After seeing the share market take a wonderful and scary dive at the start of February, I started thinking about how it felt to me - seeing the value of my investments drop by a couple of thousand - and how it would feel to others with bigger accounts.While I'm early in my journey and quite happy to see market values drop so I can acquire more for less, I'm ...

I'm back! Sort of! I got one blog post out in February, and plan to post once a month for the rest of the year. After that my stint as a Treasurer will be over, as well as one of the extra committees I've signed myself up for. So 2019 should be a boring quiet year where I can focus on writing a lot more.But between now and then, I ...

One of my Australian FIRE blogger friends Pat the Shuffler was recently featured on ABCnews.Not only was it a good read, but the bottom half of the internet (i.e. the comments section) was highly entertaining.But one ongoing comment that I want to address has been a bane of the FIRE community for years. "Hope he likes eating two minute noodles, because no one can live on $40k a year."What is ...

Where in the world is LadyFIRE' I've been pretty silent around here but I've almost locked down that promotion I've been chasing. I have a verbal confirmation, but I'm not popping the champagne till I get the paperwork, and the payrise.Still, it means I've been crazy busy and barely sparing a thought for this blog. It creeps into my head as I'm falling asleep each night, but during the daylight ...

November is the real start of summer! And it has been the start of businesses ramping up for Christmas, and my investments have all performed admirably. I've been completely disengaged from this blog dealing with professional turmoils at work, but I'm cautiously optimistic this shake up will lead to some career leaps, more money and more responsibility if I can play my cards right - and not lose my temper ...

What a month! It was crazy expensive, I saved a tonne of money and I went out, with people! I'm not a huge social butterfly but I'm always up for a good costume party. There was a hint for summer for a day or two, and then winter laughed and laughed and took over again. At least the finances went well.Read more » ...

Hello Budget Reboot, have you tried turning it off and on again'Money saving posts are always the same - stop doing this, stop buying that, stop having any fun and live a sad deprived life while watching the numbers in your bank account tick up and up. Of course, they don't frame it that way, but when someone asks you to give up something you love in the name of ...

I dream of a home in the country, with sprawling green meadows filled with cows. A dog or two sprawled at my feet and hens clucking in the distance while I drink fresh coffee with a dash of today's milk. I picture an orchard with every kind of fruit tree, with my hens running and digging under the trees. I dream of a wide open space where I can walk ...

Investing can be tricky, daunting and just plain hard. In many cases the struggle doesn't end when you finally buy an investment, because then you need to manage it. You watch the value of stocks, make sure rentals have a good tenant and deal with the constantly changing value and cashflow.One way to get the most out of your investments with minimal effort is with a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRP)Read ...
