Sunday When I walked into the Tesla store, I wasn't sure I'd actually be able to buy the car there. I know there are many states that prohibit Tesla from selling directly to the public and I wasn't sure if Washington was one of them. My plan was to visit the store, see the color my wife was raving about, get any questions answered, then go home and place my ...

 A couple weeks ago, my wife came back from the mall and said "I saw the color of the Tesla we’re going to buy!" This was a small joke between us because she and I could not agree on what color our future car should be. I wanted blue (my last two cars have been blue) and she wanted silver (her last two cars have been silver). I am opposed ...

My wife and I got a text from our daughter the other day that said"Yo peeps. I need more money!"In further texts, composed in a similarly elegant style, she explained that she wanted to start buying some clothes and other items. She wasn’t just asking for a handout. She was looking for more work to do to earn money.In fairness, it was probably time to revisit this subject. We haven’t ...

My Tesla just got a little bit more expensive.According to Ars Technica, Tesla has now sold enough cars in the US that the $7,500 tax credit is starting to get phased out. Once Tesla sold 200,000 vehicles, the phase out period starts.For the remainder of 2018, if you buy a Tesla and it is delivered before the end of the year, you can still get the full $7,500 tax credit. ...

Balancing your checkbook is one of the most boring things a person can do.  It's the brushing your teeth of the finance world. You know you should do it but it's kinda a pain in the butt and if you skip it once in a while, is it really going to matter?And it's not just bank statements that need to be balanced, or at the very least, reviewed. Any statement ...

It’s been just over 4 years since I started this blog and I thought it would be a good time to take a little look back at just how far I have come (and how far I have to go).My first savings update was in May 2014 and I had saved about $4,880. I think at the time, I was saving about $100 a month of my paycheck income towards ...
