This Week’s Financial Roundup

Kelly at The Centsible Life wrote about America’s cutest tax deduction & year end tax tips for parents from Turbo Tax. As a mom of four, I’m sure she’s an expert on the topic. A good list of tax related issues parents should be aware of for their kid’s fiscal well being.

Sherri at Serene Journey asks what Three Things You Don’t Need That You Choose To Hold On To. For me, it’s a combination of books, old memorabilia, (concert ticket stubs, theatre Playbills, etc.) and old electronics. Gotta keep hacking away at that clutter.

The Roth conversion continues to get press, and this week’s IRA to Roth IRA: The New Conversion Rules at The Writer’s Coin was an excellent overview of the rules due to kick in starting January.

My Life ROI offers Personal Finance Lessons From Some Board Games. A fun read, bring back memories. Do not pass go, do not collect $200.

Mrs. Micah warns us to Beware Gift Theft. In this last week before Christmas some sage advice. A bit of diligence, putting purchases in your trunk, making sure you lock the car, etc, can help keep the grinch away from your family this year.

Last, this week, is The Wealthy Aren’t Who You Think They Are at Free Money Finance. No, they’re not. The guy driving the expensive car is likely to have financed it, and the guy in the older car, saving that money and adding to his net worth. The post reminds of the latest Thomas J Stanley Book, Stop Acting Rich.

Have a great week.

    Thanks for stopping by. Funny, I agree with you on HFC, it shows as a book I was reading, but I never quite finished it, and didn’t write a review.

    Thanks for the mention! You enjoying Hot, Flat, and Crowded? I loved the first chapter and then it slowed down.

    As a matter of fact, that guy driving the expensive car didn’t even finance it, but leased it! Well, the more, the merrier for me to snatch them used out of lease with low mileage and still under manufacturer’s warranty. 😉
