Timeless Articles from the Archives #4

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 How Much is Needed to Be Wealthy - THE NUMBER . In this post, I determined that 20 times my salary was the number.

For the week in 2007, I wrote about Business Week - Retiring Early Strategies: The Twenties. In this post, I evaluated the strategies shared and added perspective based on my experience.

For the week in 2009, in Successfully Reduced Property Taxes , I wrote how I took advantage of the real estate crash to reduce our property taxes by over 16%. Given the slow recovery of the housing market, there is still time to use the lower housing values to reduce property taxes.

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

For more on The Practice of Personal Finance, check back every Wednesday for a new segment.
