I was a fairly ambitious teenager. One summer, I wrote a couple nearby golf courses asking for a job. I told ’em that I’d work for free – all they had to do was give me free golf. Sound like a deal huh' I thought so. Fortunately enough, of those 2 letters I sent out, one … ...

Six years ago I switched from Vonage to Ooma home phone service in an attempt to save money on our monthly phone bills. In February 2012, I determined that I’d had enough of the $35.75/month (after all the taxes and fees) I was paying with Vonage. At the time I’d had a couple of friends that … ...

I came across this interesting piece that originally appeared on fellow personal finance blogger, Financial Samurai’s website, about a couple (both lawyers) who earn $500k a year and still don’t have a lot of “leftover” at the end of the year – relatively speaking. The couple was open enough to share their income / expenses … ...

After a slow January with Airbnb, our income streams started to pick up steam and are continuing to grow! We continued to stay consistently above $1000 in extra income and our mortgage payoff is only three months away.

On March 6, 2008, I received a call from my mom and dad that no one wants to receive. Charlie: “Hello” Mom and Dad: “Charlie, it’s mom and dad.” (mom’s got the phone, and I can tell something’s wrong) Charlie: “What’s wrong' What happened' Did Grandpa die'” (more silence on the far end). Mom: (mom … ...

Do you remember that kid who always asked to come over so he or she could play with your stuff' Maybe you were that kid. Hey, no judgment here. Well actually, yes, a little judgement here (moocher). Truth-be-told, I recently realized that I was that kid (a 29 year old version)…with cable tv. I tried … ...

Have you been watching the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang' I love em – and will be glued to the set most evenings watching all the drama unfold. I think it’s always fun to watch excellence and people competing for their sports greatest honor. I’ve always wondered how many of the athletes support themselves during training (do they … ...

If you are reading this one of two thoughts are going through your head: “Man, I can’t wait to give ____ the box of candy and flowers tonight.“ Or, “Oh crap.” To that second guy/gal, we want to say: don’t worry – we got your back. Since you are the thrifty type and “free” is … ...

As I write this article I am sitting at Starbucks, and sipping on a Grande Pikes Place with no cream or sugar. Today I had no reason to stop at this particular Starbucks. Plainly put, it was a want. I was on my way to training this morning, and I wanted to grab some coffee and … ...
