Interesting Stuff I Learned/Found This Week: November 11

I read a lot online.  Like a lot a lot… I’m always browsing all the other early retirement and FI blogs and reading new books every month.  I also read many non finance blogs and wikipedia articles.

Anyhow, I’m going to try to post once a week, the best things I found/learned. 

  1. A Complaint Free World: We borrowed the book A Complaint Free World at the library and D and I both read it in the last 2 weeks. It’s a very simple concept but I am very interested in trying the idea.  I think we all do a little bit too much complaining.  So starting today, D and I are starting the 21 day “complaint free challenge”.  I’ll keep you posted on how it goes.
  2. Religion for the Nonreligious: I’ve been sort of obsessed with the Wait but Why blog. I binge read about 30 articles in the last few weeks.  I highly recommend the article Religion for the Nonreligious. It is very well written and surprisingly actually made me more spiritual than less spiritual.
  3. Since going to Camp Mustache, I’ve been reading so much on travel hacking.  One website that I really like and check out everyday now just for fun is If you go under the “Canada” tab, you will see some crazy flights deals that they have found in the last week. These tend to be at specific times of the year through a specific airline but for flexible travellers, you can find amazing deals. Example: Toronto to UK or Paris for $199 (taxes inc.) each way.  Or Ottawa to San Diego roundtrip for $280 (taxes inc.). Or Montreal to Hawaii roundtrip for $412 (taxes inc.).
  4. MMM: MMM had a new article this week. Interestingly it was about insurance and if it was really worth the high costs. Coincidentally, I posted an article about cancelling our life insurance this week too (I wrote it last month).  Double coincidentally, his last article was about the cost of driving and having a car and I posted a similar article a few days before.  Am I MMM?

  1. Thanks for the tips! The secretflying website looks awesome! I am motivated to just pick the cheapest flight on there to get to Europe and then use Ryanair to fly within Europe for cheap to wherever I want to go!

    This is definitely a travel hack that I will use in the future! I’m excited to read about other travel hacks that you will find.
