Weekly Blog Roundup, Catching Up Edition

This article was written by in Link Sharing. 3 comments.

While I was able to check email and even post a few articles while away on vacation, I’ll be spending all of this coming week trying to catch up with the news, comments, and emails that have been left over the past few days. I’m afraid to open Quicken and start recording my expenses for the first time in a week.

Here are some articles from the MoneyBlogNetwork and beyond that I’ve picked out after glancing through my feed reader and pfblogs.org.

I’ll write more about this later. Mighty Bargain Hunter says you should pay cash when buying a car, although I have an article in the works about this, too. Dealerships are less likely to negotiate down if they know you’re not taking their financing.

AllFinancialMatters has 5 tips for brown-bagging your lunch from guest author Cathy from Chief Family Officer. Blueprint for Financial Prosperity warns us not to give out your bank account information.

At Blogging Away Debt, guest blogger paidtwice from I’ve Paid For This Twice Already wrote Debt Doesn’t Have to Be Just a Part of Life.
