First time investor advice books / blogs? Saw the mention of BiggerPockets below. What else is recommended? Trying to get smart on the trade offs / pros cons of different investment approaches (buying lower cost rental properties vs buying your own primary residence and holding vs being a partial investor in development projects etc). Thanks!!

I’ve been thinking about getting into real estate investing. Not right now but later down the road. I’ve been trying to save up for a down payment. What are some good resources for a beginner?

To con't the conversation on engagement rings💍 - what do they symbolize to you? My BF and I got into a discussion about this last night. He views them as an investment and an "asset" on the books for his future family. He also has grandparents who had to finance their trip to America by selling their jewels. I see the ring as more of a gift to the future bride that is an expense that can be sold for money if needed, but isn't an investment. I'm fine w/ lab grown, he is not. Thoughts?

I found out today that my mid-70s mother converted the $40K or so she got when she and my dad divorced in the 90s to a net worth of almost $1M today. She got a little bit of money when my grandparents died, but she essentially did it on her own with some savvy investments and living very frugally (she was a SAHM and never had a paying job). My dad was TERRIBLE with money, so I’m especially proud of her for figuring out how to come out ahead. I told her she needs to write a book. Go Mom!
