Weekly Mashup, April 19th

This past week had a lot of action going on.

This week you can find me in 4 different carnivals:

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!

    Heh, thanks my friend. Glad to get the feature, to say nothing about the fun of being engaged. To answer your question, no, I don’t have a Wedding Account yet; first, I need to fly out to California on the ‘meet her extended family’ account and introduce myself.
