Greetings everyone! I am still waiting to get to that cider mill here in Michigan, but the rain is not allowing me to go. However, it gives me a good reason to relax this weekend and just enjoy the family, and hang out around the house. (Also in the plans is to finish reading the third book from the Dragon Tattoo series. That is my secret mission.)
Speaking of relaxing, why don’t you take some time off and read some of the great articles listed below. You may learn something, and laugh along the way!
Barb Friedberg covers all kinds of ways to earn money ‘passively’. Check out both Parts 1 and 2. (I want more passive income! It may be the only way to associate me and ‘passive’.)
Budgeting In The Fun Stuff covers all the way she would have her own business handled, if she had her own business that is. I say, go for it BFS!
First Gen American writes about different hobbies she has tried, from making cheese to stained glass windows. Makes my hobby of ‘scrapbooking’ seem pretty pedestrian. (Can you still call it a hobby if you never do it? I think I am about 13 years behind on pictures.)
Invest It Wisely celebrates his 6 month blogging anniversary. I can’t wait to learn how I have won all the prizes! Seriously though, congratulations to Kevin!
Money Beagle accomplished the goal of waiting until October 1st to turn on the furnace. Good thing that was never my goal! (You can read all about my furnace views on Monday.)
Money Reasons feels that President Obama hates him. Does Obama hate you too?? Read and see…
Squirreler shares the interesting concept of how market patterns correlate with consumer sentiment. Can you make this theory work for you and your portfolio?
The Saved Quarter shows a very detailed breakdown of their October budget, and shows how they make a little go a long way. What discipline!
Watson Inc. discusses how much you REALLY pay for that mortgage, along with discussion of what would happen if mortgage rates dropped to 0. I wish my mortgage debt was gone, but I think it takes more than just wishing for that to happen.
Wealth Informatics shares an interesting conversation that was overheard about how to get around the rules to obtain a credit card. (Just go to a frat party, drink beer, eat pizza, and have a frat brother co-sign for you. I know what I am doing this Saturday night!)
I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. You never know, you might have a few new credit cards come Monday morning! (Just don’t co-sign for anyone else…)
