Friday’s Finest Personal Finance Articles (05/26/2017)

Personal Finance Articles SavingHappy Friday, friends!

Last weekend we attended my niece’s high school graduation. I clearly remember the day she was born, holding her in my arms for the first time. She doesn’t know this, but she’s the one that convinced me I wanted to have my own kids. It’s funny, as I was sitting there at her graduation, I was thinking it didn’t really seem all that long ago!

Time doesn’t slow down as you get older, that’s for sure. I decided right then and there, it’s time to slow down the pace. Only one more year and my son will graduate too. I intend to make the most of that year! Time is precious

I have some great posts to share with you today! You may notice a slight millionaire theme…which was totally unintentional. As always, it’s all about sharing. So, if you’ve read (or written) a great post you want to share, please feel free to link to it in the comments. Enjoy!

  1. Wow I haven’t read any of these posts. Need to check them out right now. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks for including my post this week! I hope that millionaire status doesn’t get demoted by the time I finally reach it (like now the new millionaire is a decamillionaire instead or something, lol).
    I absolutely love that Rich Habits series and J$’s take on the millionaire spending habits was definitely worth reading.

    1. Great post – I’m happy to share! I love the Rich Habits too – it’s interesting to compare our own habits to those who have reached millionaire status. That’s one of the reasons I love The Millionaire Next Door.

  3. Thanks so much for including me:) I must check out that monster list of free things to do!

    1. Happy to include your post, Latoya! You’re sure to find something on that list to do!
