Do you have a “Money Metaphor” to help keep you on track to reach your personal finance goals? Maybe — but probably not. We’re all more or less adults in the Nest Egg Ninjas community, but that doesn’t mean all of us have perfect self-control all the time. In fact, quite the opposite: Richard Thaler just won the Nobel Prize in Economics for his studies in the field of behavioral economics. Basically, he ...

There are several different ways to save money on taxes over time — and all are crucial when it comes to building your nest egg. There are taxable investment accounts, pre-taxed, tax-deferred, post-tax, and plenty more terms out there. It can get complicated, but that’s why we’re here. To make money. And to make making money simple. That’s simple! What is a tax-deferred account? If your money is placed into some sort of ...

Although I recently published a post about the fact that you don’t really need any more financial advice, we can all definitely use a few pointers on saving and how to make more money every now and then, now can’t we? With that in mind, I wanted to piggyback off of what has been by far my most popular post to date: What is one thing you can do this week ...

Very few among us will ever sell off our business to Google for a billion dollars. In lieu of striking it rich in the lottery or through the hard work poured into entrepreneurship, we need to instead try to focus on both the day-to-day and the money victories enjoyed over the long term. Trying to picture the $50 you contributed to your company’s 401(k) program turning into a million dollars in ...

We all know that it takes money to make money — that’s why it’s called passive income instead of a job, of course! No one in real life has ever literally rubbed two pennies together to create a quarter. But how to actually get to the point where our cash is generating enough of its own cash so that we don’t have to work anymore? That is literally the million-dollar question, now ...

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 ...
