I promised an update on the Storm Damage Insurance process when I first wrote about the significant hail damage we got in June (totaling over $20,000). This is my first time filing a claim, and when I asked friends and co-workers what to expect only a few of them have actually filed a claim before.

While I believe the best thing millennials can do to improve their financial situation is increasing their income, if you are going to focus on cutting costs, go Top Down. I touched on this topic when I talked about the strategy we used to pay down $60,000 in debt while building a $90,000 nest egg, […] The post Top Down Cost Cutting for the Average American appeared first on Apathy Ends. ...

This is the first Net Worth update I am doing as a Dad! Obviously the last 3 months flew by for us, but I am loving being a parent (most of the time 🙂 ).

Excited to have another post by Mrs. AE! She went through all the baby items we own and put together 14 Baby Items Worth Splurging On. Most of these are not absolute necessities, but they have come in handy consistently. The only thing I need to track down is an automatic bottle washer 🙂 Little […] The post 14 Baby Items Worth Splurging On appeared first on Apathy Ends. ...

Little fun Friday post for y’all today. Pretty sure this title is the first time I have typed OMG in my life and I still have mixed feelings about it. Have never been a really good Millennial on the hip shorthand front. Anyways, I recently wrote about one of my buddies and his ultra-non-frugal move of […] The post OMG…….I Might Be a Cheap Ass appeared first on Apathy Ends. ...

Welp, an amazing weekend on the lake took a pretty nasty turn by 10 AM on Sunday. I had just loaded up the boat and was getting ready to head home when Mrs. AE sent me this text: Looked like a June Blizzard out there, but that is all chunks of quarter to pebble sized hail […] The post All HAIL the Emergency Fund appeared first on Apathy Ends. ...

I was reading a BudgetsAreSexy post last week about the thought of withdrawing from your nest egg after spending so many years building it up. While that thought is terrifying to me (considering I resist tapping our Emergency Fund even when we have emergency worthy expenses – it’s going to take a missing finger for […] The post Could we go back to a life consumerism? appeared first on Apathy Ends. ...
