It started with my first (and totally impromptu) international trip to Rome last Fall, but I really didn't become interested in traveling on the cheap ( “travel hacking”) until my 30th birthday trip to Mexico.  The entire trip just cost $500 (for airfare and a few incidentals) for a long weekend at ...

As many of you know, I bought a house in 2013, which at times feels like a lifetime ago. Plus, I did it at age 26, when it felt like NO ONE my age was buying homes.

So, I know I've made a big deal about not recommending credit cards or balance transfer offers as part of any affiliate strategy in the past. I take my affiliates very seriously. But lately (especially after publishing the Debt Master Plan…) I've gotten emails from folks who would like to learn more about debt consolidation and transfer offers but didn't like the interest rates they were offered by Upstart, which, while ...

Have you ever considered that you might be addicted to spending money? If you have, and you landed here on this page…I'm willing to bet your spending habits aren't (as Mary Poppins says) ship-shape. While “addiction” is a strong, intense word, especially when it comes to describing a pattern of behavior like the way you spend your money, people can still be dependent on spending money whether it's to cover ...

  Not sure what it is about turning 30, but I'll admit it's throwing me for a bit of a loop (among other things going on right now…) It feels like all of a sudden I woke up with the need to obsessively re-evaluate everything about the way I'm living my life. It's a hard process…how do you find the time in between adulting and running a business and trying to ...
