This past week had a lot of action going on.
This week you can find me in 4 different carnivals:
- Money NING hosted the Carnival of Personal Finance and included my article on Graduating Without Debt.
- Stretchy Dollar hosted the Festival of Frugality and included my article Glass Door : Know Your Worhth. Props to the Stretch Dollar for putting this together last minute!
- The Consumer Boomer hosted the Money Hacks Carnival and included my article on Good Shopping Habits Make Cents.
- Miss Thrifty hosted the Carnival of Pecuniary Delights and included my article Buying a Dog Saved Me Money.
I had a guest post this week:
I wrote an article for Frugal Dad which a lot of commenters seemed to really enjoy. It was titled The Three Most Influential Lessons My Parents Taught Me.
Other articles I enjoyed:
- The Amateur Financier got ENGAGED! A pretty exciting time for him I am sure :). The next question is… have you created a Wedding account, yet?
- Clever Dude outlined his past jobs, his current job, and his new employer. He goes over benefits and why he chose to switch. Interesting to see how his sort-of ambivalent nature in the proceedings got him a pay raise despite his expectations!
- Gather Little by Little had a post on a money lesson from the 1800s. I loved the article because the father empowers the child to make a decision after showing him the value of a dollar. If you read my guest post you will see why I loved the post.
- Lazy Man and and Money shows some ways to save money going to a baseball game. I love baseball, I used to play in high school. And I love Washington, DC and public transport :).
- Million Dollar Journey had two posts I enjoyed. One was on whether or not organic food is worth the cost. Some of the items he notes are around a 70% price increase. The other article was on the 80/20 rule. That means 80% of ___ comes from 20% of ____. Example: 80% of your productivity comes from 20% of your time.
- Stretchy Dollar went over the 3 C’s of Financial Happiness. Don’t compare, complain, or compete.
- Weakonomics rehashed an age old dilemma… joint or separate accounts after marriage?
- Man vs Debt, who Weakonomics linked to on the joint vs separate accounts issue, also posted another article I could really realte to. He is at war. With his dreamhouse. Blasted House Fever! But what a beautiful house… really.
- Moolanomy did a little research and didn’t get scammed by this chimney sweep! It is always important to research and offers you receive.
Look forward to another week of posts!
I will be getting all 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled on Monday and on Tuesday I will be hosting the Festival of Frugality. Stop by and take a look at an even more extensive list of posts!
