Diamonds in the Rough Roundup 3/7/14

Yet another snowstorm for the East Coast but a warm weekend ahead.  Here are my picks for the week:

The Ultimate Retirement Account by Mad Fientist:  I gave an overview abouts HSA’s here.  But Mad Fientist gives a new twist on it which shows how great of an account it actually can be.

Got Those Old Wanderlust Blues?  Don’t Be Worried About Moving House Too Often by A Young Pro:  Most people have the idea that they eventually have to “settle down” because it’s the right thing to do personally and financially.  This article argues that moving frequently is not only not bad, but it can make you richer if you sell at the right time and move for the right reasons.

The 30 second habit with a lifelong impact by Robyn Scott:  Well written piece about one habit that can potentially change your life.  Will definitely give it a try.

Why We are Not Really All Doomed by Mr Money Mustache:  Inspiring article and a great reminder that things are probably not going to be all that bad.  We should focus on improving ourselves and giving our best effort for society.

The Cost of Living in the Suburbs by Suburban Finance:  Living in the suburbs has its advantages over city living, and vice versa.  This article goes into some of the costs of living a suburban life.  If you enjoy living in the suburbs, it would be a good idea to get these costs down as much as possible.



  1. We finally had beautiful weather in NYC this weekend, but today, “chance of now” :/

      Yeah it’s starting to warm up now in the DC area this week. Can’t wait till all the snow is gone! But once we’re in the dog days of summer, we’ll be waiting for fall.

  2. I didn’t notice that you mentioned SF! Thanks so much for the link.
