...until there's not enough

#Money is not important

See the difference?
UPDATE: Some have taken issue with #5, but you’re missing the point. There are necessary student loans. “Unnecessary student loans” refers to those taking out loans for excessive living expenses, going back to school simply because you didn’t find a job right away, or staying in school longer than needed just because you don’t want to enter the real world.

And the winner is…

Alana Taylor!  She was the lucky winner of the $50 Amazon gift card!

Alana, just a word of advice.  You’re going to have “friends” and “family” coming out of the woodwork to try and get a piece of your winnings.  Just know that it’s okay to say no someone that says, “Hey Alana! It’s me, your cousin twice removed from Wyoming!  I know we’ve never met, but I was just wondering if you would be willing to share some of that Amazon gift card you won.  I don’t need a lot—just $5 or so to get some hemorrhoid cream for my cat.  C’mon, you’re rich now!  Don’t you wanna share it with FAMILY???!!!”

Congrats, Alana!

I need your opinion!

I’m working on the Money Is Not Important book proposal, and I want to include some feedback from the awesome Tumblr community.

What are some things you’d like to see addressed in a book about our relationship with money?

If your idea makes it in the book, I’ll be sure to send you a copy!

Technology That Pays for Itself
It’s widely known that many of your electronics continue to use electricity even after you’ve turned them off.  Your home entertainment center is one of the worst offenders.
But, constantly turning the power strip on and off is a pain, and unplugging a DVR means it won’t record your favorite shows.
Belkin has come up with a great solution.  It’s the Conserve Smart Energy-Saving Power Strip.  For the about the same cost as other decent surge protectors, this one helps you solve the problem of vampire electronics.
It’s got a “master” plug that can be used for the tv.  When you turn your tv on, it automatically turns on the other plugs to your receiver, blu ray player, etc.  It also has two non-controlled outlets that will always stay on, which is great for the DVR.
Over time, this piece of tech is going to pay for itself plus more, and it’s good for the environment.  I highly suggest you pick one up and give it a try.
