Weekend Reading – New year edition

reading

I hope everyone have had a great start to 2016 so far. 2016 got off to a rough start for us. Baby T got sick the last week of December. Although the coughing has improved, he has gotten some sort of viral infection on his face. His cheeks have been really red & dry the last few days and this morning he woke up with puffy eyes. It broke Mrs. T and my hearts when he said “eyes broken” the first thing he woke up this morning. Mrs. T took him to the doctor today to get checked again. Hopefully he’ll get better in the few days and get back to his little charmer routine. 🙂

Here are some articles that I enjoyed reading lately.

Mr. 1500 wrote an excellent piece on Frugalwoods on Why Frugal Friends Are the Best Friends. 

Mr. SSC shared their Excel Planning Worksheet. What a great tool.

Becoming Minimalist had a piece on 7 Things That Shouldn’t Impress Anyone.

Mad Fientist shared his thought on Frugalwoods on How NOT to pursue Financial Independence. I am definitely guilty on doing some of the things mentioned so it was a great reminder.

Emily wrote about 5 Things I Learned About Money From Cover the Oil Bust. 

Save Spend Splurge wrote about Why Wealthy People Don’t Realize Their Income.

David at Raptitude analyzed his 21 self-improvement experiments over 7 years.  

Our Next Life wrote The Journey Is the Destination – Planning for Early Retirement is the joy in itself. I really enjoyed reading this post.

Ryan shared his Portfolio Tracker Template.

Mr. Money Mustache shared Lessons that he learned from having his bike stolen. 

Boomer & Echo shared 16 Financial Habits for a prosperous new year. 

Sam suggested Creating your mid-life crisis fund before it’s too late. 

Have a great weekend everyone!
