J. Money's Best of the Blogs (5/5/17)


1. 6 Things You Don't Know About Money That Are Holding You Back by Jane Hwangbo

“The point is that your personal budget absorbs the shock of a non-monthly expense seamlessly. No lost causes. No planning fails. No hopelessness.”


3. A Different Way of Looking at Spending by Budgets are Sexy 

“I’ve been trying something new lately where every time I have to spend money on something – whether a need or a want – I try to look at it as I’m ‘supporting' the place my money’s going to vs. ‘I'm spending my hard earned money' there.”


4. The $5,000 Question by Wall Street Playboys

“Would you rather work all day today and make $5,000 or would you rather work all day and generate $1 per day forever?”


5. How To Start Your Own Self-Insurance Company by The Micawber Principle

“If you are paying insurance companies to protect you from life’s small emergencies, you should stop immediately and start paying this “regret premium” to yourself.”
