Whether you’re striving for an early or traditional retirement, we all know how important saving for that milestone is.

With that in mind, Nick highlights the benefits of a Flexible Spending Strategy for those who either want to spend more in retirement or save less ahead of time.

The Key To Making Good Financial Decisions: Connecting With Your ‘Future Self’ — Tim Maurer, Forbes

One of the main reasons why younger adults don’t often save for retirement (even though they’d benefit greatly from it) is because the goal seems so far away. Of course, this phenomenon doesn’t disappear so easily as it can still take some people a while to realize that they need to begin preparing. However, Tim has found a way to help you make better financial decisions today and set you up for tomorrow: consider your “future self.”

Continuing our talk of aging, did you know that studies suggest 50% of those born after 2000 will live to be at least 100 years old?

This article from Moneyvators offers a few suggestions on that front.

How to Stop Being Your Own Worst Enemy (in Investing) — Jon, Novel Investor

Even though we all strive to be rational, intelligent investors, human nature means we’re susceptible to emotions and the reactions that come with them.

Personal Finance Tips

How Much Money Does it Take to Feel Wealthy? — Ben Carlson, A Wealth of Common Sense

Yes, You Should Pay Off That 3% Home Mortgage — Dr. Cory S. Fawcett, Financial Sucess M.D.

When it comes to debt, it’s common to hear that there are two types: good debt and bad debt. As part of this, “good debt” is usually defined as low interest. In turn, some suggest that it may be better to keep the low interest debt on the books while using funds in other ways (such as investing). While that can make sense, Dr. Cory explains why you actually should consider paying off your 3% interest mortgage if you have the opportunity to.

The hit Netflix series Beef may not have much to do with personal finance. Nevertheless, like many pieces of media, the show can be viewed with a money lens. That’s exactly what this Millennial Revolution post does — but watch out for spoilers!

What I Learned From Making YouTube Shorts for 30 Days in a Row — Kyle Burbank, Money@30

Finally, as you may have heard, YouTube has been emphasizing its Shorts offering as it looks to compete with TikTok and Instagram Reels. As part of these efforts, the site has changed how these under-one-minute-long videos are monetized in a bid to encourage creators to experiment with this medium. So, Kyle participated in a 30-day challenge to create a new Short every day and shared what he learned from the experience.
