I think gift cards are of the devil. They are easy to lose. When I receive them as gifts, I typically sell them for a loss on Raise.com. Maybe that makes me a horrible person, but I’ll take $18 in cash over $25 to a retailer I don’t visit. I realize there’s a bit of ...

I’m not a huge fan of wasting money, but my goal for the year (and life) is to let kids blow money as they see fit. My kids are the biggest fans in the world of Scooby Doo. Today, a new movie of Scooby Doo was released. Since Covid is still happening, the movie was ... Read more Digital Purchase of Movies The post Digital Purchase of Movies appeared first on ...

Since I don’t have anything wise or profound to say about the pandemic, how about another (trivial?) money saving post? Nothing like documenting how to save a hundred (or more) dollars a month to ease the pain of huge investment losses and 20% unemployment…   I first blogged about my cell phone strategy about 3 ...

Another month, another update. A few random comments. Good Reads/Listens/Watches Skid Row Marathon (link). A documentary about a judge helping to lift people out of homelessness through a shared hobby of running. One of the best movies I’ve seen in a while. It made me want to be a better person. (It’s on Amazon Prime). ... Read more Financial Update – Apr 2020 The post Financial Update – Apr 2020 appeared ...

I’m fortunate to have a job that allows me to work from home. That said, working from home makes for an interesting working environment. For example, I can hear every quarrel between my kids since my office (bedroom) is adjacent to the living room where my kids spend the entire day. 100 years from now, ...

Another month, another update. A few random comments. Good Reads/Listens/Watches Two good posts unpacking the $2T stimulus package: Kitces (link). GoCurryCracker (link). A subtle point to stimulus checks. The check issued in a couple weeks will be based on 2019 AGI if you’ve already filed and 2018 if not. If you have lower AGI in ...

It seems like a lifetime since my last post. I had an Xfinity Mobile review post drafted, but it feels entirely trivial to blog about how to save $100/month on cell phone bills when the world seems to be ending. Alas, that post will be released at a future date. The last few days have ... Read more Thoughts from the eye of the hurricane The post Thoughts from the eye ...

Another month, another update. A few random comments. Good Reads/Listens/Watches Interesting 2hr PBS Frontline report on Amazon. It’s worth watching (link). TL;DW – Amazon is big and powerful. Really big. Really powerful. Another Econtalk episode on healthcare economics (link). Fiscal health of each state in the US, published by a non-partisan think tank (link). Two ...
