Cyber Monday 1
Hey everyone, I wasn’t planning to do a post on #CyberMonday… however, in my previous posts I mentioned that a LEGO Ninjago set was very unlikely ever go on sale. However, Amazon proved me wrong with their LEGO Deal of the Day today for Cyber Monday. Let’s jump in: The Temple of Airjitzu which normally has an MSRP of $199.95 and is NEVER on sale for less than that is $137.02 for today only. That’s […]

Stealth Wealth
Hey guys, it’s Finance Fridays again… and it’s actually Black Friday, which is kind of the poster child for consumerism and materialism.

For those interested, here is an excerpt about its Stealth characteristics: Stealth The B-2’s engines are buried within its wing to conceal the […]

Falling Off the Wagon
Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays today. Today I’m going to do some introspection and talk about “Falling Off the Wagon“. So, you may recall a few months ago I did a post called “Trimming the Fat“. It was mostly based around cutting out extra stuff I didn’t need in order to keep my budget efficient. Additionally, it had the added benefit of allowing me to exercise my Value Cost Ratio more. I was able to stick […]

iPhone X 1
Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays again. It’s been awhile since I did my impressions of the iPhone X, back in mid September. Well, the pre-order happened and I managed to snag 2, one for my wife and one for me. And now, it’s time for Average Joe’s Final iPhone X Review. First things first: I don’t want people to think I can just blow $1150 on a phone (twice!) whenever I feel like it. This […]
