    Restaurants, Your Wallet, and You (reprogramming your meal prep and patterns) SB 1521

    Restaurants, Your Wallet, and You (reprogramming your meal prep and patterns) SB 1521

    A recent major media outlet reports that people earning less than $50,000 per year aren't eating at restaurants as often as they did a year ago, and that eating away from home is becoming a trait increasingly more for the wealthy. Today we talk about not only this trend but others as we help you grab a firm hold on your wallet. One of the "big three" expense categories is food cost, and cutting your restaurant tab can be an effective way to sock more money toward financial independence. We'll share tools, strategies, and anecdotes from people who've successfully navigated the restaurant game on today's show.
    Plus, we share a TikTok minute from one creator who's more than a little worried about homeowners and renters insurance. You'll hear why and how to make better decisions around these policies. Then we look at other communities online and answer random questions we've seen on the web that we think haven't been answered very well. We talk CD rates, driving for DoorDash, and more.

    Our Stacking Benjamins Summer Kick-Off Episode (with Robert Niles)

    Our Stacking Benjamins Summer Kick-Off Episode (with Robert Niles)

    Nothing says summer more than a trip to your favorite regional theme park. Whether with friends, family, or alone, a trip to a theme park can be either super expensive and tiring or a blast. So that's why our friend from Theme Park Insider, Robert Niles, is BACK to help us all kick off summer on the right foot, spending money wisely on experiences that will be memorable and fun. Not only will he help you save some money, but he'll also share tips on the hottest parks and attractions around the country. We'll talk about food (best food AND deals), thrill rides, family attractions, and more.

    In our headline, OG and Joe dive into the exchange-traded fund (ETF) craze. People are pouring money into ETFs, but are they doing it wisely? In many cases, no. We'll share how exchange-traded funds work, which types are the best to choose from, and how to avoid getting caught investing in something that sounds great...but truly is not.

    Of course, we'll also share Doug's trivia question about the biggest stock market drop of all time and FINALLY wrap up our 2024 "Joke Off."

    It's another day of fun on the Stacking Benjamins show. As always, thanks to our sponsors, and enjoy another show where we're ad-free the ENTIRE second half of the show (as always!).

    How To Not Pick a Broker (SB 1517)

    How To Not Pick a Broker (SB 1517)

    Robinhood seams to always be in the news, and usually not for a good reason. Today Joe and OG discuss Robinhood crypto potentially being sued be the SEC. Crypto still seems to be the wild wild west. Is the SEC trying to put some regulations around crypto but then again isn't that the whole purpose of crypto?
    Our TikTok is all about following the prospectus and whether Doug starts his fire with those?
    We answer a question from Stacker, Damon, about whether or not he can help out his kids fund their Roth IRAs?

    Save Money on Interest Payments, Loans, Perscriptions, Hotel Rooms, and More

    Matt Schulz is the PERFECT mentor to teach us how to negotiate because, in his own words, he's not a natural negotiator. Today he proves that you don't have to be a natural to find better deals on your credit card interest rates, prescription, rental cars, hotel rooms, and more. He'll walk us through the common misconceptions around negotiating and help us learn to ask politely for more for ourselves.
    In our headline segment, small company stocks are struggling to keep up with the S&P 500. Why would someone stay diversified when large companies are doing so well and other stocks are not? We'll walk through the science of diversification and why it's a mistake to bail on underperforming asset classes during down periods.
    Of course, that's not all. We'll share some of Doug's trivia, answer a question from a Stacker about emergency fund interest rates, and more!
