1.) 7 Instant Tips for Saving More Money in 2019 by Money Buffalo
Looking for ways to boost your saving in 2019? This post is a great place to get inspired to start cutting expenses. I did #6, it only took an hour or so, and I shaved nearly $100 off my monthly bills! It’s crazy how every little bit adds up.
Money Buffalo has tons of tricks to start saving more money! He also lives in the great state of TN, so clearly he is my best friend.
2.) 2018 IN REVIEW: SUCCESSES, FAILURES, AND BIG NEWS (!!!) by Wise Mind Money
My personal finance soup snake had an incredible 2018! She got to meet me (the highlight of her year), IS GROWING A BABY (close second highlight to meeting me), AND paid $20k towards her student loan debt. TWENTY-THOUSAND DOLLARS. On a therapist/nanny and teaching salary. She is incredible.
Reading about her accomplishments in 2018 was crazy motivating.
3.) About those 2018 Goals… by FIREd Up About Finance
I am ALLLL about reading about other’s goals. Yearly goal re-cap posts are my favorite. It’s always fascinating to see different variations of goals and people’s methods to crush them.
And JP freaking maxed out her 401(k) so she’s clearly a badass. Check out her goal recap and get motivated to save for retirement.
4.) Every Dollar I Spent Last Year by FI Mechanic
FI Mechanic is the best new personal finance blog on the scene. This post has incredible travel photos, some sweet graphs, and actual snapshots of her spending from Personal Capital. And not to spoil anything but SHE SPENT UNDER $20K IN ONE YEAR. WHAT.
How do people live on so little? Seriously.
5.) Wrapping up 2018 by Josh Overmyer
Josh had one heck of a year. And the travel accomplished this year is #goals. Despite his bumpy year at his job, he still looked back at 2018 positively and summed it up as his best year.
Love reading positive reflections! It’s SO easy to focus on the few bad things that happened in your year and let those define all the 365 days. His posts will also motivate you to book your FinCon ticket 🙂
How was your 2018? And what are your goals for 2019!?
