Tax season is upon us!

Now that everyone’s W-2’s are out and the majority of us have filed our taxes for the year. What was your refund? Did you even get a refund or did you owe money? If you got a refund some of you might not be too happy that it wasn’t as much as you would have liked. While others who received a larger than expected return are no doubt very happy. The truth of the matter is, you really don’t want a large tax refund. The closest to zero you get come refund time the better. The larger your refund, the

A few ways to save a little extra money

Lower your water heater’s temperature Most households only need their water heater set to 120 degrees Fahrenheit, but some are set as high as 140 degrees. Apart from posing a safety hazard, this also wastes a lot of energy. Lowering your water heater’s temperature from 140 degrees to 120 degrees could save up to 22% on your electric bill annually, according to the Department of Energy. This also slows mineral buildup and corrosion in your water pipes, which can extend the life of your water heater.

An interesting article that I found. Let’s face it: Many Americans aren’t doing a good job of saving for retirement. GOBankingRates’ 2018 Retirement Savings survey found that 42 percent of respondents have less than $10,000 saved, which isn’t even enough to cover a year’s worth of expenses in retirement. It’s true that saving for retirement can be a struggle if you’re living paycheck to paycheck. But a new GOBankingRates survey of more than 1,000 adults found that many Americans might have more room in their budgets than they think to set aside cash for retirement. The respondents shared how much they spent

 2010, Chris Reining committed to becoming financially independent. He set the goal of building a $1 million portfolio by age 35, cut back on his expenses and started aggressively socking away money. He worked his way up to saving more than half his income, reached the $1 million mark at 35, as planned, and officially retired in 2016 at age 37. But, he says, saving isn’t enough. If you want to become a millionaire or settle down early, “quit saving your money,” Reining writes on his blog, and start investing it.Littlest Pet Shop Cat Hideaway, MulticolorSponsored by Walmart Say you decide to earmark $100 each

Retail Arbitrage

I do retail arbitrage a couple hours a week. I have a seller account on Amazon and I do Amazon FBA. What I do is I go to local thrift stores like Goodwill and Savers and I look for books and products that are cheap enough for me to resell on Amazon. I box everything up once a week and ship it off to an Amazon warehouse where they deal with the customer service and shipping and all that good stuff. I make about $25.00 profit a week doing this. Now keep in mind that I don’t necessarily go out
