rob a bank invest money in 401k
Robbing a bank may get you twenty. Do it right and let your money grow over time.

Free money? What a crazy idea. No one gives away money, right?

Wrong. Because when you make contributions to your companies 401(k) savings plan, you usually get matching contributions. It really is like getting free money.

What's that? You say you haven't enrolled in your companies 401(k)? Well, why miss out on getting your free money any longer?

The January 2018 Goals and Plans Reaction

toy room organization
The Batcave Toy Room is beginning to take a new shape with plenty of Star Wars and Batman toys to come.
Oh, he's not dead. Not yet anyway.

I'm alive...alive! I have not posted this regularly since 2015 and more than likely those that have followed me in past, haven't even noticed that I am back. Recently, Brian over at Cool and Collected, did a post on how the great toy bloggers of the past have closed shop and left the planet.

I'd like to think that I am included in that list of bloggers, who gave up the ghost. In my case, and not

The Wants and Needs Paradox

want to hear and need to hear
There is a definite difference between needs and wants

Anytime I ask a toy collector or cosplayer what holds them back from achieving their collecting or costuming goals, the answer is always...money.

Some are responsible adults and pay all of their bills and look at their hobbies as wants, working on their costumes and purchasing toys only after they put food on the table. Others, look at toys and costumes as needs and make those purchases first,

You Can Get There if You Plan Synchronicity

Head in the clouds
Keep your head out of the clouds and make a plan.
How do you pull your dreams out of the clouds and down to Bespin so you can reach them? Like any other place you want to go, your journey to reach your goals requires a map--or a plan. Maybe your goal is to have a new Sideshow Collectible action figure. Or a new car that doesn't break down once  a month. Or a Wayne Manor of your own with space for your growing family.

Tatooine Twin Suns
Stop dreaming of what could be and make a plan

We may dream of having the world's greatest toy collection, being a popular cosplayer, or doing some adulting and dream of buying a home. Continuing our education. Or living comfortably during retirement.

Well, the truth is, most of us can't have everything---at least not all at once. On the other hand, we don't have to give up everything we enjoy to meet our future goals! Whatever your dreams may be, they can only come true if you stop dreaming and start doing. The secret of getting what we want now and in the future is good planning.
