Last week I wrote about the four “teams” I have in FMF’s March Madness tournament and the results for two of my games Round 1 have been announced:

Round 1, Game 6 – WIN!
In a resounding win over Counter-Intuitive, my post Understanding Your Financial Fortress moved to the second round and now it faces my friend and MBN compatriot’s post, Ten Unconventional Uses for the Penny, in a battle that hopefully won’t but probably will come down to the wire. Comment in your vote for Round Two 9-16 to help push Financial Fortress to the next level, thanks!

Round 1, Game 24 – WIN!
This doozy pitted How To Invest With Only $100 against Five Cent Nickel’s family blog, Raising4Boys, and their article on Buying Legos on the Cheap. It was a hard fought battle that came down to the wire but my post came out on top. Yet another downed MBNer…

Lastly, if you’re interested in seeing some of my thoughts on ethics and money (sort of), as well as the thoughts of Trent and JD, Grad Money Matters interviewed us. A start to a happy ending for one Powerball winner, Brad Duke who won in 2005, is not something you read every day – as he says, most end up destitute or dead within a few years.

  1. Congrats on the wins… I must admit that I voted for your invest with $100 over my own post on Legos.
