Stock Ideas #3

Posted on March 10th, 2016 | Comments: 2

It’s that time again where I post a few links to some recent articles that have stock purchasing ideas.  I usually do this whenever I’m getting ready to buy my next position since I like to start this process off by finding out what stocks other investors are adding to their own portfolios. On that note, I’m not saying you should follow these suggestions  — I’m just […]

Income & Expenses: February 2016

Posted on March 2nd, 2016 | Comments: 2

Intro February was a stellar month in terms of savings — I’m actually kind of surprised about it. Even with my amortized expenses from the previous year, I saved just under 50% of my monthly income. If I don’t include those expenses, my saving rate increases  to almost 60%.  The two biggest differences between this month and the […]

Book Review: Your Money or Your Life

Posted on February 22nd, 2016 | Comments: 0

Rating: 4/5 There’s a reason why I chose “Your Money or Your Life” by Vicki Robin for my first book review: it’s a staple in the financial independence movement, and if you haven’t already read it, you probably should.

Income & Expenses: January 2016

Posted on February 3rd, 2016 | Comments: 0

Where to begin? First of all, although I knew this was going to happen, January was a disappointing month as far as saving money goes!
