Happy Tuesday, Penny Hoarders!
Each week we'll be showcasing the latest community news and updates in an announcement post. This is a great way to keep you all up-to-date on the latest happenings.
+ We have a new post page design! Have you had a chance to check it out yet on thepennyhoarder.com yet? A few things we’ve changed: A new left sticky social share bar for desktop, no more right rail on desktop, and a shorter line length on desktop that is optimized for readability. You can look at the change in one of our posts here. Let me know what you think!
+ The race for the next Penny Hoarder Member of the Month is still on! There are just a few days left, so you still have time to be in the running for a $25 gift card of your choosing. How can you win? Continue to lend your helpful advice, share your experiences and ask your questions!
+ Are you a new member or simply haven’t introduced yourself yet to the community? We’re waiting to interact with you! Drop a note about yourself in our welcome thread. There are community members waiting to say hi!
Most talked about threads
+ The most engaging content of the week goes out to @Moore Income who is personally trying to improve in the area of giving. “My mentor has taught me that if you don't give even when finances are tight, you won't be a giver when you are financially free and have a lot of money.” So he asks this question of the community: Do you give any money to charities?
+ Emergency fund complete?
Community member @Rob Loftus shared a while back how he lives off of 50% of his net income after “seeing the light on New Year’s Eve 2017.” Read all about his journey. Flash forward to March -- when Robert said his emergency fund would be complete! We’d all love an update, Robert! Way to go =)
+ Coming out of her shell!
I wanted to take a moment to shout out @collins for being brave and making her first post in the community this week. So happy to have you in the community! You can make her feel extremely welcome to the community by taking a moment to welcome her.
+ Preparing for retirement!
Shoutout both @ekuhlens and @mintjulep this week for sharing their knowledge on retirement planning and different methods. Can’t wait to hear even more about your experiences - feel free to share them by starting another thread!
+ Looking to work from home?
On our website, we have a Work-from-Home jobs portal, where we share the latest work-from-home opportunities with you, including what the job entails, experience needed and hourly pay. Each week, we’ll be sharing a few here, so it’ll be easy for you to stay on top of if you’re searching for additional income or a new job.
Thank you for reading this week’s edition! If you have any other suggestions or feedback, or simply would like to reach out to the community team, you can email me at [email protected] or DM me!
Until next week!
