Around the same time I decided to get my finances under control, I also started running.  It was a hobby to help me live long enough to actually enjoy a retirement, and to help me spend less time with video games.  Switching from my expensive video game hobby to running was one of the smartest things this dumb guy has … Read More The post Running for My Life & Saving for ...

Don’t be fooled by the decent gain this past month, our retirement accounts were gashed pretty hard last month.  We did fare a little bit better than the market overall, which was down by nearly 7.5%.  (Remember my post about the first day of the big decline?)

Every now and then when I travel, I have to decide on if I want to book a flight out of the local airport or drive to the larger airport 100 miles away.  Invariably the local airport will be more expensive.  But what is the break point for when the increased cost is “too much”?  How much personal value do … Read More The post Personal Value – How Much Is ...

The Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots have climbed to over $1.5 billion.  The Mega Millions is currently the 2nd largest jackpot at $970 million (a paltry $320,000,000 lump sum after federal taxes.)  The odds of winning the jackpot is 1 in 302 million, incredible odds that only becomes ridiculous when you consider the things that are more likely to … Read More The post I Already Won the Lottery appeared first ...

Did you notice the stock market dropped quite a bit yesterday?  Some of the news outlets were saying the Dow dropped by the 3rd highest amount in its entire history and we are heading for a market correction! A market correction is when an index falls 10% from a recent high. If you weren’t scared enough, now half of the … Read More The post The Sky Is Falling (maybe) – And That’s ...

Our Amazon Spending Is Out of Control In the last 12 years, we have spent $24,760.67 just on Amazon, most of those purchases occur outside of our budget. Maybe you caught my post about monthly subscriptions where I casually mentioned I had ordered 754 items off Amazon since I have been a Prime Subscriber.  For the last 140 months we … Read More The post Confessions of an Imperfect Saver #3 – The ...

October has been a month of adjustments.  We took what we learned in September and started making changes to positively impact our declining cash.  I am sticking to my prediction from my last net worth update that we will see improvement on the November update.  Until then, here is a good representation of what last month was like (last 2 … Read More The post Net Worth Update – October 2018 ...

Monthly Subscription Based Economy Subscription based companies are growing from 5-9 times faster than traditional companies.  Many traditional companies are now playing catch-up to regain some of the market share they have lost to these services. DirectTV Now (Netflix) Gillette Shave Club (Dollar Shave Club) AMC Stubz (Moviepass) And many more. All of these traditional companies are trying to avoid … Read More The post Are Your Monthly Subscriptions Getting Out of Control? appeared first on Millionaires ...
