In terms of retirement, does $15.07 sound like a lot of money? Of course not. Unless you tweak your line of thinking. We’ll get to the math in a moment, but just think about this for a second. For the price of a decent lunch today, you can buy yourself total freedom from the workforce later in life. Retirement may be far off for you, or simply tough to fathom in general, ...

I recently wrote a post inspired by The Simple Dollar’s assertion that one’s home is not technically an investment. Long story short, I completely agreed. However, I did get some great questions regarding any potential ways to turn some of our better financial decisions into actual money-making opportunities. Turn your house into a money-making machine Yes, paying a mortgage means you are slowly — but surely! — building equity in your home. Compared to renting, this ...

Investments are entered into in an exclusive effort to generate cash, either on a one-time or residual basis. It really is as simple as that. However, a lot of folks out there use the term “investment” when describing their decision to purchase a really expensive couch, or a new coat for example. Will that couch, and that coat, last for a really long time? Maybe. In that case, spending the extra money ...

After knocking out various debts, setting up a small emergency fund, and contributing to your 401(k), it is time to embrace some major after-tax investments. Step 4 in our ongoing retirement guide is an exciting one: Set up an Individual Retirement Account. Far more commonly known as an IRA, this is probably the most flexible way to save thousands on taxes while also maintaining the type of liquidity you can’t find ...

How long ago did you buy those preseason NFL tickets? It’s a Wednesday night, the kids just started school a week ago, you have work first thing in the morning, and all you want to do is kick your feet up and watch some TV at home. You don’t want to get into your car, sit in traffic, pay something like 50 bucks for parking, and 10 bucks for each ...

I recently published a post about the fact that you don’t really need any more financial advice. Yet, here I am back at the keyboard and here you are back for a little extra — because we can all use a few pointers every now and then, can’t we? Something you may have noticed about personal finance blogs in general and this blog specifically is that cutting expenses tends to be ...

You know that you should try to spend a little less money than you currently do. You definitely know that you need to start making more money. In terms of financial advice, once you understand the power of index fund investing you can just “Set it, and forget it.” When it comes to financial advice, we all generally know the right thing to do. It is the same when it comes ...

Do you want to make money investing in the stock market, but have literally no idea what you’re doing? Mutual funds try to help provide a one-stop shop for your investing needs. They still need to be understood, so you can really put your money to work in the method that is best for your personal financial goals. A mutual fund is a “Pool of funds” led by a personal money ...

Some companies have Betas near zero, while others are greater than 1. Why, and what does that even mean? It’s all about volatility This website’s advice is to always be taken with a grain of salt. That can pretty much be said of anything you see on the internet these days. The same is definitely true for most historical stock market performance indicators. Just because Amazon’s revenue is growing like crazy in 2017 ...

I was thinking about Step 3.5 in our nest egg retirement guidelines recently. Yes, knowing how to pay down debt is great. Getting motivated to do so is an entirely different matter, however. Personally, my favorite phrase when it came to getting my family’s financial house in order had to do with eating an elephant. Not exactly the most appetizing mental image, and definitely not literally, but I had to come ...
