Its that time of year again Sparky!  Decorations apperar, snow covers the leaves that I was too lazy to rake, and overspending is in full swing.   The media creates a ton of pressure to provide extravagant meals, host lavish parties, and give out the nicest gifts.  Tis the season, after all. Then expenses crop up that you didn’t even see coming! The other night while watching “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” I noticed ...

As the years go by quicker it can be easy to overlook all of the wonderful experiences I’ve had.  It can also be easy to forget that Thanksgiving is a time for reflection and gratitude, even though that concept is practically baked into the title.  This year I decided to write about 31 things I’m thankful for, which is appropriate considering I’m 31:) 1. Family My immediate family (wife and kid), ...

In honor of my 7-month blog-a-versary (blog anniversary), I’ve decided to pull back the curtain a bit.  I’m going to reveal 7 facts that I’ve learned while blogging, facts that other bloggers won’t tell you:0 So without further ado, here we go! 1) Designing a blog while only using free WordPress templates is hard.  Really.  Really.  Hard. A lot of blogs that are popular and commonly read are utilizing some sort of ...

Recently I was reading a journal I wrote in 2014.  As I skimmed past insights from when we were building I thought this may make a pretty good blog post.  Something like “The 5 Things You Need To Know Before Building A House,” sounded pretty good to me. *I also realized that I was a lot wiser back then;) 1) You can do things you never thought possible with a ...

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 ...
