I am going to start to post some very small articles on Saturdays. They are going to consist of polls, small snippets that make you think or quick updates. I am also going to include a roundup in the post each week. So, make sure you check in on the weekends to read up on some articles that I found interesting over the past week!
Anyway, I thought today would be a good time to assess the status of everyones debt. I have always been interested to see how much debt you all have.
Please be assured that I am not collecting ANY personal information with this poll. It’s just that, a poll. Once you are finished, make sure you check out the great blogs that are listed below! If you are reading this and cannot see the poll, click here to come to the site.
Is Being Rich Important For Living The Ideal Life? This is a great post on how being rich shouldn’t be your main goal in life. There are other “life currencies” that you should be striving for. (@scott h young)
Worth More Than Money: Taking a Detour On The Road to Riches. Sierra (a writer at Get Rich Slowly) recently got out of credit card debt. However, before she paid the last bill, she spent over $5,000 to take a trip to visit family in Argentina. I’ve kind of talked about this before. Sometimes you may need to take a break and do something exciting. If my wife and I just sat her for 10 years while getting out of debt, we would go crazy. (@get rich slowly)
Are You Spending Intentionally? This was my favorite quote from the post: “Living a frugal lifestyle is about using money intentionally. It is not about using the least amount of money to fund your lifestyle, rather it is about maximizing the money we do have by making its spending a reflection of our values.” (@frugal dad)
Have a great weekend!
