Posted on October 22, 2012 | 1 CommentI used to believe that if I earned a lot of money, at least $75,000 – $100,00 I’d be set for life financially. It wasn’t until I was in $60,000 debt from my fancy degree, earning $65,000 a year (a very good salary in my...
Posted on August 20, 2012 | 7 CommentsI find it very interesting that everyone has such different views on what is a comfortable amount of money to spend on living expenses. People who are fairly frugal are usually categorized as ramen-eating, penny pinching, student-like cheapos who don’t have any fun at all...

Posted on May 21, 2012 | 13 CommentsControversial title, right? What I mean by that, is many people (myself included) are under a general belief that saving as much as you can in every area, is the best PF thing you can possibly do. What we fail to mention is that we...
Posted on April 23, 2012 | 5 CommentsFor a first time budgeter, cutting back on expenses can be daunting: where do you cut? why? how? and what is the best way to use that money? I am here to suggest that you start with the hardest categories first, so that you get...
Posted on April 18, 2012 | 3 CommentsLately, there’s been a lot of talk around the personal finance interwebs about passive income. And I can understand why. Passive income is generated while you’re lounging on the beach, playing with your kids, enjoying a good night’s sleep, or doing anything under the sky...
