End of Week Review 5/1/2020

This week was hectic. I had all of my car’s maintenance schedules line up. Oil change, new air and cabin filters, and spark plugs for both my car and my wife’s car. Surprisingly that set me back a decent amount of money. But my “former” employer got an SBA loan but doesn’t have any workContinue reading “End of Week Review 5/1/2020”

End of Week Review 4/24/20

This new job is really getting me into shape. Dropping almost 4 pounds this week feels awesome. However I realized that with buying a 3D printer, comes the need to buy expendables. I have so many things I want to print and seeing that everyone who is stuck home with a 3D printer is buyingContinue reading “End of Week Review 4/24/20”

End of Week Review 4/17/20 (delayed)

Another week of double(-ish) pay and finding a more active job. This week I started at Fedex and I wouldn’t say it’s kicking my ass entirely, but I definitely come home with my ass dragging almost an inch form the ground. And because I went from 3rd shift to 1st, I totally forgot what dayContinue reading “End of Week Review 4/17/20 (delayed)”

End of Week Review 4/10/2020

This week was quite the surge for my finances. I got paid from my previous job seeing as they are riding an SBA loan/grant and from the grocery store. So I got paid double what I normally did. My investments bounced back by quite a bit. This is the first time I’ve seen my totalContinue reading “End of Week Review 4/10/2020”

End of Week Review 4/4/2020

Better late than never. Working 3rd shift has gotten me lost on what day of the week it is. All I have done for the last week is work, sleep, and online shop with my local stores to get food and other household goods. I have plenty of toilet paper (I’m not hoarding it) andContinue reading “End of Week Review 4/4/2020”

End of Week Review 3/20/20

So last week I forgot to mention the extra money I had from my tax refund. that was $1,100. Now that’s out of the way, I tried so hard not to panic and buy all the things, but I did go grocery shopping multiple times to get the things I wanted when they were inContinue reading “End of Week Review 3/20/20”

End of Week Review 3/13/20

Man this week has been all over the place. The market has dropped, attempted a come back and dropped again. Luckily I got paid and did a freelance gig to help me, but I still think there is more to come with the drops. my employers has deemed a spending freeze and I’m doing theContinue reading “End of Week Review 3/13/20”

End of Week Review 3/6/2020

Thanks Coronavirus! Everyone I’ve been talking to at work has been freaking out that the markets are crashing all because of Coronavirus. I’m the opposite. The market has given me a discount on my retirement shares and once this whole thing is over, I’ll be in a better position. Still wish I had more moneyContinue reading “End of Week Review 3/6/2020”

End of Week Review 2/28/20

Man… Even with getting paid, this market correction/ Coronavirus/ political scare is making that net worth drop. If I took out my retirement account and investments, I’d actually look a lot better. But this is a prefect example of being greedy when others are fearful. Selling investments at a time like this would make meContinue reading “End of Week Review 2/28/20”

End of Week Review 2/21/20

I’m not upset by this massive drop this week. My retirement account and other investments took a dip this week. I lost $700 on my retirement account alone. Not to mention that this is a non payday week. I was expecting at least dropping between $300-$500. But the rest was out of my control. IContinue reading “End of Week Review 2/21/20”
