The Simple Dollar Morning Roundup: Little Announcement Edition

This week is going to be a little slow around here, because I’m taking a breather to put together a new endeavor: a formal book proposal. An editor from a large publishing house has asked me to assemble a book proposal of sorts using the 31 Days to Fix Your Finances series as a starting point. Thus, in order to give the proposal a fair shake, posting will be light this week so I can focus on that. “Light” means still multiple posts per day, just fewer than the six you may be accustomed to. I will be back to normal posting next week, and I’ll be sure to let you know of any forward progress on the proposal.

Also, if you are a book publisher and would like to see the proposal when it’s ready to go, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

This week, I’m also planning on focusing on some great articles and resources I’ve found in the past on other sites that may be of interest to you.

Speeding: A Quick Way To Get More Than You Bargained For Excellent, in depth analysis on the actual cost of speeding. This is a really interesting article that made me start using my cruise control more. (@ money, matter, and more musings)

Bankrate.com’s calculators This site is a collection of incredibly useful and flexible financial calculators that one can use to calculate everything from whether it not it makes sense to rent to how your mortgage amortization changes if you make extra payments and a comparison of buying and leasing. Incredibly useful stuff. (@ bankrate)

Cutting the Cable TV A brilliant solution for eliminating your cable bill without giving up your favorite cable programs. (@ lazy man and money)

    Congratulations, Trent! I know it will be a success.

  4. Congratulations! I’ve been enjoying the Five Minute Finances – that could make a good little book – or a daily calendar.

    Whatever you churn out will be great.
