Intersection of Money and Life

Much like the A Richer Understanding series here on RetirementSavvy, where we take a look at the non-technical side of money, Maurer believes most of our financial goals aren’t only financial goals, however life goals with financial implications. With an understanding; of ourselves, of our history with money and what we value the book then focuses on providing the framework for a richer understanding, alongside of reducing the stress associated with reaching those intersections of money and life.

Tim Maurer A Philosophy Of Enough

“The real point of investing is not actually to make money but to have a better life and facilitate Enough.”

The quote above is pulled from the chapter on investing. There have been great discussions on RetirementSavvy concerning minimalism, living a simple life and the definition of wealth. In the same spirit as the sites tagline “living better through planning,” the philosophy of Simple Money becomes finding contentment by redefining wealth (for yourself) and the how and why this focus will improve your life.

Personal Finance is Actually More Personal Than it is Finance

We are all absolutely unique and what works well for someone may not work well for someone else. Tim Maurer has written an understandable and practical book with a personal approach to financial concepts.
