I have just finished working over 70 hour work weeks for two weeks in a row. I should still get about 65 hours this week. It is a lot of hours. Since I get to sleep some of those hours and my work is physically easy, working that many hours isn’t too bad.
The long hours have led to me neglecting my blog. I will try to post at least a couple of times a week. After I get done working I usually don’t feel like blogging though. After tax season is over I plan to take it relatively easy the rest of the year and focus more on blogging and writing.
I have managed to read a few blogs the past couple of weeks. Here are some posts I think you will like.
How to save money shaving by Edward Antrobus. I just recently posted on how to make your own shaving oil, but now that I’ve read this post I’m going to give using conditioner for a shaving lubricant a try.
How to calculate your net worth and why you should by Free in 10 Years. I like his idea of calculating your net worth in terms of years of living expenses. That is somewhat similar to the concept of the safe withdrawal rate that I use.
Seasonal Budgeting by I Heart Budgets. Although I don’t use an actual budget the idea of planning for seasonal fluctuations in your expenses is smart.
Traditional + Roth = Tax Diversification at Financial Ramblings. This is an idea I had read about previously, but totally forgotten about. I will be investing in both a traditional and Roth IRA for the 2012 tax year. That will allow me to save some money on taxes now and also have some tax free income for when I retire.
