It’s been pretty challenging to get myself to blog the past few months as I was a bit preoccupied, but a little someone has inspired me to write again…
According to this article on CNN, that’s around how much it’s going to cost me to raise Addie until she’s 17. Of course this doesn’t include all the fun stuff like college and when my daughter inevitably comes home after that to mooch from me and my wife for a few years until she gets a real job ;). With another baby on the way in April, we’re looking to spend a cool half million on diapers, formula, clothes, and extracurricular activities on these two little ones. Continue reading
After a long hiatus, I’m back on the keyboard. Didja miss me? Maybe a little bit? 😉
What has gone on in the past few months since I’ve been away? Let me see… Continue reading

As I slowly get back into writing a new post for the blog I wanted to share my guest interview that was featured today on my man Andrew’s blog Family Money Plan. Continue reading
I’ve been blogging about personal finance and fatherhood for over a year. I started this blog as a way to show people that this money stuff isn’t that complicated. You don’t need to be a doctor or lawyer to save, invest, or even retire early. All you need to do is pay attention. Continue reading
If you didn’t notice by now, I am ALL ABOUT saving and making money whenever I can. I save so that my family can spend on what we value most. Which if you’re not a regular reader to the blog it’s adventures, eating, and making sure Addie has a bright future.
