Get Your Reading Glasses On and Enjoy Some Great Links

November 12, 2011 · 67 comments

in Link Round Up

Well, it has certainly been a busy week!  Recovered from a flu shot, got a job offer, and refinanced the house.  So much to do and think about and still have to find a way to get ready for Thanksgiving!

Hope everyone had a great week and can also find some time to read through some great articles from this past week:

101 Centavos has an interesting conversation on an airplane about network marketing and an actual successful product.  Will he join in?

Budgeting in the Fun Stuff recently refinanced and wants to pay the house down quickly.  However, it takes more than a little effort to make sure that extra principal payment is actually applied.

Financial Samurai is struggling with guilt regarding vacation days.  I say, unless you are dropping all the responsibility of a massive project on someone else at the last minute, forget the guilt and GO!

First Gen American and I could be gardening buddies!  She writes a great post about how to save on gardening expenses, and has a lot of great tips.

Invest It Wisely asks a very important question – how can we help the younger generation better understand personal finance?  I believe my high school business education consisted of a class in bookkeeping if you can believe that.  Finance does not have to be a black box of mystery, the basics are actually quite easy to understand, as long as someone teaches you.

KrantCents discusses something I have noticed in the business word as well- people pay attention to when you leave the office, but nobody cares about when you came in.  In other words, you can show up at 6 in the morning, but if you leave at 4, people will stare at you as you walk out the door.

Len Penzo lists 16 compelling reasons to not invest in a whirlpool tub for the master bath. I couldn’t agree more. I would have to be constantly filling it so the water stayed warm, then my water bill would be ridiculous.  Best to just not make the investment in my opinion (for reasons other than the water bill).

Little House in the Valley encourages the use of mortgage calculators when deciding to buy home, and to actually plan ahead and make sure you can afford what you want to buy.  Very good advice I say!

Minting Nickels shares a thought-provoking story that reminds us that NOT getting what you want may actually be for the best.

Money Reasons is blogging while out and about, and finds blogging to be a great ‘mobile’ career.  I totally agree with him, and I find I can get so much done if I write while sitting at Starbucks.

MoneyCone makes a pretty compelling argument for I-Bonds, and gave me something to seriously think about!

Personal Finance By the Book has been writing a series about his first house flip, and it has been fascinating to watch someone go through the process.  Check out this post to read about the conclusion to THIS flip.

Prairie Eco Thrifter has another post in her series about working out at home.  This post is a great reminder that you can easily exercise in your home, especially if you have limited time. (Tip from me: remember, you don’t have to have an actual jump rope to jump rope!)

Retire By 40 reminds us that it is open enrollment time for health/insurance benefits.  I am glad to see RB40 so well insured, I think this is one cost that many people skimp on too much.

Single Mom, Rich Mom is hooked on….books.  I can totally relate to this addiction.  As a matter of fact, I worry for my future self.  I picture that when the kids are gone, I will weigh about 500 pounds and live amongst my books,  reading endlessly.

Squirreler’s is squirreling away tea for the winter!  Read this post to see how you too can save some money at Starbucks.  (If only I could figure out a way to stretch out hot chocolate…)

Watson Inc shares a very honest post about ‘do overs’.  I know there are a lot of things I would do differently if given the opportunity to try again.  Great post.

Wealth Informatics is afraid of failure.  However, I see her accomplishments totally different and see Suba strictly as a success story.

Have a great weekend everyone, and I also want to say happy birthday to my husband!  🙂

Thanks for the link. It is the time for flu shots! My wife, who is an RN, brings it home to me. She had a reaction and I didn’t, go figure!

Great links — the only one you were missing is mine! Haha. Hope you have fully recovered from that shot. I refuse to take one. I hear it can have some really adverse effects.


Jacq November 12, 2011 at 10:33 pm

Happy birthday Kris’s hubby! Kris, I think you would possibly be reading diet books before it got to the half ton cut-off point… 😉 Not that reading something actually equates to DOING anything, but at least it’s a step in the right direction…

Thanks so much for linking to me!


Roshawn @ Watson Inc November 12, 2011 at 11:49 pm
