It feels little weird still calling ourselves “first time landlords” in the title since we’ve been doing this for four years now. But I was intending these for any average Joe looking to get into rental properties as an example of the types of income and expenses you could expect, so I think I’ll stick […] ...

Who’s been a bad blogger? Me! Me! This is the first time my quarterly expense report has been late. I’ve always delivered on the first day following the end of the quarter, and here it is, weeks late. For that I am truly sorry and I shall commit personal finance seppuku to demonstrate my sorrow. […] ...

Last year, I started hearing about a new and different food delivery service: Misfit Market. We’ve mostly stayed away from these companies and continue to get our groceries from the supermarket or farmer’s market. We did get a coupon for meal kit delivery service Hello Fresh once, so we did that for a few weeks […] ...

We spent a solid two weeks on the other side of the globe this quarter. Two years ago, we went to Thailand in January for ten days and came back all of $900 lighter. This time we got out of the freezing northeast and went to Malaysia, Singapore, and Hong Kong. I have yet to […] ...

Hi everyone. Norm coming to you live from Ridinkulous Headquarters from a new (to me) laptop and a newly configured WordPress. These things, along writing so intermittently, are throwing me for a loop, so excuse me if I sound a little hoarse. Things have been chugging along here as usual. Since I last wrote at […] ...

Happy 2019, Ridinkuloids! I hope you just wrapped up a prosperous 2018 and are set to blast off into 2019 being more frugal than ever before. We spent our New Years Day cleaning up a newly vacant apartment so that it can be rented again. Our expenses for the past year ended up looking much […] ...

I have been derelict, dear readers, in keeping you all apprised of our recent financial doings here at Ridinkulous HQ. Truth is, it is very boring. When you’re on course for financial freedom, I find it easy to run out of things to say, and I’m very wary of repeating myself. But I just had […] ...

This was a fairly somber summer as far as summers go. It kicked off with us having to put down our dog Maeby on the last day of June. The bill for that came this quarter, which you will see below. We spent the 4th of July at the grandparents’ house down on the farm, […] ...

I’ve been tracking our net worth since 2007, and I include real estate equity in the total. But what is that equity exactly? That’s the question today. The debt tied to your house is easy to know. Your bank politely reminds you of it each month! But what the heck is the value of what […] ...

Side gigs come in many shapes and sizes. Some people make jewelry, some people write a blog, some people even sell paintings depicting scenes from Nintendo games. But what they should all have in common is that you enjoy doing them, and that they make a nominal-to-substantial amount of money. So is what I’m about […] ...
