It’s Time to Uncomplicate Your Health and Wealth. [A Teachable Moment] — “It’s rare to find a situation where simplifying lifestyle or financial choices doesn’t result in a better outcome for end-users… The same goes for investing. Trying harder by creating costly complexities is a poor substitute for bare-boned and easy-to-understand investments.” (Submitted by J. Money.)

Top Tips for How to Teach Your Child Responsibility.  [How Much Is That in Tacos] — “Our kids are our world, we want their lives to be so much better than ours ever was. We send them to private schools so they can be smarter than we were. They’re involved in nonstop extracurricular activities to ensure they have physical abilities and the right amount of socialization for college applications.” (Submitted by Tarsha.)

12 Steps to Financial Independence [Financial Tortoise] – “Alcohol Anonymous is famous for their 12-step program. It’s helped millions, if not tens of millions of people reach sobriety and transform their lives for the better. So in salute to the original 12-step program, in this post we are going to review the 12-steps to achieving financial independence.” (Submitted by Jim Wang.)

Could You Live in $25k A Year, and Be Happy? [Money and Meaning] — “My last 30 years were based on three philosophical, environmental, and financial beliefs: spending more money wouldn’t make me happier, spending more money would degrade the environment, and spending more money meant I would have to work more years.” (Submitted by J. Money.)

A Million Choices [Steve Adcock] – “The best-made plans are over dinner and margaritas, right??? But here’s the magic in what happened that night. As we chatted, I never had to think about if my boss will let me go. Or if I have enough vacation hours left. Or whether I should bring my laptop in case of a work emergency.” (Submitted by Jim Wang.)
