Carnival of Personal Finance #11 Highlights

Email  Print Print  

JLP at AllThingsFinancial has published the 11th edition and it weighs in at almost twenty submissions. Predictably, top billing goes towards the recent skyrocketing gasoline/oil prices but there are some good articles on popular personal finance topics such as budgeting, debt management, and financial planning. Here are the ones that piqued my interest:

Clutter2Cash has a very interesting article on creating a personal 401(k), for those of you with self-employment income. This is something I might take advantage of in the future since the fees of a personal 401(k) are much higher (with justification).

Dawn at Frugal For Life has joined the “homebuying tips” fray with her own suggestions on tips before making the big purchase. I would argue that the minimum number of years you intend to stay somewhere before you buy should be seven years, not two.

Ironman has created a very helpful hybrid vs. standard car comparison calculator and submitted it this week. It would’ve been awesome if he had listed some common EPA mileage ratings but the calculator is still useful regardless.

    What do you think of this new Citi feq. flyer card… it seems pretty good compared to any other i’ve seen.

    Thanks for the mention Jim 🙂 I think it’s a great option for those who want to (and can) maximize retirement savings and I am surprised at how few people actually know about it. thanks for spreading the word
