I can’t believe it’s March already, and we’ve had the first of the home nation’s patron saints for the year. Happy Saint David’s Day for yesterday. It’s also Mothering Sunday, so Happy Mother’s Day mum, even though I’m 98% certain that you don’t read plonkee money.

Busyness at work has prevented me doing as much reading as I normally do, but as usual, what I have read has been excellent.

First the thought-provoking:

  • from the carnival of personal finance, hosted by broke grad student, my favourite pick was wedding as status symbol @ feminist finance - you are not a lesser couple if you have a cheaper wedding
  • on a similarly feminist theme, I loved the latest sleeping with money post from Aundi @ queercents, about the pretty girl privilege - which of course isn’t a privilege or source of power at all
  • Dough Roller gives us the seven habits of wealth with some nice quotes as well
  • J.D. @ Get Rich Slowly offers a beautifully crafted post. And let’s us in on the key to wealth as well.
  • gibble @ Gather Little by Little has inspired a bunch of people to post their financial epiphanies by posting Gina’s as a guest article
  • paidtwice’s epiphany wasn’t really her’s, it was her husband’s - which I think is quite funny
  • Lynnae @ being frugal didn’t so much have an epiphany as a slow and gradual awakening and is now thoroughly getting her act together despite recent trials and tribualations

The the more practical topics:

  • Pinyo @ Moolanomy covers life insurance in three parts
  • Patrick @ Cash Money Life helps you with your salary negotiations (I’m putting him on standby if I decide to get a new job)
  • David @ My Two Dollars tells us to take care of what we own to save money with some specific ideas
  • Single Guy Money is foiling dastardly identity thieves by giving us some suggestions for protecting our identies
  • Mrs. Micah collates advice and suggestions on hiding money from an abusive spouse

Have a nice Sunday night everyone.

  1. Just let me know when it’s negotiation time. I’ll work for a percentage of the raise I get for you! ;)

    Thanks for the mention. :)

  3. lol!

    Well it was his epiphany but also mine - mine was that I didn’t have to just let him spend whatever he wanted just because he was the one earning the money. lol
