DISCLAIMER:  This is a monthly net worth report.  I am currently using my bank’s website to track my net worth, along with the every dollar app and personal capital.  I do not include the value of my house but include the mortgage as a debt.  It is unlikely we will sell and I prefer liquidity to perceived value.  Now sit back, grab a beverage and enjoy comparing yourself to my numbers.  You’ll feel ...

In case you don’t know, I’m a big fan of Dave Ramsey’s baby steps.  Following them is one of the quickest ways to get out of debt. ***I like them so much that I’m going to break down the steps in a series called *Financial Basics.  In this series, I will be examining the process in greater detail and sharing some of my thoughts and opinions.  If you have little ...

The cheapest car to own is the one you own. Where I read that quote currently escapes me but I’ve heard it on multiple occasions. Hearing an applying are two entirely different things, however, and I’ve made some really dumb car purchases in the past.  Today I’m going to take a trip in the way-back-machine and exam every single vehicle I’ve owned. *This article was inspired by J$. Car #1: ...

Dear blog, I’m sorry. I haven’t written in a while.  I could make up some lame excuse. “It’s not you it’s me” or “I can’t dedicate the time needed to continue this relationship right now…” but that is simply not true. Sure.  I’ve been busy. Who isn’t' The truth is that I’ve gotten complacent. I let other priorities start taking up time and I’ve let myself become sloppy.  Dare I ...

Why is money so boring'  I know. I know. That statement may be slightly sacrilegious. Especially to put into print on a top-rated medium rated finance blog. But the truth is the truth. Money is boring. What it can do isn’t, but currency itself doesn’t exactly light your hair on fire. (J$ being the exception) Money is also extremely simple. I hear from Dave Ramsey all the time that money is only ...

I admit it.  Sometimes I let my health slide by the wayside.  I scarf down processed foods like it’s my job, stay up late, and neglect my bodies warning signals. It’s easy to ignore your health when you have it.  When things start breaking down we all go into freak out mode and binge on healthy related behaviors like there is no tomorrow… because let’s face it, there won’t always ...
