It’s been a short week for me and the blog, but I’m encouraged by the great material I have lined up for next week already. Meanwhile, like every Friday, I’d like to share with you some of the best posts I have read this week on other blogs.
- Fine Tuned Finances shows us how to ask the hard questions when going through your financial evaluation. It’s important to have a plan for when something major strikes.
- Two related articles I found worth reading this week had to do with modeling yourself after successful people – the 5 habits of millionaires from Bible Money Matters and 20 attributes of people who have improved their finances from My Money Blog.
- From Wise Bread come 5 strategies for getting a free meal – all unique in their own way.
- You’ve been taught to think that health insurance will protect you in case of a catastrophic disease. That may be true, but read about why most bankruptcies are still caused by medical bills, presented by Yielding Wealth.
- I participated in the Carnival of Pecuniary Delights “twice,” only because I was already in Ohio when last week’s went live. I hope you take a minute to check it out anyway – here’s the 10th Carnival of Pecuniary Delights at Counting My Pennies.
- This week’s 11th Carnival of Pecuniary Delights was published at My Journey to Millions – also some great posts worth checking out.
- Finally, Money Under 30 hosted the Carnival of Personal Finance on Monday with more good reads.
An additional side note that a lot of bloggers have reported on this week – Microsoft will be discontinuing its Microsoft Money line, so your choices are down to Quicken (for as long as that will continue) and a varied stew of other desktop and newly emerging online products.
Have a fantastic weekend!
