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.
Savings Rate isn’t something new around here. But, Adam at Minafi talks about it in a bit more depth, and has a super handy way to visualize your progress. Even if you don’t think you’re got an issue with lifestyle inflation, this visualization will help you see how you’re REALLY doing.
Seems like Mustard Seed Money gets a lot of press around here. This is a SUPER comprehensive list of questions and things to ask, not only of a potential financial advisor, but also of yourself before you pick one. If you’re considering using a financial advisor, or don’t really know, definitely give this list a once-over. It should help you avoid bad advisors.
Kelan over at The Savvy Couple hits the nail on the head with this list. Open communication is THE KEY to a healthy relationship. You might not always see eye to eye with your SO, but if you use these 7 tips you’ll find some common ground and work toward your goals together.
I love reading about how couples manage their finances, and The Luxe Strategist is no exception. Teddy Luxband (as in Luxe’s husband) chimes in on how they’re managing their money situation. Marriage doesn’t always mean you need to combine every aspect of your lives.
Bobby aka the Millennial Money Man brings some common sense to investing in this market of ours. We’ll be hit with a recession at some point; it’s inevitible. But until that time, he lists out some great things to keep in mind so that you don’t lose your cool.
That’s it for this week! If you have a blog that I might not know about, let me know in the comments!
