Top 10 Personal Finance Articles of the Month — March 2022

It’s time again for one of my favorite features here on Dyer News: a look at the top 10 personal finance articles of the month. To kick things off this month, we’ll feature articles about taking different perspectives or that come from an interesting angle themselves. Then we’ll look at a pair of articles about living with less. Finally, we’ll wrap things up with posts on the gamification of investing, the path to becoming wealthy, and more.

As usual, this month’s list includes a couple of Dyer News Top 10 mainstays as well as a few first-timers. Without further ado, below is my list of the top 10 personal finance articles published in March of 2022, along with their title, author, and the site they originally appeared on.

A Different Perspective

Flip the Script — Nick, Your Money Blueprint

The way that many individuals think about spending and saving is quite interesting. Unfortunately, it can also tend to be a bit backward. Thus, as Nick points out, there can be benefits to “flipping the script” by considering the total cost of purchases and breaking down distant savings goals into smaller payments instead of the other way around.

What If Financial Advice for Men Was More Like Financial Advice for Women? — Melanie Allen, Partners in Fire

All too often, financial advice directed toward women can be tainted with sexism. What’s more, these condescending articles may be filled with non-useful tips that only add insult to injury. That’s why, in observance of Women’s History Month in March, Melanie turns things around and offers some male-focused advice in the same vein.

Why I Don’t Care About Our Home’s Market Value (Nor Should You) — Jim Wang, Best Wallet Hacks

With house prices on the rise, there’s been a lot of talk about home value. Indeed, seeing that you could potentially sell your home for far more than it’s worth can be an exciting prospect (while seeing that you’re underwater can be demoralizing). Yet, Jim says he doesn’t care about his home’s market value and explains why others shouldn’t either.

The Responsibility of HopeEmily Guy Birken

For many real reasons, the last few years have been filled with pessimism and a sense of dread. At the same time, the idea behind the “YOLO” manta has continued to resonate, leading some to focus on today with little regard for tomorrow. In turn, as Emily writes, the concept of hope now also comes with responsibility.

Living with Less

Being Easily Pleased is a Superpower Kristen, The Frugal Girl

How many times have you thought to yourself, “If I only had [X], then I’d be happy?” If you’re like most people, then the answer is likely “pretty often.” However, the truth is that there can be joy found in everyday things we may not even realize. On that note, Kristen highlights what she calls her superpower: being easily pleased.

7 Lies That Lead to a Cluttered Home — Joshua Becker, Becoming Minimalist

As popular television shows, books, and specials have pointed out, a cluttered home can be hectic. Nevertheless, while many of us may strive to declutter, there are certain beliefs that hold us back in this regard. In fact, Joshua notes seven such lies that can limit you in your pursuit of minimalism.

Personal Finance Tips

Robinhood and the Gamification of Investing — Nick Gallo, Finmasters

For as popular as the stock trading app Robinhood has been in recent years, it’s also been equally controversial. In fact, the platform has been cited as part of the impetus for the “meme stock” craze that exploded during the pandemic. Of course, there’s more to it than that, which is why Nick takes a closer look at the gamification of investing in general.

It Doesn’t Take Special Financial Knowledge to Become Wealthy — Dr. Cory S. Fawcett, Financial Success M.D.

Considering that so many people want to be wealthy and so few actually are, there must be some secret that can make it all come together. Alas, while we may want to assume that, it’s not exactly the case. Instead, Dr. Cory S. Fawcett suggests getting back to basics is the best way to build wealth over time.

Make It Hard to Lose — Jesse Cramer, The Best Interest

Everyone wants to win. And while that’s not always possible, there’s always the next best thing: not losing. Confused? This post from Jess explains how removing bad habits from our lives can help us to “not lose” more often.

How I Create My Video Reviews for YouTube — Kyle Burbank, Money@30

When most people think of YouTube, they might think about late night comedy clips, questionable stunts, or “day in the life” content from influencers. However, with YouTube being a search engine, there’s also a place on the platform for reviews that consumers can use to make decisions about what to buy, what tools to try, and more. With that in mind — and in celebration of his channel topping 10,000 subscribers — Kyle takes a look at how he creates his video reviews for YouTube.
