Happiest of holidays and New years to everyone! Apologies for the delay with this toast. I literally got back to town last night from holiday family time. Hope you all are having a great holiday season!
The Weekend Toast series is a collection of recently published articles by other bloggers that I put together to share. Consider this your one stop shop for remaining up-to-date on being a badass.
So, grab your drink of choice, put your feet up and get ready to read!
This week: women and retirement; financial resolutions from finance bloggers themselves; sticking to your resolutions; holiday waste; plant based diets; travel advantages of precheck/global entry.
Cheers! Here’s to a wonderful 2019!
Not to put a damper on my female readers right before the new year, but this post by Think Save Retire talks about why women are more likely to run out of money in retirement. UGH. However, there are ways to offset those factors that put us at risk. See his post for more information! Why Women are More Likely to Run out of Retirement Money
Wealthy Nickel shares a post about what 30 or so financial bloggers/experts want to accomplish in 2019. Some of it may be beyond your financial scope (some is definitely not for me), but can hopefully give you some ideas of what to aspire to! Money Goals – 30+ Experts Share Their 2019 Resolutions
I love this post by Accidental Fire. It made me laugh out loud more than once. I’m pretty sure he verbatim wrote out some of the things I think in regards to how much we waste here in the US. Hopefully you all are making good use of your holiday leftovers, maybe keep those gift bags for next year, and, even better, lets use this post as inspiration to continue reducing our waste in the coming year! How to Not Get Wasted this Holiday.
For those New Years diet resolutions I know that you all have, Stiletto MD has a basic starter pack on plant based diets. There’s some resources to get you educated on what it’s all about, plus a go – to list to get some recipes you can try out! Check it out: My Favorite Plant-based Resources.
On the same note, see my recent post on following through with resolutions; or for those of you who are resolution-averse, throw that list out the window and read about the alternative I suggest 🙂 Your new resolution: stick to your resolutions.
For those awaiting their 2019 travels (and I hope you have some lined up), you may want to look into global entry and/or Tsa precheck (if you don’t have it already). I find that having it saves me a lot of time and hassles at the airport. Moneyat30 explains it further in Global Entry: What is it and is it worth it for travelers? Check it out and see what you think!
