Happy Saturday everyone! Today I’m hanging out at home and installing a new dishwasher for my wife. This is something we’ve been planning to purchase for a little while, and earlier this week we finally pulled the trigger. Hopefully nothing goes wrong, otherwise I might have to write a post about it. 🙂
Any other fun weekend projects going on out there?
- Mitchell Pauly from Snark Finance wrote a post over at Club Thrifty this week on Three Habits of High Performers. Now, when you first read this post you might think “yeah, I would have guessed all that… what’s the big deal?” But how many of us actually do all of those things? They are much easier read than done. The weekly goals piece has been a huge help for me over the last few years, both at home with my family and at work getting projects moved forward.
- As a father of a two year old and a four year old, I really enjoyed Money Bulldog’s article on The Good Financial Habits You Can Teach Your Kids. This is a subject that I think about quite a bit.
- I thought Bob over at More Money Than Month had a good write-up on the basics of the Affordable Care Act’s new marketplaces, 9 Things you need to know about the new healthcare marketplace
- I love goal-setting, so I appreciated Brian’s question in What’s More Valuable: Short or Long-Term Goals? Especially as we begin winding down the year, but really it’s always a good time to review your goals and see what needs to change (or to celebrate!).
