It’s the end of May and I am just getting around to writing a blog post about April.  I think I win the award for best “blogger” of the year.  A busy month of May pushed back my writing schedule. Going forward, blog posts should be more of a priority, but it can be so … Continue reading "Monthly Update – April 2018" ...

New Year’s resolutions. Yes, you read that right. It’s August, but I wanted to take some time to look back at goals I/we set for 2018. Truthfully, I don’t like resolutions. No one ever sticks to them, and arbitrarily starting them on the first of the year seems dumb. If you really want to make … Continue reading "I’m Trying" ...
Where has the summer gone' I lived the bachelor life for 3 of 4 weeks in July. The Mrs. was traveling for work in San Antonio and left me to get the new apartment set up. I did manage to sneak away and visit her for a long weekend. San Antonio was a cool city, … Continue reading "Monthly Update – July 2018" ...
It’s August and I’m just getting around to writing our June update. That either tells you how busy or how lazy I am. I’ll let you be the judge. We are 6 for 6 at being over budget as of the halfway point of 2018. More discipline or a budget adjustment are in order, and … Continue reading "Monthly Update – June 2018" ...
Another month down, and the year is almost halfway over. May was a jam packed month. We were busy preparing to sell our house. Moving things out to get it show ready, doing some fixes prior to the open house, and spending a lot of time cleaning. We had to throw in a Memorial Day … Continue reading "Monthly Update – May 2018" ...
I’ve previously written about my love of credit cards and travel rewards. Last month, we celebrated our one year churniversary. I consider myself quite adept in the credit card and churning space, and that is most likely due to my religious following of the r/churning subreddit and websites like Doctor of Credit. Since 3/18/17 we … Continue reading "Travel Rewards Anonymous" ...
March was the busiest month of the year so far.  It went by so fast that I don’t really remember what we spent money on :/ which usually isn’t a good sign.  I do know that we had some rather random, and one time bigger budget breaking (check out that alliteration) items, and if it … Continue reading "Monthly Update – March 2018" ...
Where we live, February is cold, dark, and snowy.  Due to the nature of my job, I always end up working more hours, and I feel like I never have enough time do what I want. Frankly, the only redeeming quality about February is that it’s only 28 or 29 days. On a positive note, … Continue reading "Monthly Update – February 2018" ...
Earlier this week I was reminiscing on the last couple of years.  I was curious to know how much we had previously contributed to retirement, and how much employer match we had received, and I never took the time to actually break out the numbers.  I graduated college in May of 2013, and Mrs. RTF … Continue reading "Looking Backward" ...
You’ve probably noticed that Mrs. RTF is MIA when it comes to blog posts.  You may even be wondering if she is a figment of my imagination.  I promise she is real (and the picture on our homepage is real wedding photo).  The majority of the posts will be probably be written by me, but … Continue reading "The Caped Crusader" ...
