February 2024 Article Roundup

All month I’m constantly reading. Be it various FIRE and personal finance blogs that I subscribe to, random things that pop into my feed, or suggestions from these aforementioned blogs. I keep a list of all of the stuff that I encounter throughout the month then filter those down to the best or most interesting which get included here.

The focus of these roundups is mostly on FIRE but other personal finance or other content I think could be interesting to the readers of this blog. If I got it from another blog’s roundup I try to give credit when I can.

With all those caveats out of the way, let’s get into it.

I liked this post from the Best Interest talking about how our money mindset can effect our financial choices.

While I don’t agree with everything in this 1500 Days post. I thought it was a good counter to some of my own thoughts and arguments about the 4% rule.

Another reminder that index funds are an easier form of portfolio management from A Wealth of Common Sense.

Is the US stock market too concentrated in tech stocks or even just a handful of stocks? A Wealth of Common Sense discusses this common critic of the US stock market.

Are all time highs just a signal of the beginning of the end or not? A Wealth of Common Sense takes a look at the data.

Housing seems to a perennial topic these days. A Wealth of Common Sense takes a look at the data on where housing is still reasonable.

A common thought is that young people are doing terribly financially. However, this A Wealth of Common Sense post disagrees.

Are stocks still the best choice for the long run in investing? Early Retirement Now digs into the data.

Building off of the last post, Early Retirement Now also explores if the 100% stock portfolio is optimal for the long run.

Financial Samurai takes a look at what it means when one is no longer FI. I thought it was an interesting post.

A lot of critiques I’ve seen of wealth and what it means for our happiness were echoed in this post from FInancial Samurai. I thought it made for a good read.

Financial Samurai tackles some of the issues with Coast FIRE. Some of them I agree with and have echoed here. Some of them were new to me.

Sometimes simpler is better, Keep it Stupid Simple is a saying for a reason. Sometimes its just nostalgia. Money with Katie takes a look at this. Especially as it relates to housing.

I thought the budgeting methods discussed in this Money with Katie post were interesting. I’d give it a read.

Of Dollars and Data takes a look at some of the most overrated things in personal finance. While I didn’t agree with all of them I thought some of the points were interesting.

This Humble Dollar post takes a look at the opposite end of the FIRE spectrum, calling it ICE. I thought it was interesting. I stole this one from Physician on FIRE’s own roundup.

That’s it for this month’s posts. I was kind of all over the place with what I liked. I guess that’s kind of how the weather has been for about half of this month too though.
