The Simple Dollar Morning Roundup: Baby Week Tuesday Edition

With the very recent birth of my daughter, I won’t be around too much this week, so I prepared some morning roundups in advance that list some of my personal favorite articles from various other personal finance sites. Each day, I’ll feature four of them. Enjoy!
