Timeless Articles from the Archives #31

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.


IRA Choices - Roth or Traditional? - My conclusion is that the Roth is better, but YMMV.

Why I Don't Judge People By Their Car - I'm doomed to a life of being perceived as an dangerous driver who is not wealthy :-)

More On The Only Savings Strategy You'll Ever Need - Yes, we only needed one.

Our Saving Plan For College - We're saving at about 1/2 the needed rate.


March Is Consolidation Month - I succeeded for the bank accounts, but not for credit cards and brokerages.

Front Page Of The Newspaper Test - A good rule by which to live.

Why We Will Spend More During Retirement - Our discretionary spending has increased.


Finding a New Sweet Spot for Investing - I have invested in both areas.

Bear Market Maxims - Published 2 days after the bottom. How prescient :-)

Retirement Plans - 2009 will be a year of financial adjustments - It was good to have a plan B. We did everything except take a full time job.


Experts with Whom I like to Consult - Here are five experts I use.

Our Daughter Negotiates a Raise - A good skill to learn :-)

Top Three Things to Like about (Early) Retirement - Some good reasons to retire early.

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