Last week I briefly touched on a new e-book package that just came out that was written by Adam Baker, the mind behind the entertaining blog, ManVsDebt.com. The e-book talks about a topic that I know pretty well, selling your stuff to make a bit of extra cash. A couple of years ago my wife […]
Over the past year or so I’ve written quite a few reviews of online banks, talking about the histories and features of each respective financial establishment. Over the past year we’ve opened two separate savings accounts, one at Ally Bank since it currently enjoys one of the higher rates of interest, and one at Capital […]
If you have a small business, the last thing you want to do is focus on accounting. Instead, you probably would rather focus on your work – what you love to do for a living! Accounting has been one of those business tasks that usually gets put on the back-burner. For those of us who […]
Discover Bank has some of the highest interest rates in the country and all of their accounts are FDIC insured. They definitely have a solid bank offering.
A while back I started looking for a new high yield savings account to put our emergency fund in so that it would at least gain a little bit of interest while it sat in an account. We had the money sitting in an account at Bank of America, and last week I relayed my […]

I never saved up enough money to pay for gifts for my immediate family, friends and relatives. […]

As I continue my search to find the best high yield savings accounts for our family, one that keeps showing up on my radar and that seems to have an extremely strong reputation is the online savings accounts from HSBC Advance. HSBC Advance doesn’t have branches, the accounts are online only – but it is […]
This past week while I was on vacation I finally had the chance to read a book that I’ve been meaning to read for a while. The book, Secrets of a Stingy Scoundrel: 100 Dirty Little Money-Grubbing Secrets, by Phil Villarreal asks the question, “How far would you go to save money?“. If you’re anything […]
A week or so ago I talked about how I had opened a new online high yield savings account with one of the personal finance blogosphere’s favorite banks, CapitalOne360. CapitalOne360 is great because of a variety of factors, but for me the ability to set up sub-accounts, and to budget using their automatic withdrawals to […]
As I mentioned in a previous posting on high yield savings accounts, lately I’ve been looking for a new online bank where we can put our money. Our current savings account is with the same company as our mortgage (Bank of America), and I decided that I wanted our savings to be at a different […]
