Roundup and Link Love – New Format Edition
Posted By Ron On April 17, 2009 @ 2:00 PM In Life | Comments Disabled
Inspired by Frugal Dad , I’m changing the format of my roundups. I’ll be spotlighting a single article from a blog, a sponsor, or other media, then highlighting five additional articles (The Fab Five). After that, a “best of the rest” section.
This week’s spotlight blog is My Money Minute , a personal finance blog from Jason, who “really became aware of his family financial situation about two years ago, and decided things needed to change. Among your typical credit cards , furniture financing, and car loans … “ Jason has been regularly posting since January of this year about his battle with consumer debt and student loans. Here are a few of his posts:
Great job on these, Jason! I look forward to reading more!
“You get what you DON’T pay” according to Jack Bogle (Investment advice from Jack Bogle), but did you know that investors paid over $70.6 billion in mutual fund management expenses and load fees in 2006? Investment management is truly a BIG business.  That is a staggering amount of money NOT working for investors. Like my friend Allan Roth suggests, fees can eat you alive. Choose your investments wisely, keeping in mind how much you really earn after taxes AND fees. @ All Financial Matters.
Learning to delay gratification is at odds with our culture these days, but things may be changing for the better! Check out how to teach your teenager and yourself the importance of waiting. @ Gather Little By Little.
I was glad to see a review of “Debt Cures by Kevin Trudeau”  since I despise hearing that there are secrets only a few know. Lets just say that the facts don’t live up to the hype. Save your money and read personal finance blogs instead! @ The Dough Roller.
