Stop Multitasking I hate to break it to you, but you probably can’t multitask. Very few people have the actual ability to multitask, so for ...

Let’s be honest, we could all be better at finances. And by “we could all be better at finances” I clearly mean I could be better at finances. Every year between Christmas and New Years I take time to reflect on the past year and decide what I’m going to do better (and by that I obviously mean what I’m going to try to do better). And I sent some ...

The New Year is here and, as always, I’m thinking about finances. Specifically, how to save more money. Saving money can be a challenge, but it might be a tad bit easier if you make a game out of it. Or, the flipside to that is if you have a goal you’re trying to reach. So, why not try out a savings challenge? I’ve scoured the internet and decided on four ...

Have you ever noticed that after Christmas sales on some things are amazing? While there are a lot of great sales out there, especially during Black Friday, there might be a good reason to wait until January to dish out for specific items. Here are the best things to buy after Christmas. Holiday Decorations After the holiday season stores are itching to unload their holiday decorations so the after Christmas sales are exceptional ...

It’s the end of the year which means it’s the perfect time for you to be thinking about your budget. And before you firm up your budget, there are a few budget categories you should forget that are often forgotten. So before you’ve pressed “save” and dust your hands off, make sure you’ve included these personal budget categories: Entertainment Expenses Going out for dinner with friends or catching a flick at the ...

Credit score. It just makes me shiver to even think about looking at my credit score, knowing I likely have bad credit (or at least less than good credit). Nothing good can ever come of opening boxes that you know should stay closed! Except that your score is important. You need it to do everything from renting an apartment to buying a car.

Crypto currencies have been around for more than a decade but their popularity as a trading vehicle has recently gained notoriety. Crypto currencies are digital currencies and are not backed by a country. This lies in comparison to sovereign currencies which are backed by a central bank and are geared to handle payments throughout a specific country.  Many believe there are several benefits to using crypto currencies as a vehicle ...

There are so many bad money habits out there. I’d imagine you could probably name a few of your worst without really putting a lot of thought into it. I have some particularly crappy ones, and while I’ve made a lot of progress on them in the past year or two I still definitely have a ways to go. Since the year is ending and everyone, for the first few weeks ...
