I found a great all in one article on CNNMoney.com today. It’s not a site I regularly frequent, but this article is definitely top notch. It covers “10 simple strategies for finally achieving your financial goals“.
It takes a deeper look into saving more money, investing smarter, getting out of debt, getting your career kick-started, and more.
It’s actually a collection of 10 articles, and will take some time to get through all of them, but it’s time well spent.
With the rising costs of health care, it’s important to take care of your body. My wife and I were very very sick a couple of years ago. It cost for the doctor visit, the missed time from work, affected attendance history, etc. Since then, we started taking vitamins, and have hardly been ill since then. The general feeling of a better well-being is worth it alone. We’re also likely to live longer, be productive longer, and be able to enjoy life longer. With this, our investments will continue to grow longer. We’ve been using BetterLife for our vitamin source for about two years, but thanks to Froogle we’ve been able to find a better supplier. We ordered Kal Vitality For Women and Solaray Twice Daily Multi Energy Iron-Free. They delivered faster, and for 7$ cheaper for our regular order. We order two month supplies at a time. Five minutes on Froogle and the courage to try a new vendor will save me $55 or more for the year.
Some key lessons here:
- Do your research on your expenses.
- Do your research on your vendors.
- You might get a better deal somewhere else.
- Don’t be afraid to try new things.
