I'd like to hear some advice from the forums on where I should focus my energies next. You might have read my story as part of an "Ask the Readers" question a while back - http://www.getrichslowly.org/blog/2007/09/14/ask-the-readers-am-i-saving-too-much/ My wife and I have scaled back our ...

Rather than go into a huge amount of detail about the "big picture" of financial success, I thought I'd share a bit of the "little picture" - simple things that I've done that have helped me along the way. One occurred this past weekend - while grocery shopping I noticed that our...

I'm not one for reading a book more than once, so I've never seen the point of buying books. Other people (i.e. my wife) are the opposite... they accumulate books like they're going out of style. I'm convinced that some people just keep getting books because it makes them feel more literate, or more...

One thing I've noticed is that podcasts require vastly different talents when compared with blogging. Ever see/hear a print journalist doing a piece on the TV or radio? Often they sound flat and uninspiring. I have no idea what JD sounds like or whether his cadence, voice style, and enthusiasm would...

All I can say is that it's extremely difficult to prepare for children, financially or otherwise. There are expenses that you won't even imagine, and there are life changes that simply can't be prepared for until they happen to you. That said, all the standard advice about good personal finance mana...

Since we bought our house, we've just paid the utility bills as they came, without giving much thought to the "equal payment" plans. My logic was that paying for what we used, when we used it, would help motivate us to conserve water, natural gas, and electricity. Of course, it did that, a...

I'm really envious of people who can cheerfully watch TV on their computers. I've DONE it, but after 40 minutes of watching a 3x5 inch screen, my eyes hate me. Just because you download a TV show, doesn't mean you have to watch it on your computer. A DVD burner combined with a DVD player that plays...

We've got a Vermont Castings grill (no idea the model number, but it's the one that's been top-rated in Consumer Reports for their past few reviews) and love it. It was about $700CDN at Home Depot, but worth every penny. We justified the purchase by viewing it as a major appliance. Considering how m...

I'm with CD. I like my lifestyle right now, and I like where I'm living. The idea of spending all day sailing a boat or writing a book doesn't appeal to me. I like the idea of simply having more time to spend with my children (and at some point, grandchildren), and volunteering for causes I think ar...

If your tax assessment doesn't happen yearly, it's fairly easy to look up housing prices for comparable homes, and get a reasonable estimate from that. You could also call up a real estate agent, and ask them to estimate your home's worth. Most realtors will do this as a free service, on the hope th...

I calculate net worth for us as a family - if I want to know my "personal" net worth, I just divide the family number in half. Since I'm using Quicken, I include everything into my net worth calculation other than insurance policies and personal possessions other than the big ones (home an...

JD suggests that an intro go here, so here goes: I'm 29, Canadian, married with kids (1 toddler, another on the way), and am thankful I bought a home before housing prices took several huge leaps. I've been following the "Get Rich Slowly" philosophy for quite some time now, and learned of ...
