No two ways about it – weddings are big business. Even if you haven’t had to pay for your own wedding yet, you’ve no doubt heard about the potentially bank-breaking effect a wedding can have on a couple’s finances. And when it comes to weddings, you fall in one of two categories: either you’re an […]

6 Purchases you should ALWAYS Charge

credit cards

I write a lot about the dangers of credit cards. I have called them “frenemies” and “necessary evils” in the past. I dislike credit cards because a lot of people can’t handle them. They buy, buy, buy and then don’t pay off their balance at the end of the month. Credit card companies rightly so […]

By Jim Sheridan I just witnessed someone in an SUV slam into the back of a stationery big, bright yellow school bus in a 25 mph speed limit in a school zone. “Hey, who put that school bus there?!” I’m now thinking about suing the driver of that SUV for the psychological trauma that witnessing […]

Long time readers know my propensity for writing about home security. I’ve written about the topic multiple times over the last few years. Last time I wrote about home security tips I focused on useful gadgets to deter criminals. I talked about cheap lamp sensors that turn on lamps at dusk and off at dawn. […]

By Jim Sheridan. Welcome back, brothers and sisters. I was giving a seminar a few years ago, and I was explaining the benefits of a corporation when one of the attendees started yelling out, “A corporation is a fiction! A corporation is a fiction! A corporation is a fiction!” The rest of the attendees shuffled […]

Traveling the world, meeting new, interesting people and being paid to write about your adventures… isn’t that a dream many of us have? And I’m not talking about bumming around on the cheap, surviving on bread and wine (as I did in my younger days in Europe), lugging all your worldly possessions in an over-sized […]

How is the end of summer almost here? I haven’t even taken a summer vacation yet. I don’t even know where the time went. Actually it’s a blessing in disguise Mr. Patterson and I haven’t taken a vacation yet this year. If I can convince the hubby to wait just a few more weeks travel […]

By Jim Sheridan. Special note from Jim: Before I begin this week’s newsletter, I must say a special thank you for all your kind remarks regarding last week’s newsletter. Natural cures being covered up by drug companies so they can make money from American blood is what that drove me to write my critically-acclaimed, international […]

Making Money on Fiverr.com

Talent pinned on noticeboard

Do you have a fun, creative talent that you feel you haven’t been able to benefit from? Are you an expert at the kazoo? Are you a great doodler who hasn’t taken the ill-advised step to becoming a street caricature artist? Have you been told more than once that you have a baseball announcer’s voice? […]

Extreme Couponers Are Extreme Wasters

Fisheye Woman Holding Coupons

Over the past two years I’ve written several times about extreme couponing and buying in bulk. It’s a hot topic. Everyone wants to save money where they can and the grocery store is not immune to that fact. My opinion on the fad (and it is just that) is slightly more horrified than excited.  To […]
