Wedding Regrets Two Years Later
   HEREVERYCENTCOUNTS.COM

Well…. this is as First World as it gets. To be honest, my budget conscious mind had an incredibly hard time even comprehending why someone would spend $70,000 (over twice the annual median income in America) to exchange wedding vows in the first place. And then of course with such expectations often come disappointment… and this story certainly ends in disappointment. So glad me and my wife Nicole spent almost nothing on our wedding, and everything on the honeymoon!

C.J. Cato and Lee Huffman

Lee Huffman, the writer of this post over on BaldThoughts, is actually a friend of mine. I met him at FinCon a couple years back and we’ve stayed in touch since, we even met up when he was in Austin not too long ago. Lee’s one of those guys that has big ideas and actually acts on them. We also have a lot in common as he works in Finance, has a blog, similarly aged kiddos, and he “had” a long commute. (damn you Lee!) This post is very encouraging because you can see how Lee has wiggled his way out of corporate America and into life as a full time entrepreneur. In this post he shares some of the advice he was given along the way, and adds some of his own.

How to Save $100K: The Journey to this Incredible Milestone
   INVESTEDWALLET.COM

I really like how Todd at the Invested Wallet writes about how exactly he is getting to $100,000 in savings. While all of the strategies he uses are ones you can use, and are very logical, what was most impressive was his income, or lack of it. Most of these, “How I got to $XXX,XXX dollars” articles are written by people that have enormous salaries, are married to someone else with an enormous salary… and have no kids. But that wasn’t the case here; this guy was single, didn’t make much, but simply got organized and exercised some self-control. Certainly worth the read. – Read The Article
