This weekend reading thing is fun.  Wouldn’t you like to do your weekend reading at that house above?

That picture really has no significance to this post, but you have to admit, that’s quite the view.

Pretty pictures can be distracting.  Back to the weekend reading thing.

I’ve been reading a lot more articles, knowing that I need to pick the best to share with you guys.

I hope you’re enjoying it as much as I am!  Here’s what I have for you this week:

Be sure to check out the articles we published this week, if you missed them:

Here’s what I found from around the web:

Minimalism (Mark Manson) – This is an older article, but it’s a great look into the journey to minimalism.  Mark also gives you some actionable tips at the end, which is probably my favorite part.  I like action.

Could “Debt Art” Help You Pay Off Your Debt Faster? (How Do I Money?) – How could you not read an article with that title?  Despite the fact that “debt art” is reminiscent of Common Core, it really makes sense.  It’s a visual way to help you pay off your debt faster, and I think it’s a great idea.  It almost makes me wish I was in a lot of debt so I could try it…OK not really, but it does look like it adds some fun to the mix.  (P.S. sorry about the Common Core comment, please don’t start debating that in the comments…or do, I really don’t care, but seriously…don’t).

What Does Life Insurance Really Cover? (SheBudgets) – Since I published an article on life insurance this week, I thought this article was good for a little more information on what types of death life insurance does and doesn’t cover, as well as a few other points.  It’s a quick read, unlike my life insurance article this week.  Sorry about that.  I just had so much to say about dying.  Weird, right?

The 3 Stages of Failure in Life and Work (James Clear) – James goes through these stages in depth and tells you how to fix them (he says that in the parenthesis of his title, but I already use parenthesis for the author’s name, so that got intense quick, and I decided to leave that part of the title off).  It’s also important to note that you should just get started, and fail a few times, while learning from articles like this.  You can’t improve your process if you don’t have a process.

10 Questions Landlords Can’t Ask (WiseBread) – I actually knew most of these, but one or two surprised me.  This is worth quickly reading if you’re a landlord, or if you current [or ever plan to] rent from a landlord.  I think it’s crazy that people can’t ask some of these questions.  I mean the people are living in their house, they should have the right to know a few of these things.  The writer in me also wants to point out that #5 isn’t actually a question, but I get what they’re saying.  OCD?  Perhaps.  Obviously, I’ve never made a writing mistake (read: there are probably several in this article alone).

Next week, I’ll be taking a break from the Understanding Series to publish an article about something that many people who want to get out of debt deal with.  Be sure to check it out on Monday!

If you like to leave comments in random places, do that on this article!  Thanks for reading!  I love you all!
