Around the Web: 6 Smart Personal Finance Stories

By Allison Kade Nov 1, 2019

Especially with the holidays on the horizon, lots of us are thinking about our spending patterns (and gearing up for some additional expenses, too). 

That’s why we combed the blogosphere for great personal finance stories for inspiration leading into this time of joy . . . and spending. 

  • How to pay off debt fast, even on a low income. We like this roundup because it acknowledges that not everyone has a large income to dedicate toward debt repayment. That doesn’t change how important it is, so we like that this keeps the focus on making some forward momentum.

  • What comes after paying off debt? It’s a huge achievement when you’ve finished paying down your debts. But when you’re done with that . . . what’s next?

  • 11 ideas for making more money, even if you’re busy. If you’re feeling financially overextended during the holiday season, it’s helpful to make some side cash. The good part about this list is that it’s tailored to people who don’t have tons of time to start extensive companies on their free time.

  • What is your “legacy”? At Fabric, we’re all about planning for the future and thinking about what we pass on to our family members.

  • What’s the deal with dividend investing? As families get together for Thanksgiving and some of us start to think about those close to us and our long-term futures, this is a good time to think about investing for the future.

  • What is a trust fund, exactly? This is one of our own articles, a “greatest hit.” Lots of our readers want to know: How do trust funds work? Who needs them? How much do they cost?

Happy reading!
