Hey all. I know I haven’t quite stuck to regularly posting roundups as I had hoped to do. I’m hoping that at this point, I can really get back into the swing of things.
As I always say, there is just such a massive amount of content out there and it can be really hard to keep up. Hopefully, you find it useful having me pick out posts I find particularly interesting.
With that said, here are your posts for week six!
I know I have included a post from Accidental FIRE before, but I think this one is pretty interesting so I had to add it!
With more and more talk about income inequality and a dwindling middle class, this is really interesting to see. I’m also a nerd when it comes to interactive maps; something about them it just fascinating to me.
Of course, despite this being a conversation nationally, income inequality also varies due to local factors. That’s why this map is so interesting. Check it out!
This is a timely post for me because I have been thinking about decluttering more and more as of late. In fact, this week’s upcoming post on this blog will talk about decluttering (hint, hint).
I think decluttering is something we could all stand to do a bit more of. Simplifying your life in this way makes things easier and less stressful.
And, well, I honestly had no idea you can sell things via Next Door. I guess it makes sense, but I hadn’t thought about it.
If you want to learn more, see this post from Dragons on FIRE to see what/how much he sold via Next Door.
Every time I’m on a FI Facebook group, it seems inevitable that someone will mention real estate investing. Some seem to think that this type of investment is necessary when working toward financial independence.
While I don’t entirely agree, I can’t deny that real estate investment can help you reach your goals faster.
The thing is, though, real estate investing is not something you want to blindly start doing. It’s important to know the market and do adequate research ahead of time.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s addition of TFF’s Frugal Roundup. There are so many of you writing great content and I wish I could feature you all every week.
Until next week – stay frugal!
