I love low cost index funds

I can’t imagine a world without low cost index funds. Vanguard has been around for as long as I’ve been an investor and has likely saved me thousands of dollars in fees and tens of thousands of dollars in lost gains.

Today, low cost index funds are everywhere!

So, it’s no surprise that index funds are considered one of the biggest disrupters in the retirement savings game, which is the subject of our first post today:

And before you go, for those who love bullet journals (or any journals), here’s a fun post chock full of ideas on how you can use them to better your money:
