The personal finance community is filled with so many talented writers and inspiring families in search of something better out of life than the traditional society-approved plan of buying lots of stuff and retiring in your 60s if you’re lucky.
Here is a look at the best of this week’s personal finance blogs.
In this episode of Friday Feast: Financial Gusto, Andy Hill, Cottage Retreatist, Frugal Woods, Two Cents Together, Budget Peace, Get Rich Quickish, Graeme Falco, The Budget Boy, Mr Tako Escapes.
Welcome to the end of another week. The Friday Feast is my opportunity to highlight some of the best personal finance content that I read during the week. Both old and new articles get mentioned here because I enjoy going through people’s posting archives.
Now, on to the personal finance blogosphere!
I have a question: Kid’s college or retirement? Financial Gusto answers this doozy of a question.
And hey, check out the podcast interview I did with Andy Hill, who hosts the newish Marriage, Kids and Money podcast. Lots of fun, and Andy’s a natural at this.
My favorite post of the week
My favorite post for this week comes from Cottage Retreatist who writes of her wickedly awesome goal for 2017: Give less fucks.
Her motto for 2017 is simple, clear and effective: Reduce the number of fucks you give in 2017 and focus on what makes your life meaningful.
Beautiful. Check out the things she actually finds to be meaningful in her life…as well as the things that can fuck off.

How many bank accounts do you have? Budget Peace makes the case that maybe only one is enough.
Lastly, Get Rich Quickish whips out some wise advice: Leave it better than you found it. Always make progress, add value and be happy.
Video of the week
Check out beautiful Snow Canyon just outside of St. George, UT. We hiked through volcanic rock and through a slot canyon. Beautiful area.
Coming up in the week ahead on ThinkSaveRetire: On Monday, I am publishing a guest post (her first ever!) from a blogger you know and love about what it’s like to fly high for a living, and on Wednesday I am giving the best advice I possibly can about early retirement.
Thanks for reading, and cheers to another financially productive week ahead!
