Welcome to another week of the Women’s Personal Finance Wednesdays roundup. I started this series after months of debate because I wasn’t certain I wanted to up the ante and commit to publishing three posts a week. However, now that I’ve started sharing these posts, I’m so glad I started.
There are so many fabulous women writing about personal finance online, and yet there is still a perception that women aren’t good with money, don’t care about money, or don’t understand it on a granular level beyond perhaps knowing how to coupon and score a good shopping deal. These roundups are my way of doing a small part to change that perception. There are no shortage of women online doing their part to make it clear that they DO understand money, and these posts are meant to amplify that fact.
The hardest part of this post every week always is narrowing it down to my favorites, because there is just so much good content out there.
Our Women’s Personal Finance Facebook groupalso has a sharing thread on Fridays, and that’s the place to read all the blog posts written by members over the previous week. If you’re looking for more articles written by women, that’s a great place to continue reading (plus we have plenty of great discussions on finances the rest of the week as well!).
If you don’t have the time or inclination to go searching down myriad posts, though, I will be continuing this series every week to showcase some of the best of the new content I read. If you ever read a post you think I absolutely need to consider for this roundup, please let me know! I am always open to reading new blogs (and posts of blogs I do know, because I miss some).
Women’s Personal Finance Wednesdays – Week 131
1. A Week Without a Working Lunch She Picks Up Pennies
“In my world, a lunch break has always been synonymous with “extra work time”. So when I lost my lunchtime workspace this month, I was forced to confront an ugly truth.
I am, it seems, incapable of simply eating lunch.
This isn’t just a case of someone who has bought into the multitasking narrative. (Though I have done that hook, line, and sinker.) It’s also the fact that there just isn’t enough time in the day to tend to all of the tasks I
want need to accomplish.
2. What If One Dollar Was Worth One Use? Mixed Up Money
“I want you to imagine a world in which you seriously thought about every purchase you made in your life. A world where impulse buys didn’t exist, and no one ever regretted spending money on something they no longer use. Some of us live this life already. Aware of our needs, understanding what makes sense to purchase and what doesn’t.
The rest of us aren’t quite there yet.”
3. Create an Abundance Mindset & Live a Full Life Goatdog Simple
“While living with a scarcity mindset, you’re holding back on money, time, and personal connections. These restrictions inadvertently thwart the positive effects that we seek in our own lives.
Our actions and energy have an impact on the opportunities that come our way– we get what we give. If we lack in generosity to others, we ourselves will receive less.
I had to make a conscious decision to be more giving and not stingy.”
As always, if you’re looking for a categorized list of self identified women writing and speaking about personal finance, here is my comprehensive guide to the Women of the Financial Independence Community.
