It’s that time of week again – Summary Sunday. Time to see what’s happening around the world of personal finance websites! Today I’m bringing you three posts from military personal finance bloggers, but don’t get scared off if you aren’t part of the military community. All of these posts offer something for everyone.
Marine on FIRE – December 10, 2017
Marine on FIRE is going through some shitty stuff right now. I will let you check out his post to see exactly what, because it is his story to tell. However, I wanted to include this post for two reasons.
One, he has a good message about how quickly life can change and what you should do now to prepare for challenges.
Two, I’d love it if you would all go visit his page and offer words of support in the comments. Our brother-in-arms needs it. Thanks in advance.
Poppin’ Smoke – January 25, 2017
I’ve only stayed in AirBnB places a few times, but I plan to utilize them more and more. There are some really great places to stay out there. I stayed in a 3-bedroom apartment with some friends in Krakow Poland that was seriously nice, roomy, in a terrific location within easy walking distance to most attractions, and it was only $70 per night! The sharing economy has really changed the game of travel.
Poppin’ Smoke has some great tips in this post that will make it easier to choose a good short term rental. For instance, I’d never thought to look carefully at the showers in bathroom photos. And I would’ve just trusted that WiFi was available if it was in the amenities list; I didn’t realize there might be more to think about. Check out this post if you want some ideas on how to compare AirBnB listings.
This is an introduction post to a whole bunch of other posts about setting yourself up for financial success. Yes, it is heavily focused on transitioning from the military to civilian life. However, there is great information in here for non-military people too. You can easily choose which ones are most applicable to your circumstances. Topics include credit, investing, college planning, debt, and more.
