Summary & Why I like it: In this post, Bobby outlines several ways to get more out of your monthly budget. Unlike some articles that are “theoretical,” Bobby provides very practical advice. After reading this, you can walk away with some tangible help. Personally, I know for sure I can eat more veggies (it’ll make more sense after you read the article!). As always, another great piece from Millennial Money Man… Definitely a good read!
“You should assume everything in life can be had for a lower price until you’re told no.”
“Take some time and evaluate if you are overspending on your living expenses (i.e. living somewhere that is larger or more expensive than what you really need).”
“If you’re still working on debt that’s higher than 3-4%, you may want to take a look at refinancing now while rates are still very low.”

Summary & Why I like it: In this guest post, Chris walks you through the basics of investing, including a good outline on the array of investment choices possible. When you check out his page it’s obvious he’s put a lot of time into it! What’s nice about this post is that Chris is able to simplify a very complex topic. Whether you’re a new or experienced investor, you’re likely to pick up something new. One word of caution for our Canadian friends that it is a little US-centric so heads up if you’re looking for some advice north of the border.
“Investing can be very easy to understand. You can dive as shallow or deep as you want in the investment knowledge pool.”
- The best way to invest is to think differently
- The high cost of waiting to invest – why are you waiting?
