Picky Flamingo – Weekend Reads (21/07/2018)
Welcome to the latest edition of Picky Flamingo – Money Flamingo’s Weekly Roundup.
Picky Flamingo is a collection of the best financial independence and personal finance articles I’ve come across during the past week. Expect most of the articles to be from Australian contributors, but you will also find some great international content. The articles cover the themes we talk about here at Money Flamingo – investing, financial independence, early retirement, personal finance, frugality, lifestyle, and happiness. Picky Flamingo is published every Saturday morning. If you would like my weekly picks to be delivered to your inbox, make sure to sign up for the newsletter!
Presenting… This week’s edition of Picky Flamingo:
- Peter Thornhill on LICs, Dividend Investing and Other FAQ by Strong Money Australia: Dave’s interview with Peter Thornhill is a must read for all Australian investors. If you only read one article this week, it should be this one!

This week’s pick: What is the Real Cost of Raising Children?
“Middle and high income people tend to say that taking care of their children is very expensive, but when you dig right down into it, these people are mostly just being suckered into Consumertown by the amazing amount of marketing that tries to sell products to desperate parents. Or even worse, using their children as an excuse to buy things.”
I hope you enjoyed this week’s selection! See you back here next Saturday! 😊
