Pirates of the Cryptobbean

Ahoy, matey! You probably came here for some funny stories about Jack Sparrow and his homies. I have to tell ya, that you will have no luck this time as the title is just a (shark)clickbait. Unfortunately, this situation depicts the actual crypto world more accurately than you would think. Most of the people who venture into this strange land of uncertainty are daydreaming about the romantic, entertaining, happy ending stories. But I have to tell ya, there lies more…

Funny Friday – Stealth Wealth Edition

Funny Friday – Stealth Wealth Edition

Hey All, yes it seems I am still here. To be honest, I was not sure about continuing this Funny Friday series, however, these were the most popular here. It is a little bit hard to compose a whole set of memes and find a topic as most of the time inspiration comes randomly and for a single meme. This will highly impact the future of these series but will tell more about that next week. This week the situation…

A Tuesday Rant – The Six Figure Problem

A Tuesday Rant – The Six Figure Problem

I had different plans for today’s post, but then yesterday something happened. Liz from ChiefMomOfficer.com shared this article on twitter. I stated there that I don’t want to be rude so I will not go on a rant. But the topic did not let me rest so I decided to do so but try to keep myself from being rude. I really like the Thursday Rant series by Mr.1500 and how he handles this kind of topics so gave it…

My Stuff Evaluation Ruleset

My Stuff Evaluation Ruleset

Aside from some prolonged Black Friday / Cyber Monday offers we can say that the shopping craze is over. Or at least it has a halt until the final rush of massive Christmas shopping begins. Everybody knows his preferences, for me, it is to keep away from the whole madness as much as I can. But as you know that cannot be the case all the times, there are some occasions when you have to buy or replace everyday objects…

Random thoughts on Thanksgiving and Black Friday

Random thoughts on Thanksgiving and Black Friday

This week the long-awaited or long-hated (depends on your perspective) Thanksgiving and Black Friday will come. As I reported last week it’s over at our ends, they held it last weekend for some reason. This is not an event which I fanatically wait all year long, just another sales date when I check if only there is something on sale which I had plans on buying for a while. I did not want to waste any more words on the…

Getting Older, Getting Better

Getting Older, Getting Better

So I turned 33 yesterday. Don’t know about you, but for me, this is the time for self-reflection. If I have a couple minutes of silent free time (which is very rare) all these questions flush my mind immediately. Where am I? Am I satisfied with my life? Am I on the good track? What did I mess up? What are my goals? What are my options? Etc… If you have read some of my posts so far you probably…

Funny Friday – Kids Edition

<offtopic>This is not connecting to this Funny Friday episode, so you can skip it if you want. Earlier this week I wrote about my relationship with Halloween and that finally, I accepted it. Then it passed by without a single sign. This year I have seen no decorations, except in a supermarket. No kids in costumes wandering the streets and no one rang our bell for trick-or-treating. I was surprised and still don’t know why. Maybe never will.</offtopic> This week…

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…

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…
