The same applies to soft commodities, which, especially in times of economic uncertainty, seem to be rapidly gaining popularity among investors worldwide. Some even go as far as claiming that soft commodities are just as safe of an investment as reserved money in the bank while promising better returns.
But what percentage of your portfolio should you allocate to commodities?
In this book, Carey Harris explains why soft commodities are at the bottom of the trade pyramid and how you can take advantage and build a solid investment strategy with what he calls “Poor Man’s Commodities” – even if you don’t have a large budget for investing in the stock market.
Poor Man’s Commodities is a straight forward beginner’s guide to hard and soft commodities, which explains the fundamentals to commodity trading without overwhelming you with information.

Is your house overflowing with stuff that you don’t use or need? Clutter can:
• Overwhelm the senses
• Consume space
• Drain energy from our surroundings
• Cause stress and anxiety
This book will show you how to lighten up so you can walk into your home and be surrounded only by the things you love. Living in a minimalistic way means clearing the clutter from your life to focus on what’s truly important. Chances are, 75% of the things in your home are no benefit to your life at all. You’ll also find that throwing out a few garbage bags feels even better than therapy.
Why do you hold onto things? Here are just some of the reasons:
• Security—but the paradox is that the more we cling, the more frustrated and overwhelmed we feel.
• Addiction—shopping is a high and the novelty wears off.
• Approval—keeping material representations of who we are is one way we show off.
• Identity—we identify with what we own so that’s why we’re upset when something is stolen or broken.
• Obligation to others—we please others by keeping gifts and inherited things we don’t really like or need.
By letting go of possessions that no longer serves us, we can
• Let go of old beliefs
• Open ourselves up to new opportunities and relationships
• See your home, your life for what they really are
• Need less and do more
• Cultivate meaningful relationships
• Be more in tune with yourself in a meditative space
• Stop shopping as a form of therapy
• Stop wasting money
• Restore clarity
• FIND WHAT YOU REALLY VALUE
When you have inner clutter, it expands to your environment. So when you live in a clean and soothing environment, it can only benefit your inner life.
Don’t let the word minimalism scare you. Minimalistic living is not about getting rid of modern advancements and living in the stone age. It’s only about keeping things that are useful, meaningful and add value to your life. While it does not place importance on material things and lavish living, minimalism is also not about denying yourself of the things you need.
The guide is divided by different rooms and topics to make it easy and practical to refer to.
• Living Room
• Children’s Rooms
• Teen Rooms
• Computer & Technology
• Sentimental Objects
• Cards & Letters
This book also helps you
• Recognize Clutter
• Declutter, clean & organize your home room by room
• Sell your things for profit
• Shop for a minimalist wardrobe
• Get your family on board
• Declutter digital content and computer files
• Go car-free or car-lite
• Surround yourself with people who add value to your life
• Maintain your space once you’ve minimalized
Living with less is the first step to a peaceful mind. It makes space for the new to come in. Buy the book, put it into practice and welcome positive change into your life now.

On buying ramen noodles: I am sooooooo embarassed. I only have 33 cents. I (please don’t laugh) put the money on the counter and quickly attempt to dash out with my Chicken Flavored Salt Noodles. The guy calls me back! I look up instinctively, I should have run . . . Why didn’t I run???!! He tells me the noodles are 35 cents. I try to apologize sincerely. I thought the sign said 33 cents yesterday, so that’s all I brought with me. Could he wait while I ran home and get the 2 cents? I show him my student I.D. to let him know I am not a thief. He shakes his head and motions either for me to get the hell out of his store and never come back again or get the money as do come back. I don’t know. He said something like “Nyeh” and swiped his hand in my direction.
I can’t translate hand motions well.

Previous generations have had some help in achieving financial security that young people can't count on today: generous employer pensions, steady housing price increases, and a well-funded Social Security program, to name a few. In short, the old "muddle through" approach won't cut it anymore - not even close. A steady income is still a must, but parlaying this into long-term financial security is now an entirely different proposition than ever before. The institutions of the past can no longer be relied upon to handle the process; each person now needs to manage the long-term financial planning and decision making on their own.
Fortunately, though, anyone just starting out can still achieve a very strong financial future from almost any income level - but only by doing the right things to make it happen. Those things aren't particularly hard to understand or to do, but it is important to do them right, to do them consistently, and to do them in the right order. Most importantly, if you get an early start, the risks are minimal and the payoff is substantial. But each year that passes, the risks go up and the payoff goes down. If you have just started out in your financial life, or if you are just about to, and you want a complete and practical education in the fundamentals of personal finance for a secure future, then this book is for you. Chris Smith guides readers through the basics of saving, investing, and financial planning in language that is clear, accessible, and lively, making difficult concepts understandable to the novice, and enjoyable to those who already have some understanding. He shows readers how to apply this knowledge, and to avoid the most common pitfalls, to insure the best possible outcome for long-term financial security.

As he shares his family’s cost-cutting adventures, O’Connor offers helpful strategies for getting your own finances back on track.

Some people wonder why, some Fengshui cures work for some, but not for others. If we were to pinpoint the culprit for non-working cures, misconceptions of Fengshui are the main culprits that are behind the non-working cures.
In the era of information technology, many Fengshui enthusiasts turn to the internet for information regarding Fengshui. With so much information about Fengshui being easily available, practically anyone can claim to have some knowledge about Fengshui. And even though one may not be a Fengshui practitioner – it is not uncommon for someone with some knowledge about Fengshui go on to “give advice” to others about Fengshui, creating a cycle of “anything goes” when it comes to Fengshui advice.
This book was written with the objective of bringing you into the world of Fengshui, the basics behind this intangible art, the misconceptions about Fengshui and the masters, the cures that we can apply in our own home or office, and what we need to know to understand this art better.
Most importantly, this book compiles simple and basic secrets that many masters are not willing to share.
Put together from the cases the author handled, this book provides you with the perspectives of both Fengshui masters and Fengshui clients. This book also explains why some cures don’t work, and why some cures do. This book will be sharing with you the case studies and examples to illustrate the points without too many technical details that may confuse you. This book will be able to allow you to look at Fengshui from a different point of view.
No matter if you are a believer, a sceptic, or a neutral, this book aims to serve as a reading pleasure that makes Fengshui less of a debatable subject.
