Well, hello retirement: man selling 212 number for a million dollars. That's the traditional landline area code for Manhattan, particularly for businesses, so it's a fairly prestigious and in-demand number to have. Actually, I'm the only person I've ever met to have one for a cell phone, and I've always toyed with the idea that I would try to sell it someday. Hopefully he gets a big paycheck for it so I have a precedent!

A (very long) very good article about the sunk cost fallacy.
Down and out on $250,000 per year.
Should you keep your hobby or turn it into a business? Trent investigates the question

Are unpaid jobs the new normal? I sure hope not!

I love this dreamy/practical list combination.

A great interactive 31 step financial tuneup for once you've completed your taxes.

Cate's Homemaking Binder is inspiring to me!

Via email, an interesting article on the history of banking - money has really been around longer than almost anything else.
This woman rents a 90 square foot apartment in Manhattan for $700. I'm honestly not sure whether to feel pity or jealousy for her. 


  1. I just shared that 31 step financial tuneup on twitter and in my google reader...looks really useful! I'll have to dig in on it, soon!

    Also, reading through that post about $250k...didn't realize the tax burden they have! Maybe being a single renter with no kids makes things a lot easier! That and I don't make NEARLY that much.

  2. Okay, I just finished reading that article (the $250k). I don't know, it seems like EVERYONE has to deal with taxes and reducing expenses. It's just as hard, if not harder, for people making less to save money, right?
