Timeless Articles from the Archives #28

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 have started a series called "Timeless Articles from the Archives" and am highlighting posts from the same week in 2007-2010.


Why Aren't We All Wealthy (Yet) ? - Here are four reasons that I think we are not all wealthy yet.

Stages Of A Career - Some thought on where one should be at different ages.

An AMT Tax Benefit - Really - This onerous does have one small benefit: not having to claim a state or local tax refund as income in the subsequent year.


Tax Season Humor: A Simple Tax Return - A look at a very simple tax return :-)

Asia: The Next Land Of Opportunity? - It isn't obvious to me that the United States will maintain being the land of opportunity in the 21st century.

Stressful Personal Finance Situations We Like To Avoid - I prefer that my personal finances be boring and uneventful. No living of the edge for us, when it comes to personal finance.

Three Ways We Maximized Our Retirement Savings - Here some great steps we took to maximize our retirement savings.


Reduce Spending without Sacrificing Lifestyle #4 - Be Choiceful on Options - We choose only the options we need when making a purchase.

Renaissance Man - After retiring, I took a number of courses to broaden my knowledge.

Now Another Reason to Owe Taxes Instead of Getting a Refund - I don't need an I.O.U from a bankrupt state government.


Contracts - Read and Understand before Signing - I am a big believer that I should read and understand every document before signing, especially when related to financial matters. I never assume that signing is just a formality.

Our Approach to Buying a House - Our conservative approach has enabled us to pay a reasonable price, get some appreciation, and not lose too much during the housing crash.

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