Check out what we have for you this week.

The Real Cost of What We Buy. [Becoming Minimalist] — “If you want to become more intentional with your spending, here’s a truth that is helpful to keep in mind: Whenever we buy something, we’re deciding that it’s worth more than anything else we could have used that money for. You see, we only get to spend our money once.” (Submitted by J. Money.)

Make A Choice And Then Let Go. [Dinks on a Bus] — “When I was considering leaving my last job, I agonized over the decision. First, I told myself I’d only leave if the right job came along. And although it took me a little while, I did end up finding another job I’d consider leaving for. But even then, once I found it, I felt paralyzed. I worried I’d make a mistake by leaving. In my typical fashion, I made a pros and cons list. Even though I felt really good about the pros and cons list, that I’d thought of everything, it still didn’t seem to help me actually make a decision. So, I agonized some more.” (Submitted by Tarsha.)

What Netflix’s Beef Taught Me About Financial Independence. [Millennial Revolution] — “Have you ever been so angry you wanted to burn someone’s house down? If so, you’ll relate to the Netflix series “Beef”… I thought this was going to be mindless entertainment like the Tiger King feud between Carole Baskin and Joe Exotic, but it ended up being a deep, social commentary about life and unexpectedly made me think of how it relates to FIRE.” (Submitted by J.
