Here’s what’s been happening on the MoneyBlogNetwork and beyond in the past week.
Five Cent Nickel was on vacation but he opened his blog to guest writers. “Frugal” wrote about leverage, the secret of making big money. Mighty Bargain Hunter laments the loss of a discount grocery store.
AllFinancialMatters says men don’t know jack about retirement. Free Money Finance wants you to stop living paycheck-to-paycheck. Blueprint for Financial Prosperity agrees with Robert Kiyosaki regarding mutual funds and the real winners.
For another perspective, Moomin Valley says Kiyosaki is wrong.
Kira from Penny Foolish has $400 in her emergency fund, but she’s thinking of beefing it up after considering her employment situation. Three to six months of living expenses is a good target.
Amanda from Young and Broke writes about shopping for car insurance. My rates were lowered this year, by about $15 a month.
That’s it for this week’s wrap-up. It was a busy week for me, and unfortunately I didn’t have the chance to write as much as I like to. To those celebrating the American holiday this weekend, enjoy!
