What if you Invested Instead

What if you Invested Instead

So a couple weeks ago, I wrote a blog post, My Laziness cost me $20K. And it got me thinking about how often do we let these types of opportunities slip by. Are you making a $20K mistake and not even know it? (I dunno, so you better read it..bahah.) Sometimes we might fight off the urge to buy new shoes, new Target home décor, or another Alexa, which is good. Don’t buy stuff you don’t need, which ugh, can…

Save, Splurge, or Regret- January

Save, Splurge, or Regret- January

So breaking news, Bruno Mars won big at 2018 Grammy Awards for Record of the Year and Album of Year for “24K Magic.” Lena Dunham’s ex boyfriend, Jack Antanoff, is now dating a model. Barf. Oh, and now you get to read about how I spend my money. This is Save, Splurge, or Regret. Save- I am pretty sensitive from motion sickness. In fact, I have gotten nauseous from watching movies at the theater (very lame). So I used to…

Last 15 things I bought on Amazon

Last 15 things I bought on Amazon

Like most people, I buy a lot of crap on Amazon. Some things are everyday things that are more convenient to order, because I don’t have a car. Other things, I buy because I have no idea where else I could get these things. And some things, I buy and ask myself later, why did I buy that?? Anyway, here are the last 15 things that I bought on Amazon, because I personally am snoopy and like to see what…

$6000 Update- January 2018

Here is the update for January 18. For those of you that are new, last summer I was looking into investing using one of these Silicon Valley financial company startups. I was reading reviews based on offers, fees, investment minimum, etc., but I couldn’t find anything on how well they performed. Therefore, I conducted my own $1000 investment experiment where I invest $1000 through each of the companies listed in the charts below. I made a few $1000 investments back on…

Basic B* Financial Plan

Basic B* Financial Plan

It is a new year, and this is the time when people put action towards their goals so they can forget about them next month. I too am doing this; I have started my second week of meal prepping. Sunday I made tacos. I meal prepped chicken and ground beef, got canned corn and refried beans, cut up grape tomatoes and lettuce, purchased corn and crunchy tortillas. I even made rice, which I froze. This week I’ve had tacos, taco…

My Laziness cost me $20K

My Laziness cost me $20K

I am kind of lazy. I don’t like making my bed. I don’t like hand-washing my dishes (and like why, I have a dishwasher, which I don’t like emptying). I don’t like cleaning (Roomba is my homeboy). I am even thinking of getting another Alexa because I am too lazy to keep walking into the living room to ask it questions (but I am also cheap, so do I reeeallllly need another Alexa? TBD). Sometimes, I will be sitting on…
