The “Stuff” Surplus Has Started; Like Taking Candy From Buybuy Baby

Did Somebody Say “Blue Light Special?” Great Ones, we’ve long talked up the average consumer’s willingness to overspend like no tomorrow. You might fancy yourself a thrifty shopper, but c’mon: Who doesn’t at least shell out for the good frozen pizza every once in a while? No? Call it a willingness, call it an active addiction … inflation has certainly made it difficult to “treat yourself,” however your budget defines that. (Especially with, you know … the sheer cost of existing.) But hey now, my fellow penny pinchers and coupon clippers: Discount sales are headed your way! Just … not[…]

There’s No Free Lunch — Especially on Wall Street

Back in the day, bars used to serve free lunches. However, there was a catch… The food was loaded with salt. Customers who ate the salty free lunch needed to buy beers to quench their thirst. The customers ended up spending a lot more for the beers than the lunch cost the owner. So, the free lunch wasn’t really free. In 1975, Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman wrote the book: There’s No Such Thing As a Free Lunch. It’s been out of print for a while. Copies of the book that are around today can sell for $800. The book[…]

A Bunch of Great $$$ Resources ✨ (Fire Meetups, Curation Sites, #VanLife, More)

Morning! Been helping a few readers find some things around the community and thought I’d share them with you too in case they help 🙂 One was looking for ways to connect with other like-minded people in the space, another was wondering if any other sites out there stream RSS feeds like we did back in the Rockstar Finance days, and then another’s about to head out on a massive road trip so I shot her a bunch of great articles around #VanLife to help inspire her. I also needed some help myself for good bookkeeping services out there as[…]

Frontier’s In Good Spirits; Juul Smokes The FDA; Life’s A Carnival Cruise

Spirits Having Flown I never fell in love so easily. Where the four winds blow, Wall Street carries on. I’d like to take you where my Spirit flies. Through the empty skies, we invest alone… Hmmm. Don’t tell me — I got this. Bee Gees, right? Is it “Spirits Having Flown” … from the (criminally underrated) album Spirits Having Flown? Congrats, well done. What was your first hint? I kid, I kid. Like Grandpa trying to find the lost Clive Cussler novel he lost somewhere between Terminals A and C … the Great Stuff gang was searching ‘round the market[…]

Always have a back up plan for stuff you buy!

Here’s something that’s really helped me over the years: I always have a back up plan for stuff I buy! Not stuff like groceries or other necessities you need to survive on this planet, but extras like “wants” or even some needs like clothing and Amazon purchases (hah). For example(s): ****** #1. Shoes. As you now know I’m a super fan boy of VANS, so usually if I find a pair that fits and is cheap – like from the thrift store or somewhere – I’ll buy it even if it’s not my favorite so long as it has a[…]

Simmer-Down Sunday: Smoke From A Distant Juul Fire

Who Will Save Your Lungs? The FDA’s living its life for you on TV. It says the Juul’s no good for you, and you agree. It says: “Hold those vape sales or wind up behind brick walls.” Says: “Come here, Altria, don’t care if you agree.” Another doctor’s bill, a lawyer’s bill. And here you are — just tryin’ to get your thrill. You know you love it if you put it in your chest, but who will save your lungs? Oh, good one, Great Stuff. You would play some bastardized Jewel to talk about the FDA banning concerning vape[…]

What My Toddler Taught Me About Crypto Investing

My son is in the midst of what parents aptly dub the “terrible twos.” He’s still months away from actually turning two. But that doesn’t hold him back at all. On the one hand, he’s teething, cranky and clingy. The next moment, he’s sweet and cuddly, loving and curious. Over the course of an hour, he has so many mood swings that I nearly have whiplash. It’s not unlike watching the crypto market over the past month. A brief relief rally had kicked off on Tuesday. But by Wednesday morning, bitcoin had slipped under $20,000 again as recession fears revived[…]

Ridiculous videos I made about money! (And some fun Q&As)

Morning! I hope you’re in search of some eye candy today as I’m serving it up hot! 😉 Stumbled across a bunch of ridiculously silly, yet somewhat helpful!, videos we created for All-Star Money last year, and thought you might enjoy the change from my novels here lately… These came about from pouring over 200 articles a day in the space, and then plucking out my favorites and doing a little skit around them. Which looks like they may have only taken about 17 minutes to produce, but oh no! These puppies took around 10 hours total EACH by the[…]
