I’ve touched on the topic of cars in my previous post, How to Not Buy a Car, and I even mentioned my 2007 Nissan Versa (pictured above, in all her glory). Honestly, this is my favorite car I’ve owned, and frankly, it’s not even close. In this article I’m going to explain how I made over $10k on a car and how I came to buy this car, and why it’s ...

You might’ve heard the name Warren Buffett. He happens to be the 4th wealthiest person in the world at a net worth of $76.9 billion and is the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway. You might not have known, however, that he has a one million dollar bet with the money management firm Protégé Partners. The bet is that an index fund (Buffett’s choice) will out perform an actively managed portfolio of ...

Craigslist: where you can find anything from someone selling a business to someone soliciting for obscure sex fetishes. We are going to find a happy medium to cover in this article, even though both of those options mentioned could likely net you some significant compensation, but, like most things in life, with greater reward comes greater risk. Anyone who knows me knows that I love Craigslist (and now Facebook Marketplace). It’s ...

Do you ever find yourself weighing all the options of a decision? Do you envision every possible outcome? At that point do you commit to a resolution, or do you continue this vicious cycle of constant analysis and never make a decision? If this sounds familiar, you may have ‘analysis paralysis’. According to the reliable source of Wikipedia, analysis paralysis is: is the state of over-analyzing a situation so that a ...

Let me ask you a question, have you ever dreaded going to the grocery store, knowing you were about to fork over a wing and a thigh (get it? Food humor, lol) to pay for all this stuff? I’m sure you’ve heard everyone say that it’s so much cheaper to cook your meals at home, instead of eating out? Instead you’re thinking, with the amount I spend on groceries, I ...

 (Our first foray in travel hacking. Our honeymoon in Dubrovnik in Sept 2015) In this post I’m not going to tell you to cut out your coffee, sell your SUV, or even how to cut the cord on cable. Here comes the fun stuff. Consumerists rejoice! I’m going to explain how you can get free flights anywhere in the world. Would you like to fly to Europe for free? Or would ...

Wait a second…didn’t this guy just post this article about how you could drink Starbucks (Insert any overpriced coffee place in this spot if Starbucks doesn’t apply to you) every workday and still retire early. I’m sure you are all confused at this point. Well, luckily, I’m here to clarify it for you. That article was all a farce. I lured you in with the idea that you can still have your ...
