“Man, what can we do' Think about it…we’re stuck!”    M’s words hit me hard, like a figurative punch to the gut.  I shook my head slightly, lowering it into my chest.  But this time, something had changed.  Instead of the frustration that had become all too familiar,  I felt a new emotion rise up.    “No, no…NO!  I won’t ...

What happened'  November started so well.  Week one, I took time off.  My wife and I went away to a cabin in the woods for a couple of days, which was transformed into a winter wonderland with the season’s first snowfall.  It was magical.  Returning home, I had the most productive of weeks.  I played full time blogger, released three ...

Hey everyone!  Today, I’m introducing a term that I’ve coined ‘Exponential Frugality’.  My goal is to stretch your thinking on the value of frugal living. It’s a shift of mindset that has benefitted me, so I hope you find it helpful, or at the very least, thought provoking.  Enjoy!  You may or may not consider yourself a fugal person.  After all, ...

I have a confession to make. This past week, I came down with a MAJOR case of FINCON FOMO.  That’s right. This debilitating condition had me in it’s clutches for a few days, until I finally managed to wriggle myself from its grasp. Now, I realize that some of you are unfamiliar with both of these acronyms.  “What the h&%$ is a FINCON? FOMO?  Sounds like one crazy illness!” I can assure you, ...

Winter is on my brain this week, thanks to a major frugal win! Before I fill you in on all the money saving goodness, let’s address the years coldest season! I know what you’re probably thinking; it’s far too early to be mentioning snow and cold! If you live in Canada or the northern U.S. however, the reality is setting in, winter is just around the corner. The very thought brings out mixed ...

The past couple of weeks, I’ve begun to make a number of small changes to this blog.  My goal in all of this is simple:  to improve the reader experience for anyone visiting Mystery Money Man. This is, of course, an ongoing effort.  Over the past year, I’ve made improvements as I’ve become more proficient with the craft of blogging, and running a website.  While I still have a lot to ...

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. I love summer.  It’s always warm, and the days seem to last forever, which is perfect for spending vast quantities of time outdoors.  It’s also ...
