Part of why I started this blog was to create a forum of discussion. I wanted a place to hold myself accountable to both making good financial choices and doing research toward things that would help me live a better life. So, I do the research, and I put up the steps to take on the blog. The whole struggle is the implementation. But I also hoped in posting these prescriptive things that people would chime in as to what worked for them and what they would add to the list or remove (we had a great start to that happening over at the How to Navigate Finances in Marriage post!). It’s the discussion that helps all of us the most. It’s great to compile a list of the shouldas, but I want to hear from people that are actually doing it!
I’m not telling you what to do. Some of my posts are things that have worked for us. On those, chime in! Disagree with what didn’t work for you! Add what did. Others are based entirely on studies. On those, I hope to implement the steps prescribed, but I have no experience doing so. Again, chime in! Tell us if you have a great tip that has helped you. Let’s get the discussion going. And let’s help each other be better!
Meanwhile, I’ll keep learning from studies and life. And you.
