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.
Mrs. PP (embrace it) put together a short quiz to see how on-point your money management is. It’s not a perfect survey, but it’s a neat concept and one I may explore in the future! Picky Pinchers is also a great blog to follow if you like some random recipes and the like. If you don’t know how to make the best cold brew you’ll ever make, it’s worth a read.
Fellow Minnesotan and, if you couldn’t guess, physician, aptly going by Physician on FIRE has a guest post from another blogger known as Wealthy Doc. In this post, WD essentially turns the concept of ‘pay yourself first’ on its head. It’s pretty smart, and actually a topic I’ll somewhat talk about with Monday’s post. Especially for high earners, this is a great read.
I love this one over at Adventure Rich. It’s not often that we think about personal mission statements. Most of the time we barely know the mission statement for the company we work for! It seems silly at first, but going through the exercise of defining what your mission statement looks like can help start some great conversations and invoke some deep thinking. What would your mission statement be?
Minnesota represent! Another MN blogger makes the list this week.
The concept of a “money map” that Budget On a Stick lays out is pretty simple – basically “a treasure map but with multiple X’s and the treasure chests keep getting bigger.” If you’re a flow chart nerd like me, this in an exercise you have to go through! I am planning on putting one together after Kristin and I finally get around to merging all of our finances.
That’s it for this week! If you have a blog that I might not know about, let me know in the comments!
