I’ve been reading some fantastic blogs out there and thought to start off with this new blog I would do a round up. Previously in the other blog I would post a ’round up’ every week, but I”m not sure what I can commit to with the new baby on the way (I’m pretty sure I can do at least monthly but I don’t want to commit to saying a monthly round up in case I can do every two weeks). Haha, so I am just going to stick to titling it as “Edition #1”, it would be interesting to see how far the edition goes!
So without further delay, here are some stellar posts from the PF blogosphere:
Retire By 40 shares his update and reflections of 5 Years after Early Retirement (I can’t believe it’s been so long since Joe retired early!)… time flies!
Genymoney.ca has been kindly listed in the recently added personal finance blogs on the Rockstar Finance Directory. If you haven’t heard (likely you have but just in case you haven’t) the Rockstar Finance Directory is a list of personal finance blogs who share their numbers. Lots of intimated net worth numbers up there but it’s definitely motivating to be included among the elite.
Apathy Ends shares 14 Baby Items worth Splurging On, some of the experienced parents I have talked to really recommend the lounger (something that rocks the baby while you can do stuff around the house) but we have none of those items on their list. Hopefully we will fare okay!
Learn to Be Great posted a Morning Routine inspired by Tim Ferriss, who is probably the ultimate productivity guru. He meditates for 21 minutes every day after making his bed. I meditate about 10 minutes a few times a week but don’t do it in the morning which is something to aim for. Also he recommends practising gratitude in the morning.
Think Save Retire who retired at 35 (amazing) and lives in an Airstream posted some enviably gorgeous photos of the Oregon Coast. It’s not really personal finance related but it’s so beautiful that I had to share!
My Own Advisor asks if you still want to be a millionaire (the answer from me is a resounding yes). Apparently 3.5% of Canadians have investable/ liquid assets of more than $1 million (not counting real estate/home equity). I’m sure the number will be much higher if that asset was counted.
Financial Samurai posts a thought provoking article as usual, Financial Dependence is the Worst: Why Each Spouse Needs Their Own Bank Account. He shares a poll asking readers how their bank accounts are structured and most people have bank accounts completely merged. I personally have a joint account and a joint credit card with my husband but everything else is separate.
Well, that’s all for this edition, folks! Have a wonderful weekend!
