5 Millennial Articles to Read this Week- Round Up #12
Welcome to another round-up! We hope to start your week off right with some motivational and inspiring posts written by millennials! We’ve been busy recording and getting some interviews done for you. Want to come on the show? WE’D LOVE TO HAVE YOU. Shoot us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Now, let’s get to the good stuff! Articles!
Shirts (which is what the community affectionately calls him since he refuses to let me call him S.I.S) breaks down a concept I’ve fallen in love with- Coast FI. I won’t spoil what it is since Shirts clearly put a lot of work into this post. He even has lots of math to back up his points.
The retiring early crowd has seemingly taken over the personal finance community, and it’s always great to see other options and tips to get better with your money!
We had Purple on the show a few weeks ago! Check our her episode here. She is an incredible voice in the personal finance space and plans to retire AT THIRTY. She’s a genius with those Benjamin’s.
Millennials may get a lot of flack as a generation, but one thing I love about us is we buck tradition. Purple breaks down why marriage isn’t a necessity to be happy. She challenged the traditional wisdom of marriage and I love it.
Zero finally started a blog about being a disabled millennial in NYC making below six-figures but still chasing early retirement. I’m SO nosy, and I love seeing how people do money. It’s awesome to peek at other’s budgets. Especially in such a high cost of living city!
It’s crazy to see how little she spends every month and really makes me feel bad about my spending at a lower cost of living area. Thanks, Zero!
This is an oldie but goldie to me. Andy is the smartest aardvark out there, and always has great tips on being more frugal. While I cannot really relate to him since he is one of those magical naturally frugal unicorns, this post really makes you think about your “why.”
He said it best: “I’m frugal because every dollar I earn comes from trading away a portion of my time and energy”
I don’t automate a lot of my finances because I want to face them head-on. And cry about how bad I am with money. 🙂 I also like to make saving/spending money HURT to remind me that it takes a lot to make it. Love seeing other people have this same mindset!
Emilie is crushing student loan debt (paying off over $20k a year towards debt on a teacher and therapist salary) while balancing the fun things in life, like dogs and cookies.
