The Budget Geek - Fanaticism Without Regret

Who Is The Budget Geek?

I was going on 5 years old in the summer of 1977 when my parents took me to see Star Wars at the old Reeves Theater in the town of Elkin, North Carolina. My life has not been the same since.

I was going on 31 years old in the summer of 2003 when I stumbled across The Dave Ramsey Show on my Sirius Satellite Radio. My life has not been the same since.

Just as Star Wars captured my imagination and gave me a place to spend my cash from age 5 onward, Dave Ramsey captured my imagination and gave me a goal and purpose for my cash from age 31 onward.

I became The Budget Geek. I am a Star Wars fan and collector who loves personal finance. I love to tell my money where to go instead of wondering where it went. Within my budget is a line item or two for entertainment and blow money. Also within my budget are line items for more important things like saving, giving, and leaving a legacy for my family.

At The Budget Geek, you can expect news and commentary from the world of Star Wars and pop culture (Geek Articles) mixed in with news, commentary, advice, and guidance from the world of personal finance (Budget Articles).

The Budget Geek is all about striking a balance between having fun and being a responsible husband and father. Follow me and I will show you how to do both..
