Welcome to the Monday morning edition of link love, courtesy of the holiday here in the US. I hope you are enjoying time with your family this weekend as I am and please hug a serviceman or servicewoman today!
With that, here are some of my favorite articles from the past week:
My Two Dollars: Are You Ready To Manage Your Parents’ Money and Healthcare? Nope. My family didn’t really talk about stuff like this – I am going to have to try and break the ice with my parents soon.
Plonkee Money: I Should Choose Frugal Over Cheap For Appliances. I struggle with frugal vs cheap too and it seems Plonkee is starting to get a grip on it.
Single Guy Money: Here’s The Best Picture I’ve Seen All Year. He did it! Paid off the monster car loan. Yay!
Gather Little By Little: The Emotional Snowball. I really love this analogy. Even though I do interest order, I can find highs in the little milestones.
No Credit Needed: Looking Back – Ten Years Ago. This was part of a writing project and a great idea. I am scared to think about my finances ten years ago though… 1998… hmm.
Remodeling this Life: A Life Of Action. I have been feeling this way too – I need to do instead of just think. I have been unpacking those final few boxes that are hanging around, hanging pictures on the walls, and just… living.
Master Your Card: What I Think Of Dave Ramsey. Although I love the idea behind the snowball I don’t implement it in the same way Ramsey does. And Ramsey certainly has his share of critics.
Are You Going To Be This Way… : Does Anyone Ever Get Over Being Bullied? This is much more parenting than finance, but it was a shocking story to me and I’m still upset reading it. I just imagine it one of my children and I want to cry. So I’ll also leave you with a more finance-oriented post from the same blog, I Don’t Wanna Work. I have a similar (but not the same) situation and many times, I don’t want to either.
This Wasn’t In The Plan: I Finally Got Walgreens To Work For Me. I have been a failure at CVS so I think I will try Walgreens too. I want free toiletries, darnit!
Wise Bread (Philip Brewer) : Pay Attention. Just – yes. I love Philip’s stuff.
The Bright Side Of Debt: My Emergency Fund’s New Home. I had to do something similar, although ING is where I “hid” mine since I don’t have ATM access to it. Out of sight, out of mind…
