Personal finance blog Free Money Finance recently put out a call asking readers for their three best financial moves. Hearing how others get ahead economically can serve as both inspiration and education.
My best moves?
- Reading Your Money or Your Life: This book was pivotal in helping me realise what I value and how to spend my energy working toward building the life I want to live and not wasting the proceeds from my work on frivolous purchases that delay my financial independence.
- Learning to cook. It is amazing how much money you can save by learning to make a few simple meals from basic ingredients. This is way cheaper than constantly eating out or substandard microwavable meals.
- Following personal finance and frugality blogs such as The Simple Dollar, Mr. Money Mustache, and Get Rich Slowly. Together these three blogs provide daily advice and motivation that keeps me focused on the end game.
