It’s officially been one year since I started blogging here on Stretching My Money. Did I think I’d make it this far? Definitely not. But here I am, one year later!
In that time, I have personal favourite posts that resonated with many of you, and others that didn’t. But heck – this is my anniversary so I’m going to list my favourite posts from the past year, regardless of the number of views:
#1 Got plans for retirement? Don’t wait till 65. – A really popular post. I learned a lot from my girlfriend’s late father, but the biggest lesson was remembering to balance living in the now. Focusing too much on the future can rob us of our present.
#2 What Improv Classes Taught Me About Life & Lifestyle – I did training at The Second City and so while I’m supposed to be certifiably funny, I decided to divert my energy in writing about how it’s helped my frugal philosophy.
#3 My Biggest Financial Mistake – I bought a $30,900 depreciating asset. Check it out to see what I learned from that horrid mistake.
#4 Laziness is Costing Us Money – I observe first hand people paying more for things when they don’t need to. The biggest hindrance is our inability to put in that extra bit of effort.
#5 Quintupling My Salary in 7 Years – My career journey has been certainly bizarre, but that also helped me have huge salary gains over the past 7 years. Here are the lessons I took away from my career so far.
So one year and one top 5 list down, hopefully many more to come.
Thanks for reading!
