Dog ownership can be as expensive as you want to make it. If your precious pooch needs organic food, a custom dog bed shaped like a hot rod, diamond-studded collar, etc., things can really add up. Even if you have more modest ideas of what a dog needs, dog ownership is still not cheap. You [...] The post How much does a dog REALLY cost' appeared first on Proud Money. ...

By Adam Jusko, ProudMoney.com, adam@proudmoney.com. [NOTE: This post originally appeared on June 20, 2017.] I love live music. If there’s a performer I want to see, I will generally pay the cost regardless of price (while railing away at those ridiculous TicketMaster fees!). I never regret it. What do you spend money on that always [...] The post What do you spend money on that always feels worth it' appeared first ...

By Adam Jusko, ProudMoney.com, adam@proudmoney.com Every month my cable/Internet company tries to steer me into automated payments straight from my checking account. I resist. Why? Because, Number One, I hate my cable/Internet company, and I do the opposite of whatever I think will make them happy. Number Two, I do it because I want to force myself to look at a physical bill each month, to check for sneaky price increases, ...

By Adam Jusko, ProudMoney.com, adam@proudmoney.com I have a friend who came in to a large sum of money via inheritance. He was doing well enough financially already, so the new money was nice to have (despite the circumstances), but not desperately needed. So he wasn’t sure what to do with it. While he planned to invest some of it, he also decided to pay off his mortgage. Here was his rationale: His mortgage ...

By Adam Jusko, ProudMoney.com, adam@proudmoney.com If you’re dreaming of a hard-won financial independence secured by multiple millions of dollars in the bank, you may be wondering how anyone gets there. You see the stories of multi-millionaires who retire by 30, 40, 50, and you think — how? Is that really possible? Well, it’s not easy, but it possible. And know this: the first million is the hardest. After reaching the $1 million mark, ...

By Adam Jusko, ProudMoney.com, adam@proudmoney.com I hate buying cars. I hate going in and dealing with the salespeople. I always feel like there are a lot of fake niceties but in the end their goal is to sell me a car at the highest possible price and make a sucker out of me. I hate feeling like I’ve been played for a fool. So, for the second time in the last 10 ...

By Adam Jusko, ProudMoney.com, adam@proudmoney.com Not all practice is equal. If you like to golf, going to a driving range and hitting a bucket of balls is practice. It keeps you in a sort of rhythm so you don’t get worse. But it doesn’t necessarily help you improve. On the other hand, if you do “deliberate practice” (a term coined by peak performance psychologist Anders Ericcson), you wouldn’t just drive some balls ...
