How to Save Lots of Time and Money: Hacking Your Everyday Necessities

This is a post I’ve been meaning to write for awhile, because it’s something that has really changed a lot of the recurring purchases I make.

One of my primary criticisms against coupons was that there is a continuous time investment that can put you into a mindset of “saving mode” instead of “earning mode.”

What I’m going to discuss today is very different – it’s something I’ve implemented in my life that actually saves me both time and money. It’s not for everyone, so you need to decide if this is something you want to implement for yourself.

My Online Income Report [November 2013]

Wow, this is the latest I’ve ever posted a monthly income report!

I’ve been super busy with work, family/holiday events, and getting my new site ready for its launch in January. I’m definitely in that phase where I’m working hard now to reap the benefits later.  They’re not going to come quickly, but they will come.  Soon enough.

Despite being busy with a million other things, I do believe it’s important to make time to reflect on the results of the previous month, so let’s get right to it.

7 Blogs I’m Thankful For (and 7 Posts You’ll Love)

Blogging around here has been a bit slow lately, with the holidays just around the corner and me focusing all my effort on getting a new site ready to launch.

With that said, I’m still reading a lot of good stuff.

Thanksgiving has come and gone, and what better way to say “thanks” than by featuring everything I’m currently enjoying?

I think you’ll enjoy these too.

My Online Income Report [October 2013]

This is going to be a weird income report, because while this is by far the worst month I’ve had in a long time, I’ve never been more excited about the future.

The fact of the matter is, most of the income I’m going to report here is from sources that I no longer put any time or effort into.  I guess this is passive income in its purest form, however I don’t view that as a good thing.

Wouldn’t you prefer $10,000 that you worked for vs. $100 you didn’t work for? I know I would (assuming it took a reasonable amount of time to earn the $10,000).

Allow me to explain why I’m so excited.

Why I Hate Coupons

Don’t get me wrong.  Buying something at a discount is almost always a good thing, and that’s basically what a coupon accomplishes.  Coupons on their own really aren’t so bad, but that’s not why I hate them.

For a brief moment, I did think that coupons could play a major role in my life’s overall financial strategy, but I quickly found that I was wrong.

The 30-Day “Epic” Blog Post Challenge

What I’m about to lay out in this post is my plan to not only build a new blog, but set it up so that it can essentially run on “autopilot” for an entire month.

Beyond that, it’ll be a blogging experiment within the concept of “batching” – a term made popular by Tim Ferris’s “The 4-Hour Workweek,” which I have written about at some length before (back when this blog was brand new, quite awhile ago).

I’ll define it here again, just in case you’re new to it:  Batching is the act of grouping together the performance of identical or similar tasks in order to, as a whole, complete the tasks quicker and more efficiently than if each task was performed separately at different times.

Now, let’s get into some more specifics.
