Great Weekly Reads #10
9 Reasons Your Budget Sucks – Life and a Budget
Budget is something that can be a hit or miss. Yes, we all have good intentions for creating a Budget; however, many of us fail or will eventually fail to follow our budget. I have met people who tried and failed to execute their budget.
Latoya, the author of the post, truly captures the reasons that your budget fails or should I say why your budget sucks. She listed down reasons that a budget fails. While I was reading her post, I couldn’t help but think of the time when I failed to execute my budget. Sure enough, some of the reasons were the ones that the author described on her post.
An Open Letter To The Generation Z – Frugal Millennial
Not so long time ago, finding jobs was easy. Not so long time ago, the total students loans weren’t as high as they are now. It is so unfortunate that Generation Z has or will find it difficult to find a job and pay the student loans.
Jen, the author of the post, provides recommendations on what the Generation Z can do or focus on to live better. Some of her suggestions are not to take out students loans, to choose a practical major, and to learn how to manage money. I think her suggestions are powerful and can be beneficial to those who want to live better but are facing with difficulties in job search and are burdened with a ton of student loans.
Signs You Should Consider Financial Independence – Two Cup House
A lot of us have this Monday sickness or Sunday sickness, that is, we dreaded for Monday to come. Why? Because it’s the day that we get to go back to our job and it will take us 5 days before we get to meet Saturday and Sunday again.
What I stated above is just one of the signs you should consider financial independence, according to Claudia, the author of the post. She started her post by stating information on PA as n employment-at-will state. I don’t know if Maryland is but I do know that North Carolina is.
She provided 5 signs that you should consider FI. For those who are looking for signs for FI but don’t know what they are, this post may help you with that.
My Worst Money Mistakes – The Budget Mom
I have always believed that experience is one of our best teachers, that is, if we learn something from it. Many of us weren’t good with handling finances way back then. Many of us have become our own financial experts either out of necessity or choice.
Kumiko, the author of post, describes her worst money mistakes. I think it’s brave for her to describe her money mistakes when a lot of people will deny theirs and exclaim that they have not had money mistakes. She vividly describes the money drainers, which I believe anyone can learn from.
How I Slashed My Grocery Spending in Half Without Using Coupons – Centsibly Rich
Ever wonder how you can reduce your grocery bills in half without using coupons? Are you tired of your grocery bill taking up a big chunk of your monthly budget? If you are, then, this post is created just for you.
In the past, my wife and I (including our kid) would spend around $600 a month. We did manage to cut it by $200 a month using coupons. But we wanted to cut more and so, we did. Amanda, the author of the post, described some ways to cut down the grocery bills in half or more. I have to admit that they are true in that I’ve done and are doing some of them now.
If you don’t have a big budget on grocery but still want to cut it down, this post will show you some light on cutting your grocery bill.
