Happy Thanksgiving!

Email  Print Print  

I’ll be taking a few days off as family comes into town to enjoy a nice juicy 16 lb. Thanksgiving day turkey, I’ll probably post a roundup or something this weekend and then start the blogging train back up on Monday. If you’re interested in reading some oldies but goodies from the past, I’ve pulled out a few from the archives:

25. A little over two years ago, I turned 25 and immediately prior to and after my birthday I requested quotes from a bunch of different auto insurance companies to see what the difference would be. Here’s the post from before I turned 25, I detailed the price I was paying to Geico before 25. In this post, I requested multiple auto insurance quotes after turning 25 to see the difference between my pre-25 quotes and the results were consistent with what most people say, you do get a discount.

123. That’s how many comments there are on a post I wrote in August of 2005 about the horrible experience we had with U-Haul in moving my fiancee and her roommate from New Jersey to the Baltimore/Washington D.C. area. What’s funny is that usually when you write an “I Hate XYZ Company” post, some people come to its defense – no one has done that with U-Haul.

114. That’s how comments are on my Rent Forever, Don’t Buy A Home post, the most popular of the Devil’s Advocate posts. If you aren’t familiar with Devil’s Advocate series, it’s where I try to argue the other side of conventional thinking and people seem to enjoy seeing someone take the unpopular side. I’m all about providing enjoyment here. 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving!

    Just discovered your blog and read a few of your posts – excellent and interesting stuff. I am looking into buying a new house in the near future and your post/section on home buying journal was very helpful.

    I live in the states, though orginally from Australia, so my blog ( has a little bit of both countries in it. However finance is finance no matter where you are and you can’t go wrong with saving/investing etc.

    I have added you to my US blog roll and will be a regular reader.
