readme: Personal Finance Posts of the Week

Email  Print Print  

I wanted to throw a special shout out to Jeremy at GenX Finance, who has been linking to me frequently in his Friday Five posts (every single one except the first one) even though some of the stuff I write may be utter crap. Jeremy writes a lot of commentary type stuff and one article I found most interesting was the one about what you should know about the Pension Protection Act.

Part of the joys of blogging about personal finance and reading personal finance blogs is that a lot of other people’s experiences mirror you own and so you can learn a lot of immediately applicable information. When I read Flexo’s post about saving for a wedding, it immediately resonated. How many personal finance bloggers have recently gotten married or engaged?

FMF loves that rebates are going the way of the dinosaurs. I think rebates are a scam too, they should just give you the discount, but I think their value is still there. It allows the diligent to get a better deal on something… I think I’ll write a bigger post about this sometime next week.

Nickel writes about establishing credit with a new taxpayer identification number, specifically his new business’s EIN.

The end of the year means the end of Flexible Spending Accounts for many folks, including myself, and MBH has a few tips to make sure you spend what you have.

Looks like JLP bought some crap!

LAMoneyGuy has an interesting post about philanthropy and how disproportionate the giving is. Please read it all the way to the end where someone making $35k donates $500 a year and says it’s “not that much when you think about it.” LAMoneyGuy, in typical personal finance blogger honesty, admits to making more and donating less… until recently, I was in his camp too (I’m still donating less, as a percentage of income, than the 35k guy though). If you’ve never donated anything to any cause, give it a try with something small like $20, and see how it feels. $20 isn’t much, it’s a mere five cents a day, but it’ll help someone.

Have a pleasant weekend!

    Thanks for the shoutout, I didn’t even see this post until I noticed it in my technorati links. 🙂
