Link Round-Up: New Year’s Day Edition

January 1, 2011 · 148 comments

in Link Round Up

Happy New Year everyone!  I hope everyone is excited for 2011- I know I am!  It feels like spring up here in Michigan, it’s raining and warm (for January).  My Spartans are playing in the Capital One Bowl.  I plan on eating a lot.  It’s going to be a great day, and year!

So, while you are sitting around relaxing and enjoying the end of holiday break, why not read some great posts from the past week?

101 Centavos has a very interesting post about real-life auctions.  I have never been to an auction besides the one our school has every year, and the auctions 101 Centavos describes seem so fun!  (As long as you follow his rules and don’t end up overspending.)  I totally picture myself going to some of these cute little auctions once the kids are in college and I have spare time.

Aloysa’s Kitchen Sink shares her first impressions of China. I have never traveled to another country besides Canada, so I love to hear what other people’s travel experiences are. I look forward to a future post from Aloysa to hear even more.

Barb Friedberg Personal Finance offers some great tax tips, and just in time for tax season. Barb raises a very good point when she asks how much time do you REALLY spend thinking about your taxes, especially compared to any other major purchase you might make. I admit I probably do need to spend more time coming up with ways to minimize my tax bill.

Biz of Life posted a great quote relating the voters in California to the passengers on the Titanic. (But you have to go read the post to get the gist of it.)

Buck Inspire has a big credit card bill from traveling in Europe. I am with Buck on this one, traveling is worth the cost. He suggests you choose your debt battles wisely, and I agree with him 100 percent. Sure we could retire sooner if we didn’t travel as much as we do, but the experiences we have shared as a family are well worth the cost.

Budgeting in the Fun Stuff asks if you would retire young if you could. She would, I would, but some would not. I do think you have to plan for it though or you might find yourself somewhat lost and watching ‘Twilight Zone’ reruns all day. (I saw a great one yesterday!)

Financial Samurai tells us not to be afraid to make New Years Resolutions. After reading all the goals/resolution posts this past week, I am determined to come up with my own. I am actually looking forward to writing the post, and I appreciate the ‘push’ to make some goals for 2011. Sorry, but you will have to wait a couple days to read them, I know you are excited…

First Gen American shares some great ideas for those that are just waiting for the world to solve their problems. Of course, those very people probably would never see that the post applies to them, but we can always hope.

Free From Broke shares his financial secret weapon, but I will not divulge what it is. Go read the post and find out.

Grumpy Rumblings of the Untenured give their opinions on what they term “Hot Bed Issues”. (No, not ‘bed’ issues, but controversial issues.) The comments are as interesting as the post here, so read all the way through.

KrantCents shares the importance of board games, and I couldn’t agree more. I love board games, as my mom and everyone else in my family can attest to. It is cheap entertainment, and is almost always a guaranteed good time.

Len Penzo shares the results from the 2010 predictions of the Magic 8 Ball. I think the Magic 8 Ball should have a job on a major network because it was quite accurate, more so than most pundits. Read the post and submit a question for the 8 Ball for 2011!

Live Real, Now has some very specific goals for 2011 and accomplished a lot in 2010. Suggestions for additional 2011 goals are being accepted, so feel free to head over there and post a comment.

Minting Nickels shares the inner-conflict she had when going toy shopping the day after Christmas This post made me want a Batman Plushie Doll myself, so I can see why she wanted to get to the store.

Molly On Money shares how her 6 months without spending on clothes went. She did a fantastic job, and picked up some great deals using gift cards and such. Quite an accomplishment in my opinion!

Money Reasons shares his new approach to New Year’s Resolutions. I hope the new plan works well for him! I have never had a resolutions survive past the end of January, but I also have not put much energy into resolutions either.

MoneyCone shared some great info on Royalty Trusts. I have to admit I learned a lot from this post!

My Journey to Millions shares his updates to his dividend portfolio for 2011. I learned a lot from this post as I was not familiar with the Aristocrat Index, and it forced me to take one more step toward setting up my own dividend portfolio. (I need the stock market and my bank to be open first…)

Retire By 40 provides a year-in-review for his goals for 2010. What I really liked about his post is how he graded his own progress.

The Saved Quarter introduces the Saved Quarter Challenge. Head over to the website and sign up with the intent of saving 25 percent of your income. (Or whatever percent you deem feasible, but it should be challenging.)

Squirrelers gives 5 rules for debt-free living. I think number one is my favorite- picturing yourself working while you are old. That would prevent me from buying something frivolous right then and there.

Wealth Informatics provides a ‘wealth’ of information about tax changes for 2011. My head spins when I think about all the tax laws. Flat tax anyone?

I and also my guys ended up checking out the nice key points on your web blog and then all of the sudden came up with an awful suspicion I never expressed respect to the blog owner for those secrets. The boys appeared to be as a result joyful to see them and already have in actuality been tapping into them. We appreciate you being indeed thoughtful and for obtaining this form of high-quality subjects millions of individuals are really needing to be aware of. Our honest apologies for not expressing appreciation to sooner.
