Hey there and welcome to DadSense!

My name is Mike and I created DadSense to be a place for dads (and moms!) to find answers to all of their most important questions. Things like:

  • How do I start a family budget and get out of debt?
  • What kind of side hustles can I use to earn extra cash?
  • How do I have fun with my family without spending a fortune?
  • How does a 401(k) work and am I using mine right?
  • What the hell am I going to make for dinner tonight?

And a whole lot more.

A little about me…

I’m a happily married father of three living in NJ, one of the most expensive states to live in. For much of the last decade and a half we’ve been a single income family and although we’ve sometimes struggled and had to make sacrifices we’ve managed to keep ourselves afloat and have lots of laughs along the way.

I’m a beer snob who spends entirely too much money on craft beer. I’m always up to try a new IPA or stout.

I love to cook, especially when it comes to grilling. I’ll try grilling just about everything I can.

Mets, Devils, Giants.

DadSense will basically be a journal of knowledge I’ve accumulated in my years of fatherhood. So please join me in my adventures of being a dad!
