Financial Wisdom (from others)

I like this post from I will teach you to be rich, one of the personal finance blogs I read - specifically this part:

"But by reducing the number of things to focus on — and picking major, important items — you don’t need to worry about that one-off latte or extra $20 you spent on shoes. If you’re handling your major goals, the minor details fall out of that. "

And for those of you who make fun of me for being so cheap I offer Exhibit A: The Simple Dollar, a blog and community that follows that is much more extreme than K and I.

I also like this post that discusses how people shouldn't get tied down in minutiae: "The point is that we love to debate minutiae. We love to debate details at the completely wrong level of analysis. When it comes to weight loss, 99.99% of people only need to know 2 things:Eat healthier and exercise more. Only Olympic athletes need to know more."
