I read a post the other day where they mentioned Christmas was only 40 days away. At first I thought it was a typo, but then I realized they were right! The next few weeks are so busy but are a favorite time of mine. How is everyone doing with their Christmas shopping?
This week I shared a great infographic on What You Need to Know about Life Insurance. It’s not always a topic that people are comfortable discussing, but it’s important to protect your most valuable asset—your family. It gives me great peace of mind knowing that may family will be financially okay if the unthinkable happens.
A Few a Good Reads
Here are my favorite posts from the past week. Enjoy!
Grayson at Debt Roundup shared the Gift of Debt: Enjoying My Hobby. We don’t often consider debt to be a gift, but it does offer us some powerful lessons as Grayson shared with us.
FI Pilgrim from FI Journey shared Financial Lessons I Remember Learning from My Dad. My father taught me about money, and I loved hearing the great lessons other fathers are teaching their kids,.
Andrew from Living Rich Cheaply had some great information on Tax Shelters for You and Me. The end of the year is fast approaching, so now is a great time to see if there are any tax moves you can make now to help lower your bill come April.
Laurie from The Frugal Farmer shared How Paying Off Debt Is Like Running a Marathon at Three Thrifty Guys. Just like running a marathon, eliminating debt requires perseverance and keeping an eye on the finish line.
Anna at Are Ya Gonna Eat That reminded us about the importance of Giving To Those in Need. We can get caught up in our own problems, but when tragedy strikes like it did in the Philippines, it gives us perspective. In the month where we give thanks, now is the perfect time to give to those in need here and abroad.
Well, that’s a wrap for this. Have a great weekend everyone!
