Our Story

Welcome to our blog!  We creatively named our blog Mad Money Monster.  Mainly because it rhymed and sounded cool.  Plus, it was available as a .com and on all social media platforms.  Score!

Okay, let’s get down to it.  My name is Mrs. Money Monster and my husband’s name is Mr. Money Monster.  Creative, I know.  We also have one Mini Monster (for now :) as well as Mad Money Cats and Mad Money Pups.  Yes, when we combined our lives, we also increased our four-legged companions.  Our furry friends currently outnumber us by one.  *sigh*

We’re on a personal quest to tame the mad money monster that lives within us.    Please join us on our journey to early retirement through Intelligent Design!  What does THAT mean?  We’re not completely sure.  We’re figuring it out as we go.  But it sure does sound good, doesn’t it?

Our goal is to live a RICH life without spending all of our hard earned cash.  We want to pay off all of our debt and have the option of leaving our Rat Race careers in the dust.  We’re going to do this through, what we like to call, Intelligent Design.  Intelligent Design means we are scrutinizing every purchase and using any extra to pay down debt and invest for the future.  With a lot of persistence, a little luck, and a dash of good fortune (again, it sounds good!) we will hit our early retirement goal and be able to do whatever the heck we please when the clock strikes midnight ringing in 2021!

Ultimately, we want to create enough passive income to have the option of working, or not.  Our STRETCH goal is to buy a second home in the mountains (still trying to determine the ultimate location) that we can use as a retreat for a few weeks, whenever the mood hits us!

Ridiculous But Necessary Disclaimer

I do not have a degree in personal finance or economics; my blogs are meant to entertain and, hopefully, enlighten a few souls along the way.
