Recommended Financial Reading If…

I’ve been catching up on the feeds that I subscribe to via google reader the past couple of days and ran across some financial stuff I think I should share with folks that might be reading.

You might want to read this post about finances after marriage if you’re a married couple and one or both of you are having a hard time coming together and working as a team on your finances. I know you know everything right now in your young little know-it-all world because WE’ve BEEN THERE TOO (I stressed ‘we’ because it wasn’t just my problem or hers – it was OUR problem). Getting things worked out in our finances has been one of the most significant decisions in our marriage to make it successful up until now and into the death do us part. We just celebrated our 8th anniversary – which is a long marriage these days – so I’d say we’re doing something right. I also recommend you dive in to Joe Sangl, his book, and his Next Steps site. Just go ahead and read all of that, every blog post, book, and web link – you’re gonna need it.

You might want to read this post if you’re the knuckle-headed couple who might need an example of the logic to use when making decisions. Now you can stop thinking the above didn’t apply to you. I’m going to throw out a statement that applies to a real couples situation. I’m not trying to attack them. I don’t feel bad for using their example. It might relate to others out there who, like this couple, have not been listening to sound financial advice from either me or folks like Joe Sangl who know what their talking about. Here it goes… If you’re married and dreaming of leaving the parents property you’re never going to get there making dumb decisions to buy a new car and bedroom furniture with ‘your’ money. It isn’t ‘your’ money. It’s ‘our’ (you an your spouse) money. If you’re offended because I’m blogging this – good. I’d rather offend you now and watch you go through some tough change than say nothing now and watch you go through some tough brokenness financially. You are not invincible with your four or five jobs between the two of you, and what kind of life is that anyway. Your situation could change tomorrow. Would you still be able to afford all your stuff?

 You might want to read this post about where some fun money terminology comes from if you’re like me and say ‘bringing home the bacon’ or other such terms. Hope that lightens the mood after my abrasive tone above.

And last but not least. If you’ve got the money to shop on black Friday (or if you’re dumb enough to put it on your credit card after all that I said above) you might want to read this post and stay tuned for when he shares more details on more deals.
