TaxCut Review, End Your Marriage for Money, and Splurging on a Camera

This article was written by in Link Sharing. 2 comments.

Here are some articles from around the web that I’ve enjoyed lately.

Free Money Finance’s co-worker reviewed H&R Block’s Tax Cut software, the same version that I am giving five Consumerism Commentary readers for free. “First impression is that the user interface is nice and easy to move around. Everything progressed in a logical sequence. I liked the listing of all the topics that were going to be covered before each section and you checked which topics you wanted to deal with and those were the only topics that it ran you through. It speeds things up when I do not have to go through every single topic like you have to do with TaxAct.”

What would you do for $100,000? Would you end your marriage? Paul from Wise Bread asks how much money it would take for you to do something you normally wouldn’t. This is a conundrum that seems to be popular in certain television shows like The Moment of Truth and Fear Factor. (I’ve seen no more than 5 minutes of either.)

Jim from Blueprint for Financial Prosperity warns readers not to buy or sell stocks on emotionally-charged news. Jim bought Enron when the stock was going down because he thought everyone was overreacting. He’s learned from this mistake.

Boston Gal from Boston Gal’s Open Wallet instructs how to make splurging on a digital camera pay for itself repeatedly in a guest post on I Will Teach You to be Rich. So far, I’ve neither made nor saved money through my camera’s use. I am planning to take a photography class, however, so I may end up spending money thanks to this particular purchase.

Wow, breaking your marriage for money seems pretty radical. But I am sure many people (Heather Mills)have done it before.

For $100,000? Pish. I wouldn’t end my marriage for anything but that’s just paltry. I mean that’s Micah’s student debt…I’m willing to spend $100k + over the course of our marriage just to pay it off.
