    Investing Resources and Links 2019

    Reading Time: 3 Minutes What’s up fellow Frugal Samuraites! Hope we are all having a great week. Gonna be quick today cos I’m late to meet MrsFrugalSamurai, we’ve got a hot date “wink wink”. Ahem. Anyway, so in a mad rush I was thinking how to make this post as pointy as possible. Then EUREKA. I thought, what best than to share some of the resources and links which I’ve used in the past to obtain my financial info! It’s a fairly chunky list… and most of them won’t be new – but hopefully there’s a golden nugget or two in there! Here it is: Australian Business News The Australian…

    Cheque, Savings or Credit?

    Reading Time: 3 Minutes “Honey, we’re out of milk and bread”. Damnit I think, as I pick up the keys to head over to the shops. Hmm bread, bread… ah ha – gotcha. Now for some milk… oh look there’s thin-cut potato wedges on sale… Half an hour later, what was initially a two item shopping list turned into a trolley FULL of groceries which we don’t even need (c’mon Babe, those rubber gloves were on sale). As I approached the counter to pay with my card, the young lady asked: “Cheque, Savings or Credit?” Now, like you – I must have heard this hundreds if not thousands of times…

    Cannabis… The New Frontier?

    Reading Time: 3 Minutes “WHEW!” The agent looks up, she is startled. “Sorry I’m late, but my name is TheFrugalSamurai and I’m here for the inspection…?” ~~~ That’s right folks! Been like a busy bee these last few days working on the next couple of real estate deals. Sadly between this and juggling full-time work, the blog has been put on the backburner a little bit – ARGH! Hate it when that happens but can’t be helped. We only have 24 hours in a day right! BUT finally have a spare couple of minutes to let everyone know that don’t worry – I’m still here, still very much alive, still…

    4 Things I learnt Investing in Cryptocurrency

    “A young man stood to inherit $10 million if he could turn $10k into $1m by the end of the month.

Fortunately for the young man, on the last day of the month, the value of Cryptocurrency crashed through the floor and his $100 million turned into $1m”. That was a joke I first heard during the last Crypto boom in late December/early January, a mere 4 months ago. Surely you all remember how social media, mainstream media and our own personal medium were all abuzz with Cryptocurrency…

    Bitcoin! (Final Part) – 4 Thoughts Of What I’ve Learnt So Far

    What’s up guys! Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed some well-deserved time off. I spent a significant part of it reading up further on bitcoin and cryptocurrencies to demystify the market and try to determine if there’s a future in this. After the previous posts, I’ve had a couple of friends come up to me and share their stories of wild success regarding people they know, people who have invested early in crypto. “Man, if only I had put $200 on, I’d be retired by now”. “Well, of course DC – but if you knew what you know now – you’d put $200,000 on.” Hindsight is always 20/20…
