Weekly Mashup: 4th of July

I love the 4th of July. What’s there not to love? You got summertime, fireworks, barbecues, friends and family, etc. This weekend should be fun, with all of that in mind! :)


Guest Post & “Radio” Appearance

Other Articles

  • AG @ Let’s Be Curious discusses the switch from on campus to the working world. AG goes over the story of a college student who transitions into the working world. What happens to their spending? What happens to their financial situation? This is a story we are all too familiar with!
  • Save Money by Avoiding Advertising @ Financial Methods. This post couldn’t be more true. Sometimes the best way to save money is to just ignore all the blatant sales material in your face! I have previously written about my distaste for street graffiti.
  • Adam@ManVsDebt offered his negotiation tips for beginners. This is a semi-long read so get ready to learn a lot! The negotiation tips are all solid. Make sure to read through the comments, too, to get a few more suggestions!
  • Protecting your identity @ Suburban Dollar. Kyle is a “Certified Information Systems Security Professional” so this post deals with a lot of the technical aspects of protecting your identity (shredding, password management, wifi, etc). I have written about identity theft before, so I thought this was a good addition to my sentiment!
  • Weakonomics wrote an interesting post that went over Keynes theory on saving and consumption. I don’t necessarily agree with some of the statements, but nonetheless it brings up questions everyone should be asking when they read economic theory!
  • A discussion on Chase’s decision to raise minimum payments to 5% ensued on Moolanomy’s blog. The post went into a lot of the reasons why this is good for consumers. However, the comments gave the other side of the story and showed a few cases where consumers are really getting shafted.
  • Happy 1 year to Bible Money Matters. Go check out his 1-year anniversary post and read some of his favorite posts over the past year.

    @ Matt –
    No problem, thanks for writing an enjoyable post :)

    @ AG –
    Mashing you in? Let’s not give people the wrong idea ;)

    @ The Weakonomist –
    No problem, we both share an interest… or dare I say passion… for economics!

    @ Money Energy –
    It sure was, I don’t know how he finds the time to write such lengthy posts!

    And I thought he had, but then I saw that post and was like “Guess I’m wrong!” HOWEVER, Happy 1 year to you :)

    @ Four Pillars –
    Thanks Mike. I was nervous/confused at the internet to phone delay. So I thought the first 20 seconds sounds awkward, lol. Oh well!

    Thank you all for stopping by! :)
