This little-known program is truly amazing! We’ve booked weeklong resort stays with 3 bedrooms and full-kitchens in  New-Hampshire, Florida and the Poconos for as cheap as $20/night. The Armed Forces Vacations(AFV) Club is a free program for Active-Duty, Reserve Military Members as well as DoD Civilians like me. The standard deal for the AFV Club is weeklong stays all around the world(200,000+ resort accommodations) for $349. However twice a year they seem to ...

Let’s say that you just graduated college and landed yourself a $50,000 job. A lot of people think that is more money than they could ever hope to spend. That they’ll be able to pay down their student loans, live in a nice place, and buy whatever they want and still be able to save! Is this true? Well what is true is that 78% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck, and 71% are ...

This is the story of how we – a family of four on one income – house-hacked our way from $0 to $1million in real-estate in less than 2-years, and how just two houses bring in $100k/year in gross rents. Our Two PropertiesToday we closed on our second Investment-Rental-Property. A 3-Family home in North-Arlington, NJ; 15 minutes from NYC. We bought it for $350,000 and it appraised for $370,000(Low in my opinion). Our ...

For my wife and I, one of our greatest passions is traveling. Like many others, we were frustrated with the high cost of airfare and lodging. We would look for the cheapest fare by scanning flights on Kayak , but we knew there had to be a better way… Three years ago, we discovered Airline Credit Cards and have never paid for a flight since (saving us $10,000 in flights). In the ...

So a little disclaimer from the get-go; I rarely ever “read” books, I usually just listen to audiobooks and have made listening a habit since the 5th grade. I like the flexibility of audiobooks: I can be driving, walking, biking, running, cleaning, fixing, or any monotonous task and be “reading”. It’s funny, I used to walk around my town and listen to audiobooks, and now when I walk by that same path ...

First of all, if the company you work for offers a match with their 401k or other retirement plan, do that first! My company offers a dollar-for-dollar match for the first 5% of my salary that I invest. That means I double my money, making instant 100% returns on top of what I would make in the financial markets. Who doesn’t want Free Money!? After that, pay off all your high-interest ...

The SMART scholarship changed my life. Prior to winning I was flipping cars just to pay my way through college. The scholarship paid for my full tuition. On top of that, I received $25k/year which was paid out in monthly checks of $2,083. It also guaranteed a job for me at the Department of Defense(DoD) after I graduated. What’s the Catch? Requires that you be currently enrolled in college pursuing a STEM(Science, Technology, ...
