* Think Dual Incomes is a Great Thing? Think Again. Some decisions aren’t meant to be purely financial. Actually, my statement is incorrect. Not many decisions are meant to be purely financial. The decision to stay home to care for children while your spouse supports the family is one such decision that is about more than just money. [The Golden Parachute]
* Five Ways You’re (Supposedly) Wasting Money. I agree with every point FMF makes in his criticism of the Yahoo article. [Free Money Finance]
* Stop Crying Me a River. You Took on the Risk, Now Deal With the Consequences. From the title, I thought this would be a post about pacing blame for sub-prime loan blow-ups on the borrower.

* Do You Really Know How Much it Costs to Own Your Car? SVB did a great job putting together the factors that affect a car’s price and actual ownership costs. I’d add that all of this has been done for you if you use Edmunds.com’s True Cost to Own calculator. Whether or not it’s accurate on a case-by-case basis, it does provide a standard for comparing makes and models, just like EPA ratings. [The Digerati Life]
My post on target retirement funds made the list as well.
