Timeless Articles from the Archives #5

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 to Save - THE NUMBER . In this post, I concluded 16 to 18 times salary. Fortunately, I retired after saving 23 times my salary which provided a buffer when the stock market crashed. I also wrote about Getting Motivated to Save. My best reason is "Always having money for what I need."

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

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.

This is not financial, saving, retirement, or tax advice. Please consult a professional advisor.
