This week you can find me in 4 different carnivals:
- Weakonomics hosted the Carnival of Personal Finance and included HLR’s article on The Savings Account, The Spending Account & The Charity Account.
- Always the Planner hosted the Festival of Frugality and included my article How to Obtain Your Free (Government Mandated) Credit Report.
- EDITORS PICK: I Pick Up Pennies hosted the Money Hacks Carnival and included my article 6 Signs That the Recession is Ending.
- Greener Pastures hosted the Carnival of Pecuniary Delights and included my article What is Dental Insurance & Who Has It?
- I had a guest post @ Moolanomy called Office Etiquette: Making the Right Steps to Fit in. It was aimed towards people new in the workforce, for the most part. What you do in your first 30 days could make or break your career at that company.
- HLR had a guest post @ Bible Money Matters called And On the Seventh Day, He Rested. It ends by telling us all that we should try and take the time to stop and smell the roses. I couldn’t agree with her more.
Other articles I enjoyed:
- Free Money Finance wrote an article about how he keeps his wife informed of the finances. I have heard many times about widows up a creek without a paddle when their husband died. Why? Because he manage the finances. A very responsible thing to do, and I bet it promotes an honest relationship too!
- Lazy Man and Money solicited answers from his readers about frugal gift ideas for Mother’s Day. He mentioned my idea of giving to charity. It’s different, can be frugal, and has no consumerism ties!
- Man Vs Debt mentioned an interesting idea of sleeving your credit cards. I hadn’t heard of it before, so it interested me. I could think of a few sleeves to give to my sister… like “I will pay for my children’s college education.”
- Money Relationship asked if jobs have become disposable. If watching companies get rid of pensions and treat their employees like garbage is any indicator… I have to agree!
- Get Money Energy had a great post about preserving wealth in relation to age. He also built a great image for you to visualize: Imagine a four-tiered fountain. Water comes out at the top, and spills over into each basin below until it gets to the biggest pool at the bottom. Just great.
- No Debt Plan is going without air conditioning this summer! I think it is a great idea… as he said, the human body can get used to a lot more than we think. I live in the North East and don’t use heat or air conditioning. I will use fans and occassionally a space heater to warm a room up real quick.
- The Amateur Financier went over five financial myths to avoid. Very true and hard to believe some people think that ;) I kid, check out the article.
- The Simple Dollar asked if you would take a pa y cut to be happier. He mentions a few people who have, including himself. Do you know what the “magic number” is? Click to see :)
