If you’re new to the world of personal finance, there are a lot of questions that come up that you may be embarrassed to ask. Such as, “What are stocks and bonds and what do they do?” or “How do I get started saving for retirement?” because society tells us that we should already know about it. But I’ll be honest… …I LOVE THESE QUESTIONS!!!!! If you ask me questions like these, it tells ...

After years of depriving financial voyeurs of their favorite series, we’ve decided to relaunch The Money Diaries, articles where we collect stories from real people about their spending habits over seven days and anonymize them. We LOVE hearing how people spend their money. Unfortunately, people lie — they share purchases that are socially acceptable (eg groceries), but not the purchases they really make (eg four shots of whiskey on a ...

I’ve talked about invisible scripts before. They’re the things we tell ourselves that are so deeply embedded that we don’t even realize they guide our attitudes and behaviors. For example: “I need to go to college to get a degree if I want a good job.” “After I graduate, I need to get married and settle down.” “Having more Twitter followers means more people like me.” And early retirement is no exception. Our society ...

Last week, I gave you the exact systems to help you negotiate lower car insurance rates. Now, I want to talk about another aspect of buying a car that many don’t consider: the best time of year to buy a car. People get so caught up in the exciting parts of buying a car (that don’t matter), like: The color of the car The sound system it’s going to have The rims they ...

It’s crazy to me how much people get wrapped up in meaningless markers of “success.” Things like: “I got to make sure I have more Twitter/Instagram followers than I’m following. Otherwise, I’ll look lame.” “Ugh I haven’t had nearly as many romantic partners as my friends. Better download Tinder.” “I have to get into an Ivy League school if I want an awesome job.” These are invisible scripts — the unspoken things we tell ourselves that are ...

I’ve talked about the 401k a few times before… [cue montage of every single time I scream at you to get a 401k] That’s only because the 401k is one of the most powerful investment tools at your disposal. Whenever I mention it, though, someone inevitably asks me the same question: How much should I have in my 401k? It’s a solid question — but answering it is a little tricky. To do so, we’re going to have to take ...

Last week, Mavis Wanczyk, a 53-year-old woman in Massachusetts, won the largest Powerball lottery in history: $758.7 million. She chose the lump-sum option of $480.5 million, or $336 million after taxes. Awesome! Now I am going to teach you what to do if you ever win the lottery, a massive inheritance, or any other huge infusion of cash. 1/3 of lottery winners go bankrupt and I’ll be damned if I’m going to let ...

My first car was a rickety 12-year-old van that belonged to my parents. Actually, to call it “rickety” is being overly generous. That thing was a death trap. I remember having to drive in the right lane so when it broke down (not if) I could pull over without hassle. In my last year of college, while I was driving to a bunch of business meetings, I decided enough was enough ...

We’ve all been there before: You just bought something with your debit card — maybe a latte or dinner with a friend — only to find out later that you didn’t have enough money in the account. No big deal. You can just move some funds from your savings to your checking account (some banks might even automatically do this for you). BUT you soon get a notification from your bank telling ...
