This article was written by in Link Sharing. 8 comments.


Here are some articles from the MoneyBlogNetwork (and beyond) that caught my eye over the past week.

Free Money Finance explains investment rebalancing. Jim from Blueprint for Financial Prosperity likes rebates. Mighty Bargain Hunter has some tips for Flexible Spending Accounts.

Dana from Not Made of Money has a guest post on Five Cent Nickel: Savers vs. Spenders. JLP from AllFinancialMatters describes the 401(k) contribution limits for 2007.

Ramit from I Will Teach You to be Rich is selling an e-book of some tips by him and a number of other contributors. He asked me to contribute but I had a busy week and dropped the ball. Check out his 2007 Guide to Kicking Ass.

Mapgirl from Mapgirl’s Fiscal Challenge looks at an article about affording private school. Here’s the original article on Bankrate.com. She attended private school, and it looks like she turned out all right.

Looks like I turned out alright? Are you sure? ;-)

Private school on scholarship is a great place to screw up your kids about money… But that’s a whole ‘nother post!

Now this is an interesting thought, and one I actually agree with to a certain extent. I attended an expensive private school on full scholarship. I was smart. But I was stupid, too. That is, I let myself be sucked into the world of conspicuous consumption that the wealthy kids were able to live in. Only, I couldn’t afford it, and my parents certainly couldn’t afford it. I had to fund this lifestyle on credit.

I’d say mapgirl’s inspired a post at GRS…

Oops. I meant private college. I went to public high school (and grade school). Still, it’s enough of an idea for an entry.
