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.

I recently returned from my annual incursion into the wilderness, and my time outdoors was precisely what I needed: challenging, stunning, interesting. Perhaps not what some would think of as the ideal vacation, but perfect for me. In the last few years, I’ve become quite clever at merging work and travel and finding ways to […] The post Dumpster Doggy Hits the Road: How (and Why) I Adventure For Dirt Cheap ...

Originally published on SoFi.com.  A wealthy real estate mogul recently told millennials to stop buying avocado toast if they ever want to buy a house, and the internet went berserk. The advice was poorly received because many felt that it was out of touch with the current financial environment.

Millennials get a bad rap for doing stupid sh*t and being annoying. We fall off the side of the Grand Canyon while selfie-ing, twerk on Facebook live, and in general, “can’t even.” When we’re not worshiping the Illuminati, meme lords, and the patron saints of avocado toast, we keep very busy not knowing who Paul […] The post The Stupidest Thing Millennials Are Doing Right Now appeared first on The Dumpster ...

I feel like I always knew I’d make it into the British tabloids, I just didn’t think it would be for eating trash. On the fourth of July, my sister—a recent London transplant!—sent me a link to an article on my Dumpster Dog story in the Daily Mail, which is the United Kingdom’s second-largest newspaper […] The post Dumpster Doggy On The British News! appeared first on The Dumpster Dog Blog. ...
