Timeless Articles from the Archives #6

It's been over four years since I started My Wealth Builder. As I think about topics to write , I often remember, "I've written about that before," and decide to find a new topic. However, since many principles of personal finance are timeless, I want to include them in a recent post on My Wealth Builder. Therefore, I am starting a series called "Timeless Articles from the Archives" that will highlight posts from the same week in 2006-2009.

For the week in 2006, I wrote To Budget or Not to Budget ... in which I shared our budget strategy of saving first and then spending the rest. I also wrote about Frugal or Stingy? which shared theoretical examples of both characteristics. In Avoiding an Expensive Mortgage Mistake, I wrote about my concern with adjustable rate mortgages and our preference for conservative fixed rates mortgages. Finally, I wrote how I like Using Other People's Money to Save.

For the week in 2007, I wrote a number of great timeless articles. ForTime or Money - Which Is More Important To Me?, I concluded time was the answer. In Reduce 2007 Taxes: Accelerate Deductions or Delay Income, I wrote how being able to time deductions or income could reduce tax liability. Some Money Rules of Thumb I Use shared ones from an that I used. Financial Lessons From My Parents shared my top five lessons that I learned. Finally, in Business Week - Retiring Early Strategies: The Forties, I evaluated the strategies shared and added perspective based on my experience.

For the week in 2008, I wrote Will this Financial Crisis become a Panic? I thought the answer was no, but it turned out to be yes.

For the week of 2009, I wrote Lessons From the Crash which we are still following in 2010.

To me, the content of these posts are still relevant today and were worth reading again.
