Time To Read Some Great Posts!

Happy Weekend!  Hope all is great with everyone.  I, of course, am still happy that the Spartans beat U of M last Saturday, and now I can go back to not caring much about football.  🙂

It was another great week of reading for me.  There are so many wonderful writers out there on the internet.  Sit back and read some or all of these posts.  I promise you will learn something, and probably laugh a bit.

Biz of Life writes about how health care is creating market-based solutions with the advent of Minute Clinics and even on-line advice.

Budgeting In The Fun Stuff learns to appreciate her previously hated car, the Aveo.

Faithful With A Few analyzes the Brett Favre situation, but not the way you might think…

Financially Poor discusses how saving money may not be worth it if it takes up a large amount of time.

Financial Samurai wrote a great post asking why people are leaving Obama.  This is one of my favorite posts from the Samurai, and it also reiterates how my buddy Geithner does not pay his taxes.

First Gen American shares more tales of Babci (one of my heroes) and makes the great point that ideas do become obsolete, and you have to adapt.

Grumpy Rumblings of the Untenured shares some books that they wanted to love, but just couldn’t enjoy. Do you ever read any books that really disappointed you?

Invest It Wisely does a great review of Barb Friedberg’s book ’20 Minute Guide to Investing.

Len Penzo offers a guide to help you at the polls this November.  Shows some great proposals that should be on a ballot, such as the ‘Windfall Spending Act’.  He also helps guide you on how you should vote on his imaginary proposals.

Money Reasons provides some great info about Roth IRAs and making the most of dividends.  (Money Reasons LOVES his dividends!)

Personal Finance By The Book has a great post teaching men to go after a Proverbs 31 woman!  (No, not quiet and subservient like you  may be thinking…)  It is also a nice devotion to his wife.

Squirrelers writes a great post about the Duke graduate that wrote a rather interesting thesis and power point presentation about her Duke ‘conquests’. There is also a lot of interesting discussion in the comments.

The Kitchen Sink shares interesting thoughts in both American and Russian frugality. It gave me a new perspective!

The Saved Quarter gives advice on how to make $1000. There are a lot of creative ideas in this post.

Watson Inc. has a fantastic, in-depth post about taxes, both good and bad. Includes a quote from Ben Stein, who I just love and almost always agree with.

Sustainable Life Blog shares an interesting story of how Christmas can kind of sneak up on you, even though the signs are obvious. Start preparing now!

Wealth Artisan shares his internal struggle over buying or refurbishing a chandelier, including pictures. I love the final result!

Thanks for highlighting the wrap! Definitely gonna do some catch up reading!



Financial Samurai October 16, 2010 at 2:42 pm

Ah yes, and did you note how I put up your Sparty mascot on your Member post??? I figured you’d like that as a dual alumn!!


Squirrelers October 16, 2010 at 3:59 pm

Thanks for including my article! Nice roundup, and great week of posts – I particularly enjoyed the one on Tips, though the rest were really good too. Keep up the great work!

Thanks for including us!


Money Reasons October 16, 2010 at 11:27 pm

Thanks Kris, great list as always!

I do love my dividends! I wish I have a lot more money invested in them… definitely some day, some day…

Actually ever since I was a teenager, I always wanted funds with dividend producting stocks for Birthdays, Christmas, entertaiment money, etc. I just wasn’t in a position to be able to afford to do it back then. But now, being debt-free, I finally have the opportunity! woo hoo!

Thank you so much for including me! Means a lot!


Khaleef @ KNS Financial October 17, 2010 at 2:16 pm

Hey Kris. Thanks for including my article in your round up! There are some great articles here!


Kevin@InvestItWisely October 17, 2010 at 4:51 pm

Thanks for the mention, Kris! I haven’t checked out Watson’s article yet (been a little bit out of the blogosphere the past few days); I’ll have to go check that one out!


First Gen American October 17, 2010 at 5:12 pm

I’m so thrilled to hear that Babci is one of your heroes. I wish I started documenting all the crazy stuff she’s done years ago. There is so much I’ve forgotten.

Thanks for the link. This week went by way too fast and I haven’t been able to read as many blogs this week as I’d have liked.


Crystal @ BFS October 17, 2010 at 9:16 pm

Thank you for the link love and helping me see that my car could be worse…


The Biz of Life October 18, 2010 at 9:10 am

Thanks for the mention.
