This week we start with a Guest post at Out of Your Rut, A better way to budget. I like the idea of first tracking your spending to have a baseline from which to progress. Read the rest if you can use an idea on how to get started. The Author Paul Williams blogs at Provident Planning.
Miranda Marquit asks Using Your Coupons: Is it Really a Good Deal? It might not always be, but when then are used right, there’s some savings to be had. A nice post to shed some light on this topic.
Kristin Harad, posting at fat wallet, asks, Are You Saving Too Much for Your Children’s Education? She helps you to understand why your own finances, emergency fund, and retirement savings should take priority.
Neal Frankle over at The Wealth Pilgrim (and a fellow Money Maven Network member) shares his thoughts on How To Select The Right Roth Beneficiary. This issue is too important to be overlooked, the wrong choices can cost your family quite a bit of money over time. Read Neal’s post, and choose wisely.

And last this week, Jason at Redeeming Riches, tell us The #1 Thing You Should Do With Your Money (And Probably Don’t). I don’t want to ruin the punchline, you’ll just have to visit to find out.
