Best Personal Finance Writing – Week 11

It’s been a beautiful week for weather in the Midwest (minus some rain last night). Although I enjoy spring, I get a bit worried when we skip an entire season.

That just means the bugs are going to be even worse.

As promised, I wanted to update you on my doctor visit this Monday. I’ll be turning 31 soon so I wanted to get this out of the way. Everything checked out great and he said I was leading a healthy lifestyle.

I told him about my abstention from grain. I’m not sure if he would have even asked about my diet had I not said anything. I saw a documentary last night that claimed only 6% of doctors receive any training in nutrition. He had no concerns about my diet choices, which is encouraging.


Married (with Debt) will soon be hosting its first giveaway – and it’s cash money!

(Actually it will probably be a cash card, but it spends the same). It is my hope that this will help a reader find extra money to send toward their debts.

So how much am I giving away? That depends on you, the readers.

The more people who subscribe, the bigger the cash prize.

The contest is for subscribers only. The opportunity to win will be sent via email, but I promise this won’t be like those other contests where you get asked to perform a variety of tasks for entries. You will just have to leave a comment on a specific post and I’ll randomly choose the winner.

I’ll have a post soon with more details.

So what are you waiting for? Subscribe now! 



I was featured in the following Carnivals this past week or so. Make sure to visit these sites for some amazing personal finance roundups!

  1. I was surprised by all the attacks on Retire by 40’s retirement dream. It’s sad that people can’t focus on how exciting it is to see someone set out an aggressive goal and strive publicly to achieve it.

    Thanks for recommending the podcast! We have fun making it. Maybe too much fun.

  2. Since I studied medical massage, I actually had a doctor once tell me that I probably knew more about the specific muscles involved in my injury and he’d defer to my information. It was not heartening. If you do have any concerns about your diet, you can always go to a nutritionist, but you’re not doing anything extreme, you’re just paying attention to the signs your body was giving you. Not many people are that observant. Happy to see you’re doing well!

    • Thanks – yeah that would probably be weird to have a doctor defer to the patient. So far everything feels fine with the diet so I’m going to forge ahead!
