I could make a full salary on Craigslist.

August 26, 2015

I’ve blogged many times about my love of Craigslist, and how I’ve used it to save money over the years. Over the last six weeks or so, I’ve been flipping furniture on CL and am shocked at just how profitable that can be.

So let’s just talk about the big elephant in the room.  Yes. I dropped off the face of the earth for the last two and a half months. And ya know what, it felt soooooooooo good. I wish I had some cool story about how I was doing awesome things that kept me so busy […]

This is why you buy when the market is breaking records

The Nasdaq hit an all time high yesterday, ending the day at 5,056. The previous record dated back to March 10th 2000, when the index was at 5,048.
