This week absolutely blazed by for me, but I’m particularly proud to have written what almost amounts to a novel – a two-part series on applying Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits to personal finance. Check out Part I or Part II when you have some time to spare.
Without further ado, here’s my weekly roundup:
- Bible Money Matters asks and debates if personal finance should be taught in school. Join in on the fun!
- Matt Jabs is guest-posting at Five Cent Nickel, and wrote a fantastic piece this week about powerful ways to improve your life. This takes a look at many different life-changing approaches and is a must-read this week.
- From Get Rich Slowly this week comes a post covering common car-dealer tricks. Some of these will make your hair stand on end!
- Also from Get Rich Slowly comes a list of your secret credit scores. How eye-opening!
- If you’re out looking for a home, read Suburban Dollar’s 3 things that could cost you your dream home. Great list of things to look out for.
- The funny post of the week goes to Saving for Serenity’s 7 reasons to stop tracking your finances.
Carnivals This Week
I participated in two separate personal finance carnivals this week. I encourage you to check out both for some fantastic reading:
- Financial Highway hosted the Festival of Frugality – Honeymoon Destination Edition, featuring my post on controlling pet costs.
- Suburban Dollar hosted the 210th Carnival of Personal Finance, mentioning my post on TED and personal finance.
