I thought I’d give you a heads up on some things I’ve got planned for plonkee money.
First up, I’m joining in the m-network‘s series on Dave Ramsey‘s Baby Steps to Financial Freedom. Of course, Dave Ramsey is basically unheard of in the UK, so if you want to get an idea of what it’s all about, check out this Dave Ramsey overview from Patrick @ Cash Money Life. When you’ve done that, the rest of the series is as follows:
- Step 0: No More Debt! No More Debt – Debt-Free Revolution, No More Debt – Single Guy Money.
- Step 1: $1,000 to start an Emergency Fund – Gather Little by Little.
- Step 2: Pay off all debt using the Debt Snowball – I’ve Paid For This Twice Already.
- Step 3: 3 to 6 months of expenses in savings – Being Frugal.
- Step 4: Invest 15% of household income into Roth IRAs and pre-tax retirement – The Dough Roller.
- Step 5: College funding for children – My Two Dollars.
- Step 6: Pay off home early – Moolanomy.
- Step 7: Build wealth and give! – Plonkee Money.
- Wrap-Up: Being Frugal, I’ve Paid For This Twice Already.
Another thing that’s in the works is a guide to ISA investing. I know a couple of you have requested one, and it’s currently about half finished – it’ll probably be a two or three part series. If there’s something you particularly want addressed in that, be sure to let me know.
I’m going to carry on with my book reviews, taking a look at Rich Dad, Poor Dad (assuming that I can find my copy). If there’s a book you’d like me to review, again let me know.
Finally, I’m thinking about writing a series or something on one of my favourite topics, budget travel. I prefer to actually do budget travel, but failing that, I’ll write about it so that you can do it.
As always, feel free to contact me with questions, suggestions, criticisms or ideas.
