  • Bird on a Budget

    October 12, 2010|By David Lester

    Happy Canadian Thanksgiving everyone!  My Thanksgiving was ah-mazing.  It was the first time that I hosted dinner with all the fixin’s and everyone said I did an amazing job.  When I try something new I like to do it perfect the very fist time so that everyone has a great time and on a budget.

  • 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.

    September 8, 2010|By David Lester

    Everyday I wake up and think about all of the fun things that I’m going to do today.  I have found that the key to happiness is to figure out what makes you happy, and then build those things into your daily routine. Life should be a smorgasbord: everyday you should get to choose from a giant […]

  • Sir Richard Branson’s Bundles

    August 31, 2010|By David Lester

    Sir Richard Branson is a great guy.  He went from being a young middle class English dude to being a huge entrepreneur, being knighted, changing industries, the world even.  I read his autobiography a few years back and the one thing that stuck with me was his philosophy on growing his business.  I found it […]

  • Money is Power

    August 12, 2010|By David Lester

  • 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 […]

  • Shop Like A Dynamic Duo!

    July 21, 2010|By David Lester

    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 […]

  • Smoosh Your Smartphone Bill!

    July 14, 2010|By David Lester

    The one thing that I can’t live without today is my sexy smartphone.  It’s the first thing that I reach for when I wake up to see what the market is doing! I listen to music on it, I track my spending, I trade on it, the calendar tells me where to go or who […]
