Today was going to be my fall outdoor clean up day and I was going to clean the garage, put away the patio furniture, clean up the flower beds, etc. But it’s been rainy all day here, so I focused a bit on organizing my finances.
I had a stack of financial documents I needed to sort through. Some I wanted to keep and file away, and others I just needed to read and discard.
By the way, in case you’re wondering, here’s a list of important financial records you should keep.
I also ran to our credit union this morning to make a deposit and withdrawal, and noticed that they were holding another free document shred day.
I think this is such a great idea to help people get rid of financial documents and reduce the risk of identity theft! I wish I would have remembered they were doing this, so I could have brought stuff in instead of just putting it in the trash.
Christian Personal Finance Blog Roundup
Later in the day, I caught up on reading some of my favorite Christian personal finance blogs. Here are a few of the posts that caught my attention:
- Free Money Finance explains how much you should save for retirement if you’re starting late.
- Bible Money Matters shares tips on how and where to save for kids’ college education costs.
- Christian PF explains how the fair tax would work, and readers chimed in on a lively debate!
- Faith and Finance offers ten top paying jobs that don’t require a college education.
- The Christian Dollar asks how much is coffee really costing you?
What are you up to this weekend? I hope it’s a good one for you!
