Editor’s note: A few times a month, Lance from Money Life and More will stop by to share some of the best articles from across a variety of publications, including other blogs and mainstream media. I (Luke) am currently in Portland, Oregon, attending the World Domination Summit, a conference that is not as politically disruptive as the name implies.
Finally, after many months of work, I’m a landlord! We now have the townhouse rented out so hopefully I’ll have a lot more free time on the weekends to catch up on other fun activities like writing these pieces for you. Of course, I’m still going to be quite busy as I get married in the next couple of weeks. Then, next month, I have a fun honeymoon planned!
Enough about what’s going on in my life though… Here are just a few of my favorite recent reads I wanted to share.
J Money was inspired and shared a list of money mistakes he read on another website. He followed up by listing which money mistakes he has beaten and the other money mistakes that he still has problems with. No one is perfect with their money, and that includes many of the authors you read! I’ll be the first to admit I’m not perfect.
Unfortunately, many money mistakes involve budget mistakes or lack of a budget all together. David shares five ways he has found to relieve stress on your budget. Hopefully they’ll help if money is a bit tight for you.
Speaking of budgets, Len Penzo shares a story about Jen, a single mom from Virginia that lives on $40,000 per year. She does a great job showing how her finances work for her on her income.
Last, but not least, on my list of good reads is Wealth Lion’s retirement plan. I love reading about other people and their plans for retirement because it seems so far away from me.
I hope everyone is enjoying their extended holiday weekends, if you had one. To those who weren’t so lucky like myself, enjoy your regular weekend. Any day off is a good day!
