My wife did a Costco run after an appointment this morning. After she was done she lamented that it was going to be a big bill because meat (chicken in particular) wasn’t cheap. I said, “Nothing is anymore,” and she agreed. How to keep on budget, then, if prices keep going up? A recent jump in the Consumer Price Index Prices have risen sharply recently due to inflation.

THERE’S A SAYING that “perception is reality,” meaning that what you believe is your reality, whether it’s true or not. Changing our perception isn’t easy. It takes effort, along with a willingness to discover and accept facts. Many Americans’ perceptions are incorrect, leading them to make subpar financial decisions. Consider: Social Security. Nobody stole the trust fund, it’s not going broke and, yes, it will be there for you. Medicare. It’s not socialized medicine. Care […]

I recently wrote about leaving a legacy. About how the decisions we make today will define the stories that are told about us in the future. And about the importance of living a story that inspires and motivates others whenever it’s shared. It’s one of the reasons I am so passionate about minimalism. The less we waste our lives chasing things that don’t matter, the more intention we can direct towards things that do matter—those things that leave a legacy worth sharing. Today, we have a unique opportunity to do just that. Today is Giving Tuesday, a global movement celebrating generosity. Every year on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, people all over the world come together to give back and make a difference. This Giving Tuesday, I invite you to change a life. And even more than that, I invite you to leave a legacy of hope for orphaned and vulnerable children around the world. The Hope Effect If you’re new to this blog, allow me to provide some background information. In 2015, with the tremendous support of this community, we launched a nonprofit organization called The Hope Effect. Our mission is big: To change the way the world cares for orphans. Millions of children across the globe are growing up without the love of a family. And less than 1% of orphaned children will ever get adopted. So how we care for the remaining 99% matters quite a bit. In developing countries, most of these children are being raised in large institutions, commonly referred to as orphanages. But for decades, it’s been abundantly clear that institutional care has profoundly detrimental, long-lasting impacts on children. In fact some of the first studies on the harmful effects of institutional care on a child’s developing brain date back to the 1930s! Those who spend their formative years in orphanages often miss out on the important personal connections and individualized care that a loving family provides. As a result, their development is stunted, and their ability to learn is either significantly delayed or lost altogether. To picture this, just imagine how a family environment helps a child develop. Think of all the interactions that a child has with his or her family: encouraging them to smile, speak their first word, or take their first steps. Without this individualized attention, affection, and stability, a child will fall behind in almost every stage of proper development because the brain is less likely to associate positive behaviors with positive outcomes. As a result, many of these children eventually age out of orphanages, only to be confronted with a future of crime, prostitution, or trafficking. In fact, studies show that kids who grow up in institutional care are 10 times more likely to fall into sex work, 40 times more likely to commit a crime, and tragically, 500 times more likely to take their own life. This is literally heart-breaking! And almost nobody is talking about it. But we know there’s a better way. That’s why

So, Mint.com (probably the most popular financial app out there) is closing its doors at the end of the year.
