The Christmas Aftermath

So I’ve been trying to tally up my spending for the holiday season and I lost count somewhere over $6,000 and I honestly don’t know what the total tab has been.  So here’s a quick run down of the holiday shopping list. Samsung 55″ LED TV w/BluRay player $2200 Vizio 47″ LED TV $900 3 […]

Samsung App Store Officially Sucks

Boy, I am seriously beginning to regret my Samsung TV purchase.  Although the picture quality is great, the additional premium I paid for the Samsung App Store and Internet stuff is total crap.    Fortunately, I got NetFlix to work fairly easily and that’s about 90% of my usage as far as internet apps on […]

Avoid Samsung Network Devices Like The Plague!

So a few days into my new purchase of a Samsung 55″ 7100 LED and free Samsung BluRay BD-C6800, I am sorely disappointed with Samsung’s Internet based devices.   Honestly, I think Samsung is overwhelmed by huge demand or they are the most incompetent company on the planet.    I couldn’t get my Samsung BluRay player to […]

Bought A New 55″ LED 3-D TV

So Costco has a great bundle that includes a Samsung 55″ 3D 240hz LED TV w/ free BluRay player and 3-D starter kit for a little over $2,000 and I couldn’t help but pick one up.   I took it home and setup it up and the picture is simply amazing.   The screen is so large […]

Another MBA Semester Completed

At my current rate and my recent change to get two MBA’s for the price of one, I anticipate I’ll be done by 2013 instead of 2012.   Of course, I could take a bigger course load, go to school during the summer and be done sooner but I love getting student loan money semester after […]

Why You Should Prepare Now For The Upcoming Market Crash!

It is with near mathematical certainty that the stock market is going to crash and crash hard in the near future.   The Fed continues to pump money and talk of QE2 and QE3 ad infinitum.  Just ask yourself one thing:   What is going to happen when the funny money spigot is shut off? The ONLY […]

Costco, I Wish I Knew How To Quit You!

So Costco does it again and doesn’t let me down.   A few days ago I bought a $300 New Zealand wool rug and today I got Costco coupons for $60 off the same rug!  Went into Costco and asked for a credit and was given one with no hassles!     I love Costco!  I wish I […]

My Decluttering Project

Since December 1, I have been on a mission to de-clutter my house.  Every single room in our four bedroom house, one office house is packed with stuff that has been sitting in a particular location for years.   We started with the office and found medical records from 2004 and earlier so project “shred” for […]

Chase Eliminating Free Checking?

I got a notice in the mail today that my last remaining Chase Bank account was “changing” in February.  Of notable concern was a new $12 monthly fee if I didn’t maintain a balance of $1500 or if I didn’t have a direct deposit of at least $500 per month.   It seems like I will […]
