I admit, this post a little outta character. I don’t usually write about what the kiddos call “popular culture,” but Tiffany Haddish’s SNL monologue on Saturday stirred me up like a pot of hot gravy and I wanna smother myself in it. At one point, I was alone, high-knees marching around the room and pumping […] The post What We Can Learn From Tiffany Haddish’s Glorious SNL Monologue appeared first on ...

I have some friends that were in a fraternity in college. During their initiation period, they were locked into the shared frat shower and forced to listen to “Who Let the Dogs Out” by the Baha Men on repeat for 48 hours straight. (The following year’s fraternity “pledges” got “Toxic” by Britney Spears.) I can’t […] The post The Stock Market Is Going To Crash. Are You Ready' appeared first on ...

About five years ago, I read Tina Fey’s Bossypants. It came at a time where I was already feeling perturbed about how expensive and ridiculous and can sometimes feel to be a woman, and hearing Fey’s retrospection of growing up a woman felt like vindication to me. I’d never felt more heard than by her summary […] The post The Financial Harm of Beauty Standards appeared first on The Dumpster Dog Blog. ...

Newsflash! Despite my tales of scrounging the company fridge for leftover Choibanis and harnessing my inner Henry David Thoreau on the regular, I don’t actually give a shit about being frugal. So long as you’re saving what you need for retirement and you’re 100% prepared for the next economic downturn, do what makes ya happy […] The post 16 Ways to Enjoy Fall Without Spending a Dime appeared first on The ...

Historically, our firm rewarded the top performer in our department with a prize of several thousand dollars at the end of the year. The guy the year before even won a trip to Hawaii. But this year—this year would be different. It was the end of 2008 and the hardest and best worker, well, he […] The post We Need to Get Serious about the Next Economic Downturn. Here’s Why (and ...

Hi, doggies! Last week, I put out a blog post called 8 Realistic Money Tips for College Students (and Why Credit Cards Are Like Dorm Food.) I got to thinking, Hey, that’s pretty rude that I would expect college kids to read more than they have to, especially about this topic. I need to make […] The post Video!! 8 Money Tips for College Students (Part One) appeared first on The ...

Between hittin’ the books and hittin’ that hot soccer player piece of ass from the dorm (college is awesome), the start of the school year is a very busy time for the average college coed. If you’re one of ’em, I’m guessing that extracurricular reads about money responsibility are the last thing on your September to-do list.

In the last blog post, I gave you some amazing news: The best way to invest is actually the easiest way to invest. It’s all very “set it and forget it,” which couldn’t be better for those of us that prefer to live our sacred lives and not spend our waking hours by the light […] The post How to Be a Good Investor: A Dating Game! appeared first on The ...

Some money realities bite. Hard. The majority of people can’t make a living wage. The financial crisis of ten years past disproportionally dicked over millennials. Credit cards destroy lives. Student loans are a ridiculous burden for young people. Religiously saving money feels like eating a permanent sardine sandwich (while spending money tastes like gold-leafed gummy […] The post The Greatest Money News You’ll Hear This Year (Or Maybe Ever) appeared first ...
