I’m a bit of a personal finance nerd. And this is my personal finance brain dump. I enjoy reading books, listening to podcasts, and fiddling with spreadsheets about personal finance. After spending far too much time on this hobby I’m going through and writing short blog posts about a few facets of personal finance. This is mostly for my own edification as sitting down and writing about something forces me to collect my thoughts.¬†This is an outline of the articles I plan on writing. Completed articles will have a link.
