Each week I’m going to try to put together a list of 3-5 great blog posts I’ve read from other personal finance bloggers. These posts are a collection of things I find interesting and thought-provoking, and if you like the content I’m posting I’d encourage you to check out some of the posts in this list. There are many more posts I recommend throughout the week on Twitter – if you aren’t following me yet, please head over there and give me a Follow or follow me on Facebook.
Most people are familiar with two main methods of tackling your debt – the Debt Snowball (made popular by Dave Ramsey) and the Debt Avalanche. Debts to Riches has a slightly different approach to light a fire under your ass and get debt paid down. A very interesting approach!
I am definitely guilty of putting off stuff until the last minute and I used to sometimes make bad financial decisions in the moment because someday we’ll save more for retirement instead. How do you snap out of it? Head over to Reaching for FI for Erin’s thoughts!
Mr Crazy Kicks, a retired engineer, shares some thoughts on the pursuit of financial independence and why everyone needs to pursue it. Honestly when you hear about this concept at first it can be a little strange and out there, but the more you understand it, the cooler it sounds and the more you crave it. Some real life examples in Mr CK’s life show just why it’s so important to pursue it early and often.
Well, damn. Count me in this list! While the headline itself is intended to turn some heads, The Wealthy Accountant tears apart some of the misconceptions with the financial independence movement – including the notion that you need to retire in your 30’s or even you’re 40’s. We are all uniquely ourselves.
That’s it for this week! If you have a blog that I might not know about, let me know in the comments!
