Ah, the end of the week is upon us and I have decided to take the blogging day off and share a few of my favorites that I found floating around the financial blogosphere this week. And without further ado, here we go.
Retirement: Your Permanent Vacation
Jacob Merkley, husband, father, snowboarder, and founder of, Power Over Life, writes motivational and informative articles that help people take control of their lives. One such article that caught my eye this week was Retirement: Your Permanent Vacation. I mean how couldn’t that title grab my attention? After reading it, I realized the article was power-packed full of great financial information that my readers might enjoy…especially those readers just starting out or looking for online resources to get their financial lives in order. If this sounds interesting, go check it out!
Why My Savings Rate Is So High…
Miss Mazuma is a flight attendant who loves to travel (good thing!) blazing a trail toward financial independence with her dog, Bubba, and a 75% savings rate! If that isn’t impressive, I don’t know what is.
Miss Mazuma is proof that you don’t need to be half of a power couple making 200k+ per year to have a savings rate that knocks your socks off. If you think you might like to read about how she’s doing it, go check it out!
I also stumbled across an article on Purple Sweatpants -such a cool name- about fostering community in our neighborhoods by making small changes.
Ernie at Purple Sweatpants is a self-proclaimed boy band reject who now blogs about his town, personal finance, and minimalism. WE LOVE THIS. In this article, he talks about his eye-opening experience with city planning and how he’s encouraging community by doing the simplest of all things…rolling his grill to the front of his house so he can interact with his neighbors. Genius. If this feel-good article sounds like it’s your alley, go check it out!
