One of the benefits of having sold our rental house earlier this year was that it freed up some cash that we could use on some “deferred” items we haven’t been able to purchase. Buying a mattress was on the top of that list. Ever since my wife quit her job due to some health-related issues, she has been on a quest to feel better. One of the more helpful paths ...

You ever had anyone tell you that you can’t-do something? Like they were laughing in your face, and tell you there isn’t any way in “H-E- Double-Hockey-Sticks” that you could do it in your lifetime? Doesn’t that tick you off? Call them your #HTTRs!! When I was a senior in High School, a classmate and I were playing golf with his dad, and a fellow retired buddy. During the round, on the 17th ...

A few weeks back, my wife went down to attend a family member’s wedding. She rented a vehicle from a company that we’ll affectionately refer to as “Not-Thrifty Rental” for the duration of this post (or NTR for short).   After the trip was over and I was going through some of the expenses, I noted NTR charged my wife for some “optional” coverage that she didn’t sign up for. I’m sure ...

There’s nothing more annoying than seeing that bright engine light pop-up on the dashboard out of the blue. “What do I do?” “Should I stop and check it out?” “Maybe it’s nothing.” “Will I damage the car if I keep driving?”  For the past month or two, I’ve lived with the bright light adorning my dash. It’s not that I’m too worried – but I have been hoping it would just ...

The end of September signifies that we are nearing the home stretch of 2017, and the need to finish strong the last three months of year with our blog. Having goals and reporting on them really helps put perspective on what needs to be done and how much more I need to push it. This past month we continued to put all our efforts into paying off the mortgage, and it ...

There are a lot of money management gurus and courses out there these days. From Dave Ramsey to Suzie Orman, and more – all have their own unique take on how we should manage our personal finances better. While we may be considered “minor prophets” in this whole arena – we too are trying to convince readers of a better way. I don’t need to tell you there isn’t a shortage of ...

Growing up on the farm, my Grandpa was a stickler for doing maintenance on all the machinery before we headed out to the field. He was always greasing some wheel bearings or checking the oil levels. He was a big believer that regular maintenance would save you a lot more money over the long term as opposed to paying for major overhauls or replacing a worn out piece of equipment. Watching ...

Every couple of months, I go and check my savings account to see what type of interest is paid out on top of my balance. And, this is what I typically see: Not only is it small to read (sorry), but the interest paid is just as small. If you had to squint your eyes to see it, I know how you feel. I’ve been squinting at the piddly amounts of ...
