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!
Conscious Spending: How My Friend Spends $21,000/year On Going Out That’s pretty much a spending addiction – $400 a week every week for just the idle pleasures of going out on the town can kill one’s finances. (@ i will teach you to be rich)
Finances: Don’t Take Them So Personally A big piece of success with personal finance is to extract your own foibles from it. That’s a difficult thing to do, but for most people, when they master that relationship between emotions and wallet, they’ll succeed greatly. (@ lazy man and money)
Time Is Money! How I Will Stop Wasting Money And Time I absolutely love reading posts where a very valuable fundamental idea like the connection between money and personal productivity clicks for people. (@ money smart life)
The Worst Credit Card I Have Ever Seen A powerful demonstration of how people who get in deep credit situations often find themselves quite desperate – there’s nowhere really to turn, and the options available to you are basically usury. (@ the tao of making money)
The Simple Dollar Retro: Nourishment on a Desperate Income A really fun post about what to do if you have no money and need to eat. This stuff works – I’ve done most of it, long ago.
