The Simple Dollar Weekly Roundup: Two Reader Mailbags Per Week (?) Edition

In a few weeks, the book club reading of The Intelligent Investor, which I post each Friday morning, will be finished. Some of you will celebrate this, others will lament it (I’ve received a lot of comments on both sides of the coin).

Regardless, I am aware that the Reader Mailbag is perhaps the most popular feature on the site. I receive more correspondence about the mailbag than pretty much anything else I post.

So, what I’m considering is replacing the book club entry on Friday mornings with a second Reader Mailbag each week. What do you guys think?

How to Build Confidence and Destroy Fear Confidence is a key part of personal finance success. Without confidence, it becomes much, much harder to stand up and make real changes in your life and in your investments. After all, it’s much easier to just go along with the flow – and that often means spending more than you should. (@ get rich slowly)

7 Great Ways To Track Your Progress Towards Your Goals I’ve been fanatic about journaling since I was pretty young and that’s how I track things like this. In fact, I have considered posting the entire journal online before under a sheen of anonymity – I have daily entries (most of them over 1,000 words) dating back to 1991. (@ dumb little man)

The Paradox of “The Paradox of Thrift” My argument here is that different financial choices merely help different industries. If you spend it, you help retail businesses and consumer product manufacturers. If you save it, you help the banking industry. In the end, I don’t worry about the economy when I make financial choices. (@ consumerism commentary)

Frugal Camping: My Roots in Frugality Reading this, I was reminded of the week long camping trips we used to take when I was a kid. We’d settle in for the long haul and do all kinds of interesting things. (@ frugal dad)

Emotional Bank Accounts This is certainly an interesting way of thinking about relationships with other people. (@ gather little by little)
