Summer Days of the Future Past


I’ve been lagging a lot the past few months on the blog.

With the summer months (and my newish job) it’s been difficult dedicating time to write. I’ve been blogging for over a year and I’ve realized that I don’t necessarily like writing, but I LOVE having written. It’s time for me to get back to writing. Continue reading

Your Budget, Your Life

File Aug 26, 12 26 11 AM

I was recently interviewed in My Money Counts in which I discuss my relationship with my wife when it comes to managing our finances. If you haven’t done so, please check it out! Thanks Pamela for featuring me🙂

In a previous life (i.e. 3 years ago), I couldn’t wrap my head around budgeting. This was coming from a guy who worked in finance and could Index/Match with the best of them. As a number crunching desk jockey I spend my days working in Excel. I had zero desire to create a budget spreadsheet to manage our finances.  Continue reading

While I’m pretty open to trying anything to save some money, the one thing I can’t get myself to do is couponing. Unless the coupon is right in front of me or is something I can quickly Google for online, I’ll pass. Continue reading

Finding Your Why

Since starting the blog, more people have come up to me about the challenges they face when it comes to managing their finances. I’ve heard it all – it’s too hard, too boring, too complicated. Things like saving, investing, or retirement are foreign concepts to a lot of people. I was that way for most of my life. Continue reading
