Audible Premium Plus Review: What it Offers and is it Worth it?

A few years ago, after hearing commercials for the service for years, I finally decided to try out an Audible subscription.

Goldbelly Review: Is it Worth the Cost?

If you ask anyone that knows me, they'll tell you that I am no foodie. Heck, I don't even like the word "foodie." Yet, even with how basic I am when it comes to food, I still know when something is good and especially know when something is special. That's...

Did We Wait Too Long to Buy a House?

Back in 2016 — about a year after we relocated from Los Angeles, California to Springfield, Missouri — I wrote about how my wife and I were starting to think about buying a home and how we were dipping our proverbial toes into the process. Since then, we've gone up and...

Cometeer Review: A Money-Saving Specialty Coffee Source?

My relationship with coffee has really evolved over the years. Like many people my age (presumably), my first experience with drinking coffee with any frequency came thanks to the Starbucks Carmel Macchiato. Yet, when I wasn’t drinking sickly sweet beverages like that, I’d drink my coffee black.  Somewhere along the...

Buying a MacBook Pro in 2023: The Challenges and Tips for Saving

In 2004, I began my freshman year of college. During my first week, I realized that I needed a laptop that I could use to take notes in class, do homework on, and make dorm life more bearable in between. When I went to the school bookstore, I learned that...

Athletic Brewing Non-Alcoholic Beer Subscription Review

For as long as I can remember, I've had an odd aversion to alcohol. I distinctly remember running out of the room crying during the Pleasure Island scene of Pinocchio and the apparently famous Tiny Toon Adventures episode "One Beer" left me scarred for life. Whatever the reason for this,...

EveryPlate Meal Kit Delivery Review

For the past few years, meal kit delivery services have been all the rage. And although I’ve written about them from time to time, I hadn’t actually tried any first-hand — until I joined EveryPlate about 18 months ago.  Like other services, EveryPlate sends you weekly recipes along with pre-portioned...

Travel Tuesday: MGM Grand King Room Review Revisited

It's been a while since I've added to my Las Vegas Content Bonanza™. Well, that's also because it had been some time since I last had a chance to visit Sin City. But, back in January for CES, that changed. This time around, I spent a week at the MGM...

Go Brewing - My New Favorite Non-Alcoholic Beer?

About a year ago, I started taking an interest in non-alcoholic beer after discovering Athletic. While I've never been a big beer drinker, I have long been curious about the craft beer scene and, honestly, may have even been a bit jealous of how my wife got to try all...
