“Why I’m grateful for my emergency fund.”

What a wonderful day to read and think about personal finance, wouldn’t you agree? That’s why I’ve taken the time to collect some of the best money stories from across the web. Take a gander!

“Three times I was damn grateful for my emergency fund.” [Bitches Get Riches] — “I am here to testify to the importance of emergency funds and side gigs! Bow your heads and listen as I tell you my tales of being grateful af that I had an emergency fund and an extra stream of income at hand.”

How continual professional development benefits you and your money. [Women Who Money] — “If you’re not sure where to look for professional development opportunities, check your local community college for seminars or workshops. Also, if you’re a member of a professional organization, you might be able to attend conferences throughout the year.”

How to repurpose your old gadgets. [Wired] — “You might be surprised at how many ways you can repurpose an old piece of hardware, even if it’s several years old and has become too slow to fulfill its original function properly anymore. These are some of our favorite ideas, but there are more out there.” [As somebody who has an iPhone 12 Pro in transit, I found this article useful.]

When you have enough, it’s time to help others. [The New York Times] — “While I continue to invest for a retirement that grows ever closer, I am no longer focused on trying to increase my net worth. There is nothing more I want.”

Not much extra commentary from me today. I’m too engrossed in reading the Hannibal Lecter books (for real!). So disturbing, but so good.
