In honor of the economic meltdown and ensuing chaos of 2008, I decided to start another blog just dedicated to strategies for saving money, which I must admit is a bit of an obsession for me (albeit a healthier obsession than, say, heavy drinking or washing your hands compulsively). I actually am so enthusiastic about this ongoing mission that Stephan calls it "The Culwell Mandate." Seriously-- I do try to figure out ways to save money every day, and now I've decided that other people might find this useful too, and that I might finally have a blog that offers a real service (other than laughter, which I know is really important too).
I'm sure if you've been reading this blog for awhile you've noted my love for Costco and my cheapness, which I have decide to re-brand as "financial savviness" for 2009. I come by this trait completely honestly from my father, who (as you will eventually read on the other blog), is in the process of paving and stamping his own driveway, to the tune of a $90,000 savings (yep, that's right. 90 grand). The new blog is called SofaCoins.com (as in, I will help you find the coins in your sofa), and there you will find stuff that will help you save a little money every day, if that's how you're so inclined. Don't worry, though-- Funny Strange will still be here to provide you with mirth and pictures of inflatable chairs the color of urine and musings on Lance Armstrong's frozen sperm.
And so, without further ado, I give you.....SofaCoins.com! An extra special thanks to my famous video game designer friend Jason, who took time out of his day to draw me the little couch and make my banner look good!
