Today, I thought I’d share eight of the more unusual ideas I’ve discovered during my experiments with personal finance over the past decade or so. These are ideas that have really hit home for me. They make finances make sense to me as part of my life. I’m sharing them because they might make sense to you, too.
I want to stress before we dig in that these aren’t hard and fast financial rules. Each one of them is more than enough to start a great discussion about money and the role it has in our lives. If these ideas spur you to have those discussions, then it’s a great thing. It means you’re thinking about your financial situation in a deep way, even if you don’t come to the same conclusion that I did.
