I’d love to connect you to resources to maintain a more financially independent life. I think personal finance and minimalism have a lot in common and go hand-in-hand. Here, I’ll link you to some of my favorite books, blogs, and other resources to get you started on your journey. Check this page often, because it will grow as this blog does.
Quit Like A Millionaire by Kristy Shen & Bryce Leung
This book was recommended to me by one of my money mentors, and I was able to finish this book within three days of receiving it (okay, there was a weekend involved). It’s an amazing book about how to save, invest, and strategically make your money yours. Kristy and Bryce’s book provides you with the tools necessary to think like a millionaire, even for those of us who make less than $50k per year. Kristy started out in life with very little, and she was able to retire from her career as a 31-year-old millionaire. She writes about her strategies for doing so.
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo
This book changed my entire outlook on stuff, which also changed my outlook on the things I choose to spend my money on. Marie Kondo’s approach involves discarding items that don’t serve a purpose or spark joy. She’ll walk you through the steps of minimizing your clothing, books, papers, miscellaneous items, and sentimental belongings. She doesn’t shame you for the volume of things you own, but rather helps you pair down your items so you can see and use the beautiful things you love.
The Simply Path To Wealth: Your road map to financial independence and a rich, free life by JL Collins
This is my current read, and it’s a fantastic book for those who may not know what to do when it concerns investing. Collins makes investing really simple and accessible to most people–and the tools in this book will allow you to become a DIY investor. It’s a great read!
