The madness continues
This is the third and final roundup post for 2016. You can see the first one here and the second one here.
Today's post includes posts from September to December.
I've really enjoyed going back and reading all the posts from this year, trying to figure out which ones to include and which to allow to fade into obscurity. I hope you've found it useful as well.
There was one more reader profile: John.
We also ran the Buy to Let in Japan series, kindly written by Ziv, talking about investing in individual properties to rent out:
We had a few posts on pensions:
- How's Your Pension Doing?
- Ghost of Pension Future
- UK State Pensions (this could be really interesting for UK nationals)
There were a number of interesting random posts:
- Travel Hacking to Europe
- Credit Cards in Japan
- Mobile Phones in Japan
- Other People's Money (about a scammy loan offer)
- Spouse Not on Board (when your partner doesn't get it)
- Car Insurance in Japan (a useful trick)
- Telephone Cold Calls (the best way to deal with them?)
- The new iDeCo system (and review of Minako T.'s new book)
- Summoned to the Tax Office (I forgot to declare some income!)
- Peace of Mind (emergency funds and some alternatives)
- Telephone Scams (I fell for one)
- Budgeting (why I don't do it)
- Make Small Money Mistakes (but get the big stuff right)
- Furusato Nozei (there's still time to do it this year)
And finally, there were the end of year roundups:
I'll be running a NISA progress report next week, along with the final Personal Finance for Beginners (in their 50s!) and an annual review post.
Which posts did you enjoy the most?
