Sell it or Just Donate it

I know I promote selling your stuff and doing something epic, something different, something new and exciting, or just taking that money and spending it on an enjoyable and memorable life experience.  The act of selling all my stuff allowed me to do more. In reality, OWNING less stuff meant […]

Pearl Jam Merch – My Fave Band are Sellouts!

The song Gone by Pearl Jam was very inspirational for me. Actually, many PJ songs have been an inspiration; Jeremy, Gone, Corduroy, Life Wasted, Unthought Known…I could list entire albums I grew up listening to. But the lyrics in Gone helped inspire and motivate me to sell all my stuff […]

5 Ways to Save Big on Your Next Reno

I’m a DIYer. I like to “do it myself”. I’m pretty good at most DIY stuff, but I know my limits, too. DIY can provide some big-time renovation savings. Not knowing your limits can eliminate those renovation savings with a flick of a light-switch, or turn of the tap. But there […]

A Life Experience When Time Stood Still

Life experiences aren’t always about exhilarating or extreme events. For me, it’s a unique food tour, an epic concert (or an epic fail concert). Sometimes it’s just a memorable night out with friends. But on my most recent trip to Texas I experienced a brief moment when time stood still. […]

The Death of the Ticket Stub Souvenir

Well, it’s happened. I got old and am complaining about how things are now, and how better things were in days gone by. And it happened over the course of one night, the night the ticket stub souvenir died. I went to a concert just the other night and like […]

Even Busy Bees Stop to Smell the Roses

Do you travel for work? When you do, do you get a chance to visit some of the attractions or dine out at the local favourites? It’s surprising that not everyone thinks to do things like this, but it’s important to do, especially if you travel for a living. I’ve […]

The Best Minimalist Wedding Rings on the Planet!

Diamonds, platinum, gold, titanium, tungsten carbide…pfft, who needs them! Overpriced symbols of love if you ask me. And don’t even get me started on the over-commercialization of Valentines Day! Hey, you don’t need a special day to express your love (or to buy overpriced flowers). Nor do you need to spend […]
