This roundup is in celebration of finals being over! I apologize for the premature celebration if your school isn’t done with finals yet. What better way to celebrate than to catch up on things that aren’t printed in textbooks or scribbled in unreadable handwriting. Here are a few of the most interesting posts I’ve found over the past week.
- Did your parents help pay for college? Find out why Mighty Bargain Hunter doesn’t think parents should worry about paying for college.
- Do you have trouble keeping track of who owes you money or who you owe money? J.D. at Get Rich Slowly shares a tool that will help you track shared bills and expenses.
- Money Smart Life explains why Christmas credit is a big mistake.
- Stop by Green Panda Treehouse to read about another soon-to-be graduate and her personal goals after graduation.
- Trent at The Simple Dollar has been doing some soul searching and explores the meaning of it all.
- My Good Cents shares a simple way to save money on juice. Not sure if I’m a huge fan of the method described, but it definitely works.
I also participated in a couple carnivals this week, and it was a lot of fun. I definitely enjoy submitting my articles and reading all of the great content submitted by others. In fact, I even signed up to host my first one in a few months. That’s right, I’ll be hosting the Festival of Frugality on March 4, 2008. I’m really looking forward to it.
This past week Money Smart Life did great job of hosting the Carnival of Personal Finance and included my article on 6 Outrageous Fees (and How to Avoid Them). Thanks to the additional readers I got from participating in the carnival, there were some great comments left with even more great tips on how to avoid fees.
Thanks for stopping by, and y’all come back now, ya hear?
