The Year of Investing - May 2018

So uh.. I may have bought lots of things. And a fair bit of stuff. And I did some manufactured spending to hit credit card minimum spends. And then I bought some more bits and pieces.

I may have disengaged the frugal auto-pilot for a month. Woops.

How your second job is taxed differently (Hint: It's not)

As we come up to tax time, you should be getting excited for your tax return and getting your paperwork in order. With the proposed changes to the Australian Tax system it can all seem overwhelmingly difficult. I can't cover all the intricacies in one post but I can almost guarantee you that if you work two jobs, you're PAYG tax has been set up to disadvantage you.

The Year of Investing - April 2018

Well that was a weird month. If March was a financial trainwreck, then April tried to one-up it was unpleasant life events. Thankfully by the end of the month it all settled down and I still kicked plenty of goals, but what a roller coaster!

How money in the bank got me a Great performance review

Image result for performance review funny
A couple of weeks ago I got to sit through the joyous quarterly occasion that is a performance review. Of course, we don't call them that because a positive outlook is everything so we call them Inspiration Sessions!! Well, not quite, but it's a similarly pompous name.

I'm not one of the FIRE bloggers who loves their job and says they'd keep working even with money in the bank. I'm one of those FIRE bloggers who checks their numbers every Monday and sighs before opening the job pages and seeing if something else has come up before eventually getting down to work for the day.

But, despite all this, I still got a Great outcome in my performance review thanks to my FIREy pursuits.

The Year of Investing - March 2018

Oof, was it just me or was March one of those months? I spent a lot, the markets went backwards and life just seemed more stressful and busy than it had any right to be. Still, I stayed on track with my goals, and squeezed in a couple of days of doing absolutely nothing - just like retirement could be!

Emotional survival for market crashes

After seeing the share market take a wonderful and scary dive at the start of February, I started thinking about how it felt to me - seeing the value of my investments drop by a couple of thousand - and how it would feel to others with bigger accounts.

While I'm early in my journey and quite happy to see market values drop so I can acquire more for less, I'm trying to imagine how it will feel when I have a bigger investment, and a market correction hits.

Here's a few ideas to manage the panic moments.
