Smart Reasons to Save, Use and Invest Money

MR Cache 2010, Sept 26 – Changes At My Site

Weekly Thoughts:

I don’t like to write articles on Friday and Saturday nights.  On Saturdays, I do my weekly review post called “MR Cache” series ahead of time so that I minimize my Saturday night work…  But Friday night’s post I would often skip, leaving Saturday morning without a new post.  Now, I’m content with leaving Saturday empty, but then I started thinking, “Why not post something funny that I create earlier in the week“.

And thus was born the limited series:  Money Fight Matchups!  A semi-humorous fight matchup between different financial groups ( like Freegans vs Minimalists and then Minimalists vs Misers).  I’m also considering expanding my creative process to occasionally drawing an funny comic (As a young boy, I would often draw for hours)…

My Favorite Post from the Week:

My favorite post this week was Raising Savvy Business Kids, but mainly because I’m all about raising my kids to my best abilities!

Closing Thoughts:

This was a great weekend!  Both of my kids scored goals in soccer on the same day!  This is the first time that I think they both scored goals on the same day ever!  I was very proud of both of them!!!  Someday, when they are older, I hope they read this and realize how great their Dad thinks that they are, and how luck I am to be their Dad!!!
