A SuperBowl Sunday Roundup

First, the Patriots were out. Ok, I’m from New York, I can cheer for the Jets, I’d gone to a few games as a kid, my uncle had season tickets. Nope, out as well. So I’ll be watching today for the commercials, and partying with friends. But, still, it’s Sunday, and time to look back at the week for the best reading my fellow PF (uh, personal finance) Bloggers had to offer.

Let’s start the game, er, reading with How To Get Excited at Financially Poor. With the economy the way it is (and for me, looking out my window at 8 foot high snow piles), it’s easy to get depressed. Kevin offers a great strategy  on how to get out of that funk, and get excited.

At Faithful With A Few, we get Valentine’s Day Ideas: 8 Frugal Ways To Declare Your Love. Reminding us that romance and money are not synonymous, KC offers a great list of ideas for this coming Valentines Day. With 8 to choose from, I’m sure you’ll find one or two that help you say “I love you” this year.

At Canadian Finance Blog, my friend Tom Drake (his guest writer, actually) asks Would You Invest In The O’Leary Funds? You can take a read of this, and decide. Me, I’m more of an ETF/Index investor, not big on managed funds.

A silly take on some of ‘what’s in your wallet’ from a friend to the north at Credit, Eh, 7 Cool Credit Card Designs You Want in Your Wallet. Hello Kitty on your credit card? Maybe that’s making a statement. I’d love to see one with skull and crossbones to remind of of how bad that debt can become if we’re not careful.

At Canadian Personal Finance Blog, a personal story, Better to Be Right, in a Service Industry? A tough situation dealing with a child in a babysitting are inside a store, makes you think about many aspects of dealing with people, and customer service, in general.

    Thanks for the mention, yes, using services that are “free” sometimes has a way of costing me later.

    What a incredible game by the packer clan last night. It was one of the most memorable Superbowl Sundays in recent history.
