Let’s start this week’s roundup at Mighty Bargain Hunter’s blog. He posted Money Smart Guide’s scariest money mistake. It’s great to learn from someone else’s mistakes and avoid making your own.
Next, Kristina at Dink’s Finance just saved me $10. In her Weekly roundup: Sugar Daddys, Apple and Unwinding for Free, she explained that the movie Jobs was just awful, and I’ll take her word for it. Too bad, it had potential. I guess I’ll catch it on DVD.
At Surviving and Thriving, Donna Freedman wrote Termination Dust, a piece on how she lost her writing gig with MSN money. It wasn’t personal, so did all the other finance writers, but I liked Donna and her writing. looking forward to finding her works at other sites.
Money 101: How to Measure and Track Wealth was the subject at Free Money Finance. People tend to focus on income, but as FMF points out, wealth is the key number to determine if one is rich or not.
At My Personal Finance Journal, Travis asked How Much Should Children Know About The Family Finances? A great question, one I often ponder, myself. How much do your kids know about your finances?
And we’ll wrap up the week with How Much to Budget: Do Household Budget Percentages Work, I like Andrea’s line “The only “rule” you should be following is that you do not spend more than you make. All other budget decisions are up for debate” A budget is a tool to help guide but not so rigid that it can’t be adjusted along the way. A nice article which offered a sample budget that makes a great starting point.
