Liquidity is King

August 25, 2011 · 47 comments

Dave Ramsey often repeats the popular phrase “Cash is king.” While I wont necessarily disagree with Dave, I’d be much more on-board if he said “Liquidity is King.” Two similar statements, but they mean a world of difference. Let’s look at an example… Say Girl Ninja and I have been diligent little savers and we […]

Take a leak on debt.

If my blogs url doesn’t give it away, let me spell it out for you… I – H-A-T-E- D-E-B-T. It hasn’t always been this way. Four years ago, I was impartial. I knew debt was bad news, but didn’t really know why. It wasn’t until I used this nifty little student loan calculator, that I […]

I’ll never understand why some married couples keep their finances separate (yes, that is me quasi-judging some of you). Maybe it’s the traditionalist in me, but when I asked Girl Ninja to marry me, I asked her to marry ALL of me. This includes (but is not limited to) my sense of style, my obsessive […]
