The Simple Dollar Morning Roundup: Wise Bread Edition

This week on the morning roundups (while I’m busily moving), I’m highlighting five of the best posts from five personal finance blogs that I faithfully follow. Today’s site is Wise Bread.

Baby Carrots – The Frugal Idea That Isn’t
This is one of the best articles I’ve ever read – it really opened my eyes to the realities of baby carrots, especially since we eat so many carrots – baby and otherwise – at home because they’re my son’s favorite food.

Can You Afford To Follow Your Dreams? Can You Afford NOT To?
I expected this article to be full of pretty things about having priorities and how money can’t be everything. I was pleasantly surprised.

20 Signs That A Pink Slip Is Coming
This article is amusing, but at the same time carries a lot of serious, valuable points.

Like DIY? Avoid These Ten Costly Mistakes
A very appropriate article as I’m moving into a new house – I was prone to at least three of these.

Carnival of Scams – Top 4 Fairground Cons
This article was very funny, brought back some borderline disconcerting childhood memories, and was fairly educational to boot.

  1. Interesting book link on the Wise Bread site. “Who Moved My Cheese” is a great book and can work wonders for both your personal and professional lives.

  2. Yeah… the “20 Signs That A Pink Slip Is Coming” was about two weeks too late for me, as my bosses did about 12 of the things on that list prior to letting me go. Luckily, I’d been working on your “31 Days to Fix Your Finances,” reading some other sites, and thanks to other people’s good ideas, I’ve been able to make $50 of food last for 5 weeks. I went to the grocery store again today, and expect to be able to do the same.

    That said, unemployment won’t be such a shock to my wallet.
