Who killed my Halloween?

Who killed my Halloween?

Today a lot of people celebrate Halloween all over the world. Nowadays my homeland is included, but that was not always the case. Let me introduce you my relationship with Halloween. The origins I hope you know the origins of this celebration (if not, Wikipedia is your friend), and you can see farther from the commercially boosted, candy sweating reality. It seems there are two “clubs” around here, who are for Halloween and who are against it. I have to…

Funny Friday – Weekly Roundup

Funny Friday – Weekly Roundup

This week seemed a dizzy rush for me all along, spiced with depressing weather and sleep deprivation. I will not bore you with the details as this Friday is supposed to be another funny one, so let me just state it has something to do with kids, event planning, and work. Don’t know about you, but most of the times the most peaceful moments of the day are those when I browse through my Feedly list of posts to read…

Money Map Of A Non-Budgeter

Money Map Of A Non-Budgeter

Two weeks ago I confessed that I am a non-budgeter. I tried multiple ways and failed miserably. When I tried to propagate the task of tracking our expenses in an app to my wife her instant question put things into different light. “If I do that and you will see everything in the app what would that change?”. My answer was simply “nothing”. This was the moment when I realized that through the years we half-consciously developed a system which…

Funny Friday – Disney Princess Edition

Funny Friday – Disney Princess Edition

This week I found this awesome series called “Kids Talk” from the LadyInTheBlack. I have read all of them at once and in the last post (which is heartwarming, you should check out) found a link to this similarly awesome article about “The Economic Strategies of Disney Princesses” from Peggy over at BitchesGetRiches (this blog name worth a look itself). So I went on and I got charmed. Maybe I am biased on the topic, but it was one of…

The only thing I don’t get about reaching FIRE

The only thing I don’t get about reaching FIRE

While scanning through a lot of personal finance blogs and implementing the relevant changes in our life it seems there is a recurring topic which is discussed all over and over again, but I cannot really understand how can this even be a concern. This topic is the fear about filling all the free time you will have when you reach FIRE. Maybe it is only me, but I see a myriad of opportunities to chase if I ever reach…

Funny Friday – Equifax Edition

Funny Friday – Equifax Edition

Happy Friday the 13th everyone When I was brainstorming for today’s post I really wanted to target this special day. Unfortunately, my research did not provide me enough financially related (and funny) information to be able to tailor a whole article around the topic. Anyway, I just leave here the only one I fabricated. I love you Jason, please don’t come after me! 😃 This date is associated with bad luck, so I was thinking maybe I should make some bad…

The Best Budget I Never Had

The Best Budget I Never Had

Do you even budget? I have a confession. I don’t budget. Or not really. I have tried. Multiple ways. And I am not trying anymore. Here lies the story which tells why. When you get… “financially confused”, start digging the internet and end up at personal finance blogs this is the first thing they “tell you”. -Do you have a budget? -Uhhmm… No. -What on earth, you should have one. Go, do it now. -Well, Ok… So I did and…

Funny Friday – Rushmore Edition

Funny Friday – Rushmore Edition

This week I was struggling with the topic and the content for the Funny Friday. Was kind of busy week both at home and at work and to bring more complexity to the equation 3/4 of the family caught a cold. I was afraid that I will fail in consistency so soon. Then today MySonsFather posted his epic series starter post “My Financial Mount Rushmore” and saved the day. In metaphor with the sculptures of the four presidents, he collected…

The best investment advice I can give

The best investment advice I can give

Probably you read already my introductory post and guessed so far that I am not a superstar investor. Thus don’t expect me sharing my ultimate 2000% earner super-hot-handpicked-stock-portfolio or a user manual for how to grow magic beans properly. There are smarter and more skilled bloggers and advisors who can fill this void. To be honest until my thirties from the trinity of Earn-Save-Invest principle only the former two was obvious to me. Earn As a kid, I earned money doing…
