In Part I, we talked about organizing a cash flow system to set yourself up for financial success. I have accounts in two different currencies as well as business and rental accounts. And, my goal is still to spend less than 15 minutes per week managing my cash flow. How? Automation and organization! I’ve totally […] The post Part II: How I’m Organizing My Finances in 2019 (Organizing Financial Paperwork) appeared ...

I’ve always loved organizing. There’s something about things being neat and tidy that makes me feel like my life itself is a little bit less messy too (maybe that’s a little crazy?). So naturally, years ago when I started really getting my finances in order, it was important to me to find a really organized […] The post Part I: How I’m Organizing My Finances in 2019 (Setting up a Cash ...

This past year was especially difficult. I wasn’t sad to see it go. Not at all. I didn’t meet most of my goals I’d set at the beginning of the year. I especially feel like “simplify”, my word for 2018, was the exact opposite of how the year turned out. Adjusting to life back at […] The post 2019: The Year of “Simplify” (or rather…can I have a do-over please?) appeared ...

Many people turn their financial lives around after hitting rock bottom. A crushing debt load or a sudden financial crisis spurs them to make drastic changes. That’s not my story. I didn’t hit a low. Instead, it was the opposite that changed my financial life. Years ago, we embarked on our first big travel adventure. […] The post 5 Money Mindset Shifts I’ve Made After Discovering FIRE (as an outsider of ...

This post may contain affiliate links. See my disclosure here. You already know I’m a diehard spreadsheet fan. Especially when it comes to tracking all things money. And, I’m certainly not alone in my level of spreadsheet geekiness. Spreadsheets are the tool of choice for many, many financially successful people around the world (and the world wide […] The post Why Spreadsheets are the Best Way to Handle Your Personal Finances (A Sneak ...

My email subscribers all know that my family has recently relocated (that’s why you haven’t seen me around here much lately!). We’re talking about a BIG relocation…from the suburbs of Detroit to Shanghai, China. And while we’ve lived abroad before (in South Korea and even in China for a short time), it’s been just as […] The post How Getting Out of Our Comfort Zone Is 10X-ing Our Finances appeared first ...

Ignorance certainly isn’t bliss when it comes to anything in personal finance, and that’s especially true for taxes. Sure, you can hire someone to complete your tax returns for you. But you are the one making the day-to-day decisions that will impact the numbers that ultimately go on the tax form. Now that your taxes […] The post Understanding Your Marginal Tax Rate (And Why It’s Essential to Know!) appeared first ...

Today we have something different other than just a regular blog post. You may have noticed that it’s especially quiet here on the blog over the last couple months. While I’ve tried to keep up with everything as much as possible–raising a young family, work, life–I’m absolutely swamped. Tax season is in full swing and […] The post What Personal Finance Questions Do You Have? {My 2018 Blog Survey} appeared first ...
