• Buying a House in California

    I'm still learning about buying a home in California. Home buying is complicated, especially in this state's market. It’s not exactly easy figuring out how to get started, how much you can afford, and what “amortization” means without talking to a lot of people. After talking to a licensed lender, I feel like I gained a heck of a lot of knowledge but also confused myself even further. This past pandemic year was not a normal year for anyone, financially speaking and who know what this year wil…

  • Will the real Marilyn please stand up? - Interview with Actress Susan Griffiths

    I am fascinated by Marilyn Monroe. Wikipedia has her short biography description as follows: "Marilyn Monroe was an American actress, model, and singer. Famous for playing comedic "blonde bombshell" characters, she became one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1950s and early 1960s and was emblematic of the era's changing attitudes towards sexuality." Very general explanation for someone who has stood the test of time and influenced many generations, huh? She was much more than her looks …

  • Major savings on DELL!

    I have to admit, I am an Apple product baby. It's almost like religion. But...most of my family is not. I was told that I wasn't being fair, by only sticking to the mainstay that a lot of Entertainment people buy into by only using Apple products, when I recommend hot ticket computer stuff. I literally had to learn a Dell system, so I could understand how to help my parents navigate their own computer. So, I promised more info on holiday deals and here you go! DELL coupon deals and yes, it is o…

  • How do you know when you can afford to buy a house?

    After my last blog about rent calculations, using Zumper.com, I received a bit of email from people asking about mortgage calculators and buying a home. This led me on a quest, because I really have not looked into it, being that the median cost of a home in Los Angeles starts in the millions and I am currently not in the market. A lot of people, due to this pandemic year, have left California and relocated to other states that garner more bang for their buck. The size of a home in Texas is a fo…

  • What is Zumper?

    With job loss and a housing crisis on the rise in most states, a lot of renters are downsizing. Renters are trying to move and make the best use of their dwindled income, due to the Covid pandemic. Rent prices are all over the place and there is a great benefit of using a rent calculator to determine how much you can afford, as we move into the new year. When it comes to renting a new home, at this current time where the pandemic seems to have no end in sight, budgets have changed indeed. I …

  • Being Smart About Buying a New or Used Car

    So, I turned in my cute leased vehicle, that I barely drove over the past three years, because I got used to the ease of taking a Lyft or Uber to auditions and meetings. My monthly payment that I was throwing at this car was literally going to waste because, in essence, a lease is a contractual rental that eventually comes due and you either turn in the leased vehicle for a new leased vehicle or pay the difference left on the vehicle to own that car. I didn't own it and I wasn't using it. I ba…
