  • Give Away A Week’s Discretionary Spending And Profit!

    September 27, 2010|By David Lester

    This week I’ve decided to give away my weeks discretionary spending.  I spend about $600 a week on coffees, clothing, lunches, dinners, movies, gifts and going out with friends.  I’m on my own “Cash is King” plan where I take $300 out on Sunday night that lasts me until about Thursday and then I take […]

  • We’re Just Fancy Monkeys

    September 14, 2010|By David Lester

    From my experience with people and money I’ve decided we’re just fancy monkeys.  We respond by positive re-enforcement successfully and not very successfully to negative ones.  Negative re-enforcement will work for a short period of time but I can guarantee you that a banana will get you a monkey to do something faster than a […]

  • Soup’s On! Be Happy.

  • My Chosen Credit Card

    July 27, 2010|By David Lester

    If you’ve been following my blogs you’ll know that I prefer to use cash when I can.  I love hard currency for a number of reasons.  For instance I find that you spend less, you have a natural spending ceiling (it’s gone when it’s gone), you get better prices for big purchases, and it is […]

    One great way to cut your grocery and consumer packaged goods is to share the cost of a trip to Costco every few months. This is a crafty way to buy large portioned products and split them with a very special friend or loved one. My mom and I have this strategy down pat. We’re […]
