quick selection of great reads

Just a little something to tide you over the weekend:

  • free downloadable budget spreadsheet @ gather little by little - free is good, budgeting is good, spreadsheets are awesome, what’s not to like
  • financial IQ test @ moolanomy - questions to make you think about what you know, and don’t know about personal finance in several categories, plus there are helpful links for more information on the different topics
  • 50 ways to save money by not wasting @ cleverdude - combine saving money with some top-notch eco-friendly ideas
  • why I’m glad I’m not a homeowner @ notes from the frugal trenches - yes, it’s true, homes cost you money. Lots of money. Rent whilst you can
  • starting a blog won’t make you rich @ mrs. micah - I can attest to the truth of this, as I’ve started a blog, and I’m not rich - by the way you might see an advert on this site for a loan of 183.2% APR I’d strongly suggest not taking it out ;) I figure none of you are silly enough to do so anyway

Next week there are some exciting plans, I’ve got a guest post lined up, a couple of seasonal things in mind as well as some musings that I hope you’ll like.

Have a great weekend.

  3. I clicked through from my reader just to see the ad and how it was phrased - can’t seem to find it though…

  4. I love the idea of saving money by not wasting it.

    This skill requires taking time to consider your purchase before you make it. Are there other alternatives that are just as good at a lesser price.

    Since I’ve slowed my lifestyle down a bunch, I’ve had more time to compare what I’m doing cost wise.

    I also buy less items because it takes more time to research them.

  5. Got a suggestion… request really

    Looking at http://www.thesimpledollar.com/2008/06/04/money-magazines-7-investments-you-need-now-portfolio-theory-and-my-own-plans-for-the-future/

    He talks about vanguard etc, and investment allocation.
