Money Blue Book Weekend Roundup - 2
Published 2/17/08 (Modified 3/8/11)
Let's take a walk around the the personal finance blogosphere. Here are a few blog posts that I found interesting and worth reading during the last few weeks. Feel free to check them out:
- Frugal For Life shares a tragic story involving love and finance with gold diggers C.C. and Bill.
- Money Smart Life shares a few tips about finding deals during the shopping off season.
- Single Guy Money hands over the arduous task of ironing his shirt and pants to his female friend in a modern day example of bartering. Personally, I think he should stick with buying only wrinkle free clothing like I do.
- Mrs. Micah shares her thoughts on living in the ghetto. I can relate to her ghetto housing experiences as I used to live in Baltimore City a while back as a student. Drug dealers, trauma helicopters, and gang members were common sights.
- Mighty Bargain Hunter talks about the ramifications of when bargain hunting zeal treads into addiction territory. I knew I was personally pushing the envelope a bit when I would order things online to save a measly 50 cents.
- I'm a big fan of using reward credit cards to maximize purchasing power, but The Digerati Life reveals a list of common ways that people can get themselves into credit card trouble.
- Wise Bread is trying to promote their new personal finance forum and is literally giving away $20 Amazon gift certificates each day to those who participate in the new Wise Bread forums. So far I've already won two of them!
- Money Ning has too much money and is giving his wealth away to appease the masses. Either that, or he intends to actually make a profit from his accumulation of wedding gifts.
- Lazy Man and Money is starting a new profile series on celebrities and their money. Oddly, of all the celebrities out there, his first series post will be about Sarah Michelle Gellar.
- Millionaire Mommy Next Door talks about how she chooses to live the good life, rather than the goods life.
- Five Cent Nickel muses about the disappearance of traveler's checks. I didn't even think people used them anymore but I guess at least a few older people still occasionally buy them before they travel. I personally stick with reward credit cards exclusively nowadays.
