal nerd in you and the Valentine’s Day loving partner you (most likely) have. The retail industry tries to convince us of the complete opposite ...

Happy New Year Everyone : ) I hope everyone had a great holiday and possibly even a few days off.  I am back from my annual year-end vacation and, just like all of us, am finding my way back into the rhythm of day-to-day, non-holiday life. This year I have decided to start a new tradition.  Year in and year out, I experience holiday burn out.  Financially mostly, but also ...

Over the past few weeks, I have been to more holiday parties than I care to admit.  I mostly go for the company.  And, every once in a while, even for the free food and drink. *frugal alert* While I mingled with friends and colleagues, all while dodging THAT co-worker who can’t hold his liquor, a common theme emerged.  “We love the holidays! We hate the cost!” Not difficult to ...

Are goals for the new year pointless'  They can sometimes seem like the unattainable version of yourself and your life.  But, since 99.9% of us are usually buzzed by midnight on December 31st, anything seems possible, right' Over the past decade, I have set some realistic and some rather ambitious goals for myself.  You might be able to relate to some of them.  Or call me completely crazy… A Walk ...

Every person with a pulse loves a few thousand dollars flying into the house every year.  Nevertheless, for the first time ever, I don’t want to collect a tax return next year.  And neither do you! Before you call me crazy, hear me out.  What is disguised as a bonus every year, is actually us lending the government money.  To make matter worse, it’s an interest-free loan.

Odds are the turkey buzz has long worn off now.  It has been two weeks after all.  And at this point, ignoring your holiday shopping list is just not an option anymore.  Bummer! Unless, of course, you’re in love with crowded shopping malls, fighting for parking spaces, and enjoy the seemingly never-ending sales pitch from every store.  In that case, all the power to you.

It is that time of the year again.  Everyone (myself included) is recovering from turkey dinner overload.  All thoughts are turned toward Christmas and what gifts to buy.  And, of course, what shindig to attend for New Year’s Eve. Why not add something else to the list of December activities'  How about what to save money on this coming year.  Of course (as my better half likes to remind me ...

This past week, I stumbled across an interesting new article about retirement vesting losses.  And it gave me some serious flashback to how I got close to losing $5,000.  I would really like for you not to run the same risk.  So let me explain… A few months ago, I switched jobs for a number of reasons.  For one, my new role pays more and it was a nice career ...

The current administration has drawn the curtains on its much talked about Republican tax plan proposal.  The more than ambitious goal is to get the proposal passed before 2018. If that will be the case, and whether all proposed points will be passed, is to be seen.  Nevertheless, let’s take apart the proposal and see what’s in store for us should it get passed as is. The Republican Tax Plan ...
