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.
This one is something most of us fiscally responsible folks still in the 9-5 can relate to at some point. I am constantly debating whether to give my 9-5 the minimum amount, or give it my all. I change my mind sometimes, and it sounds like I’m not alone. See what fellow Minnesotan Apathy Ends has to say about it.
I’m on a roll this week with reading stuff by people with emoji’s for faces, I guess. ONL talks about what it takes to be financially independent, and one of the contributing factors to if you can be successful or not in your pursuit of FI. If you are in the “I want to retire early” camp, make sure you give this one a read!
I really like the strategy that Mel lays out here; a simple budgeting hack to get rid of all of your money! I find that if you don’t do this, you can start to accummulat too much cash that just sits there, asking and waiting to be spent frivolously. The more you can avoid it, the better!
SELF PLUG! My first guest post aired this week, on Monday, over at Millennial Money Man; admittedly one of my favorite blogs to read. If you ever wondered what sorts of BS I’ve gotten into in the past that made me say “oh shit.” and actually do something about my money, then head on over! Bonus points if you can guess them without reading it!
That’s it for this week! If you have a blog that I might not know about, let me know in the comments!
