The Friday Feast ~ the 3rd of February

  1. It seems a common theme the month that people are afraid the market is over inflated. I think the Dow article you picked this week did a good job of pointing out why it’s all just noise and you should stick to your plan.

  2. Favorite post is a good one. I’m personally trying to take a balanced approach – meaning continuing to regularly invest into the market, while also stashing away a little more cash than usual.

  3. In our city it’s actually a wash between renting and home ownership. I think it’s tough to apply a blanket “right or wrong” when it comes to owning property; it depends on your location and FIRE plans.

    1. That’s very true – it all depends on where you live and your circumstances. For me, homeownership was a devastating financial decision, but nothing that I didn’t escape from in the end. But for others, it can be incredibly lucrative.

  4. I appreciate the Friday Feast and the links to other interesting blogs. I’ve found some good stuff that way. I also started wearing my pants a few more days after I read an article about the CEO of Levis saying he does it too. Washing your jeans so much really wears them out. Enjoy your nice pictures and videos. And good to see you’ve really made it. A friday night at the swap meet and a huge thing of popcorn. It doesnt get any better than that! 😉

  5. Thanks for all the great links! I’m excited to check out some of these blogs that are new to me. It still amazes me with all the content already out there, there’s still plenty of new and exciting material in the PF blog world.

  6. Thanks for posting this roundup, and introducing me to several personal finance bloggers I wasn’t familiar with. The “Power of wearing your pants twice(or more)” resonated with me, since I have been working to tame the laundry situation for my family (my teenaged son does his part by leaving it all on the floor and re-wearing items indefinitely). Also, the graphs on that post were so detailed.

    I’m looking forward to reading your archives.

  7. Thanks for mention Steve! A big honour to pop up on your Friday feast..
    Interesting swap meet there as well, looked like you guys had some great fun and I’ve got a bit of food envy seeing the popcorn and salsa 😉

  8. I’ve been to the Tanque Verde swap meet but was not impressed. I don’t need any of the stuff they are selling. I would have to go back if there were more people selling like a flea market, but what the stalls are selling just doesn’t interest me.

    Some great posts from the community. Quiet Habits really was going overboard there with their jean washing schedule. Pants hardly need washing after all, and more frequent washing just wears them out faster making you need to buy more!

    1. Yeah, we went primarily for the fun of it…and to film our experience. We bought nothing other than the popcorn. Still a fun thing to do on a Friday night. 🙂
