MoneyAhoy.com – September Update
Back again with another MoneyAhoy progress update. This time I’ll be talking about posts that I made in September. Again, I’m catching up on my backlog here as I’ve fallen several months behind on posting these updates. Here are the articles I created for the month of September:
- Quit World of Warcraft Today – This posts talks about how my son and I quit World of Warcraft and now save $30 a month in subscription fees.
- The Best Dividend Paying Stocks – August 2013 Recap – Here I cover the performance of some of the recommended stocks from the Best Dividend series in August. I show that over the past month they outperformed the S&P by ~4%! Not too bad, huh?
- Yard Sale Deals – August 2013 – This month for yard sale deals again we saved more than $300! I finally found a great sub-woofer, and we also got a boat load of young reader books for my son. Did I mention that I love yard sales?
- Life Insurance and Short Term Disability Insurance Recap – This post brings a lot of the work I put in to save on life insurance and short term disability insurance. All in all, we ended up saving nearly $1,500 a year by getting rid of extra insurance that we did not really need. I highly recommend checking this article out, as it applies to almost everyone.
- Yard Sale Arbitrage – Vera Bradley Purses – Here I cover a simple money making idea of buying Vera Bradley purses at yard sales for ~$3 and reselling them on ebay for ~$15-$25. It works well, and you can generate ~300% return on your money by doing this. The only problem is that I haven’t figured out yet how to scale it up to make a fortune.
- Car Downsizing – How I Got a Free Corolla – Here I cover the long process of finding a used car that will actual pay for itself through its increased fuel efficiency. Switching from a Camry to a Corolla will actually save me more than $1,000 a year!
There you have it! Only six articles for September, but they were some really great ones. I ended up making some changes and putting things in place to save more than $2,500 a year. So, I’m not complaining 🙂
