The Sunday Best (4/17/2016)

The Sunday Best is a collection of a handful of posts I share with you, the reader, each week. With so many informative and inspirational writers out there, I have no trouble coming up with 5 worthwhile reads each week.


Most posts will be from recent weeks, written by physicians, and related to personal finance, but expect to find a post or two lacking at least some of these elements.


Presenting, in no particular order, this week’s Sunday Best:


Peter Ubel, MD, discusses ways to cut down on unnecessary testing in Reducing health costs: Patients aren’t going to take the lead @KevinMD. I like that there is a “choosing wisely” campaign and Top 5 lists as part of these efforts.


Matt Becker of Mom and Dad Money writes a detailed guest post @ jlcollinsnh on saving for college costs, discussing reasons why or why not, and the various methods in which it can be done in Stocks — Part XXIX: How to save money for college. Or not. The first XXVIII posts in the Stocks series are excellent reading as well.


SmartMoneyMD asks How Much Net Worth Should Doctors Have? He shows how an intensivist could be a millionaire by age 40. The assumptions of $30,000 to $60,000 in annual spending are quite low to achieve this but could be doable for a single doc in a low cost of living area.


In an oldie but goodie, Steve @ ThinkSaveRetire shares his views and other blogger’s perspectives on what Financial Independence means to them in What does Financial Independence mean to you?


As if we didn’t already have enough Top 37 lists out there 😉 Dr. J @ medschoolfinancial gives us yet another insightful one in 37 Things That Separate Financially Secure Individuals From The Pack.
