Weekly Recap – July 19th, 2013

Weekly Recap – July 19th, 2013There is camel racing at Canterbury Park this weekend that we may go to. It sounds like fun!
I had another busy week at work, so I’m sorry if I’ve been slacking on the commenting a bit.  We released our 2nd quarter earnings and everything went smoothly, so that’s always nice.  My wife and I are going to relax again this weekend before we have stuff planned for the next 6 weekends after that…

My son has his end of the season baseball tournament this weekend.  I very much enjoy watching him play, so this is going to be a fun weekend.  It seems odd to me that the season is over, and we’re barely past the midway point of July, but I think they do it this way to stagger the tournaments of the various age groups, and because football practices usually get into full swing in August…

– weonlydothisonce.com

How Much Money Should You Save?Over coffee this morning, my friend asked me if I take requests for blog posts.  I never thought about it before, but I asked him what he had in mind.  He told me that he has been looking for solid info about what to do with his money once his debt has been paid off.
Before I go any further, let me just say that it is impossible for anyone to give blanket financial advice that works for everyone…

Why I Love My New Smartphone

– eyesonthedollar.com

Why I Love My New SmartphoneI had to renew my phone package recently, and I certainly went through several weeks of searching and asking questions while trying to decide what to do. Readers helped me decide that having good coverage was a necessity, so I had to sign up for the dreaded contract to actually make and receive calls in all the rural places I frequent…

Top Personal Finance Articles #23

– monsterpiggybank.com

Top Personal Finance Articles #23This morning whilst brushing my teeth I managed to snap the bit of skin between my upper gum and my lip. Not only did it bleed profusely, but it hurt like hell! I was too busy chatting with my brother via Whatsapp on my mobile and wasn’t paying attention to what I was doing. That will teach me to try and multitask!

In other less bloody news – I have taken sometime for myself lately away from the internet and blogging to watch the Ashes (Cricket for those of you who don’t know what it is)…

How 4 Months Could Have Cost Us Over $20,000Sometimes I am blown away by how fast time flies. The other thing that blows me away is how quickly things change. The combination of these two facts of life had me thinking about our recent home purchase and how much it would have changed if we had just waited four more months to make the same exact transaction…

Loans and a Nurse’s Budget

Loans and a Nurse’s BudgetHey everyone! Happy Friday. Today, I have another Reader Question post. She complimented me from the very beginning so how could I say no to helping her out?!
I always like help readers out, but I am not expert/professional, so that’s why I always enjoy publishing my reader question posts.
As teachers would always say in school “if one person has a question, multiple people most likely are wondering the same…

Pet Insurance: A Tale of Two DogsPet Insurance: A Tale of Two Dogs
Club Thrifty – Stop spending. Start living.Pablo and Hammie….Best Friends Forever
Lately, I’ve been hearing a lot about pet insurance in the blogosphere.  The stories generally fall into one of three categories; a) people think that pet insurance is a ridiculous idea, or b) people bought pet insurance and are glad they did, or b) people bought pet insurance hoping that it will be useful at some point during their pet’s lives…

Fly Smaller Airports to Save Hundreds

– edwardantrobus.com

(Photo credit: Wikipedia)
This September I will be attending my best friend’s wedding in Philadelphia. The only problem is that two round-trip tickets from Denver to Philadelphia cost more than I make in a week. So we set out to see if we could figure out a cheaper way to travel. And we did.
The traditional model of air travel has been travel between major hubs with connecting flights to smaller airports from the hubs…

Debt-free? Don’t get complacent!

– johnnymoneyseed.com

Debt-free? Don’t get complacent!I love when I hear success stories about normal people paying off their Debt. It proves that you don’t need to be a millionaire, a financial genius or even a Johnny Moneyseed to make financial dreams come true. Whether your goal is to simply pay off a credit card or to Retire Early, individual financial successes should always be celebrated…

Weekly roundup: Summer fun, summer spending and South Jersey
Happy Friday Dinks. It’s summer time and I am loving it. Even though I am a reformed spend-a-holic I still find myself spending more money during the summer than I do during the winter. Is this the same for you?
There are so many more fun activities to do in the summer such as summer vacations, backyard barbeques, pool parties, weekend road trips and of course evenings on patios drinking with friends…

Good Customer Service = Loyal Customers

– studentdebtsurvivor.com

Several months back I was putting on my mask doing my makeup when I ran out of mascara. Because I’m a couponer, I have a pretty decent stockpile. OK, not really a stockpile, per se, because nobody needs a stockpile of mascara unless you’re Tammy Faye Baker (RIP) or a makeup artist. I’m neither, so basically I have a shoebox size rubbermaid container, filled with makeup that I’ve purchased at deep discounts with coupons…
