Hey freedom fighters!  I’ve got a guest post today from Brent Truitt, a full time internet marketer and part time blogger.  Brent blogs over at DebtFiles.com, where he shares the stories of real people and their struggles with debt.  Brent has a very entertaining writing style, (trust me, you won’t be bored!) so when I had the chance to host him on this site, I jumped at it.   One of my ...

Ah, the month of September!  To me, it represents a return to order, to structure.  After all, for families with children, it’s back-to-school season, which acts as a reality check of sorts for everyone involved. It’s our reminder that summer’s nonconforming ways have come and gone.

Even if you’re not a sports fan, there’s a good chance you’ve heard the saying, “Offence wins games, defence wins championships.”  It’s a long held cliche in the world of sports, which suggests that the team that takes a defence-first approach is the one more apt to go all the way.

Hey everyone!  Well, it’s official.…this blog is one year old!  Mystery Money Man went live on August 20th, 2016. During the past couple of weeks I thought about how I should mark this personal blogging milestone. I realized that other, more savvy bloggers than myself, would probably have some pretty cool stuff lined up. They might do a giveaway, launch a survey, or take their readers on a journey through the ...

Hey everyone!  I’ve got a guest post for you today from my friend, Deann Rebello, who blogs over at BearinForest.com.  Camping is one of our family’s favourite things, but like anything else, it can get pretty expensive.  In this article, Deann provides some great advice on how anyone can go camping on a budget. Enjoy!     I know how camping can get quite expensive, especially with the pricey tools and equipment you think you need to ...
