Welcome to my latest Weekend Reading edition – some of my favourite articles from the personal finance and investing blogosphere this week.
Earlier this week I asked the audience if I should sell my old car (I will have a follow-up post with my decision in a few weeks) and I started yet another giveaway on my site after reading Market Masters.
Congratulations to David who won the #MisforMoney giveaway and toolkit for his kids. I will be sending that giveaway set in the mail to you soon David.
Stay tuned for even more giveaways in the coming weeks and an update on my dividend income journey from last month.
