Financial Link Love: 9/1/11

01 Sep Financial Link Love: 9/1/11

Well I swore I’d do better this time at sharing the links I like from around the web sooner but I blew it again. I might as well schedule this every two weeks instead of thinking I can get it done every week.

Anywho, here are the top posts I’ve read in the last week or so:

Derek at Lifeandmyfinances is giving away an iPad2! Derek also wrote a great post about paying off your house in 4 years.

Family Money Values wrote about her first experience at a tax lien sale.

If you’re a Warren Buffet fan, you may not like Tony Chou’s (not so great) opinion about him at the Investorz Blog.

Travis relates his weight loss to getting out of debt.

Barb Friedberg took the 7 Links Challenge, then nominated me to do the same!

Melissa wrote about the true cost of eating out at Beating Broke.

Shawanda shared tips for saving money on movie tickets.

Andy shared his first storage unit auction experience at Tight Fisted Miser.

Everything Finance had a good post on the benefits of paying bi-weekly on your mortgage.

Jeff Rose at Good Financial Cents included one of our posts in a major roundup of Top Family Finance Articles to Live Your Life to The Fullest

I made my first member post for the Yakezie network telling my story about going from being pretty good with money to living in Financial Excellence.


Blogs that mentioned us in the last few weeks:

Ryan included us in the Carnival of Financial Planning – Edition 198.

Glen at Parenting Family Money included our post in their Totally Money Carnival #33.

Pastor Personal Finance mentioned us in the Best of Money Carnival #117, where our post was chosen as #8 out of 70 posts submitted.

We made the Festival of Frugality #294 – Employment jokes edition. The jokes are right up my alley – very punny.

Barb Friedberg included us in a collection of recommended reading in a post about negotiating like a pro.

Invest in the Markets liked my post about needs vs. wants.

      Out of my mind? Most definitely! The carnivals are all running together these days. Did I forget to mention that one or did I mention it too many times?
