Reading Time: 3 Minutes What’s up everyone! Hope we’re all having an AWESOME weekend. What’d you guys get up to? Man, tell you what, I am so glad this heatwave in Sydney has passed. It got so hot sometimes that I actually couldn’t function as a human being… I think that’s when you know you need a time-out. When self-immolation turns from an interesting Wikipedia article into reality. I was ...

Reading Time: 3 Minutes What’s up fellow Frugal Samuraites! Hope we are all having a great week. Gonna be quick today cos I’m late to meet MrsFrugalSamurai, we’ve got a hot date “wink wink”. Ahem. Anyway, so in a mad rush I was thinking how to make this post as pointy as possible. Then EUREKA. I thought, what best than to share some of the resources and links which I’ve ...

Reading Time: 3 Minutes “Honey, we’re out of milk and bread”. Damnit I think, as I pick up the keys to head over to the shops. Hmm bread, bread… ah ha – gotcha. Now for some milk… oh look there’s thin-cut potato wedges on sale… Half an hour later, what was initially a two item shopping list turned into a trolley FULL of groceries which we don’t even need (c’mon ...

Reading Time: 2 Minutes What’s up everyone! Found this little beauty off the inter-webs, a good visual summary of where global markets ended for 2018… as you can see, unless you were invested in Qatar (standout), Peru or Russia, you would have been better to stash your cash under the mattress. Oh, and same goes for the defensive sectors of Healthcare and Utilities! Just goes to show that investing can ...

Reading Time: 4 Minutes Hey guys! How y’all doing! And how’s those new year resolutions coming along? Keep going! I’ve added a new one to our list – we have to find a new place to live. Pronto. Not by choice you see, but because we have this crazy neighbour next door who has been causing malicious property damage on our apartment level. The guy thought it was a good ...

Reading Time: 3 Minutes Hi everyone! Welcome back, welcome back. Gestures to an open fire crackling in the hearth. Hope we all had a fantastic New Year’s party – I know I did! And ouch, what a hangover right? We spent our NYE at our friend Emili’s (not her real name, so you’re safe Emily if you’re reading this), chomping on KFC (Korean Fried Chicken) and playing a multitude of ...

Reading Time: 4 Minutes Well guys it’s finally here aye. The end of 2019. Had to happen of course, I mean each year is the beginning of the rest of our lives and all that. In a bit of a philosophical mood as you can tell, just finished reading a post from a blogger who I respect and follow about his 2018. It was a fairly reflective and raw piece, ...

Reading Time: 3 Minutes What’s up guys! Are we all enjoying the holidays? I hope you guys are! Cos geebers, you wouldn’t believe the week I was having – just frigging WOW. Boy am I glad to see the back of that one. It was only when a work colleague mentioned on Friday that we are in the last week until Xmas, that I looked up from my desk and realized, ...

Reading Time: 5 Minutes What’s up guys! How’s your week going, year end is fast approaching GO GO GO! Haha, feels a bit like that doesn’t it? Something a bit different in today’s post – we have a guest blogger to wrap up the final part of our Bear Market Series (read the previous ones here, here, here and here). It’s Tom from www.investmentbasecamp.com Tom writes about investing, personal finance and ...

Reading Time: 5 Minutes Howdy guys! Good to be back in front of y’all on this sunny Sunday! I was getting a bit carried away with Netflix in bed there for a sec (will Mowgli ever re-join the pack? SO intense). But as much as I’m enthralled with the latest adaption of the Jungle Book and wolves with British accents, I think it’s time to get back to the second ...
