It’s easy to become discouraged and even disgusted by your own financial story these days. Everywhere you look, a 20-something is making millions or a 30-something has enough money in investments to retire. And there you sit with heaping debt, not knowing how to fund your child’s college education, and a tiny retirement account. Financial blogs […] The post Don’t Be Ashamed Of Your Financial Story appeared first on Mad Money Monster. ...

Now I understand you’re probably scratching your head; I mean c’mon, why the heck would anyone on the path to financial independence buy glasses when they don’t actually need them? The answer is simple. We spend plenty (read: a ton) of time staring at computer screens, iPad screens, iPhone screens – yeah, we still have iPhones […] The post We Didn’t Need New Glasses, But We Bought Them Anyway! appeared first on ...

As much as I hate to think about it, there is something that nags at me. There is obviously a ton of hype around reaching financial independence these days.  It’s nearly impossible to execute a few thumb flicks on any social media app without scrolling past a story about early retirement. The story typically goes something like […] The post Are Educated Professionals Cheating Society By Retiring Early? appeared first on Mad Money ...

Blogs walk a fine line between information and soul baring. I agreed to do a guest blog to contribute to Mrs. Mad Money Monster’s endeavors with this website, but did not look forward to the self reflection that comes along with it.

That’s right! We’re reaching financial independence without riding our bikes to work. Ever. First of all, let me say that I am in awe of people who put this much effort into their financial independence journey. It’s not only the effort that astounds me, it’s also one’s willingness to risk their life to reach financial independence […] The post We’re Reaching Financial Independence Without Bikes or Baked Beans appeared first on Mad ...

You’ve heard the arguments before. A couple is looking for a new house and they want to make sure their new home can accommodate EVERYTHING. Everything means a formal dining room, a home office, a playroom, and an extra bedroom (and maybe even bathroom) for their occasional out-of-town guests. If this sounds ridiculous to you, […] The post Why We Refuse To Buy A Bigger House For Occasional Guests appeared first ...

Remember when I said we used to do money all wrong? No? Well trust me, I said it because we did. I can’t even begin to tell you how many gym memberships I have gone through in my life. It started as soon as I graduated high school. I had an older brother who really […] The post Frugal Alternatives To Your Pricey Gym Membership appeared first on Mad Money Monster. ...

This article may contain affiliate links. As I was perusing the Interweb this week, I came across some survey results that outlined the extent to which parents are taking on student loans for their kids. Truth be told, these results floored me.

Over the years I have had an on-again, off-again relationship with my W-2 job. We started out hot and heavy after college and then, out of nowhere, our relationship cooled. Then, after a few years of working on our relationship, we found our groove. That groove is the appreciation I have for the existence of […] The post Why I Love My W-2 Job And You Should Love Yours Too appeared ...

If you’re making a healthy salary and you’re still coming up short at the end of each month, there’s a problem.
