Best of Consumerism Commentary, February 2010

Don’t forget! Consumerism Commentary is in the running to win a few Plutus Awards. The Plutus Awards are designed to celebrate the best personal finance resources such as books, savings accounts, and blogs. Vote here now before the deadline on March 16. The finalists were selected from among those that received the highest number of nominations in each category.

To be honest, since I created the awards, I am not completely comfortable being in the final running. If I do happen to win a Plutie — and given the number of fans some of the larger blogs have, it’s unlikely — I will pass the prize along to the next highest in the category.

The Consumerism Commentary Podcast featured more excellent topics and guests including behavioral economics with Gary Belsky, tax tips for big life changes with Bob Meighan, Financial Samurai, and Toyota recalls with Jeff Bartlett from Consumer Reports.

In a few hours, Tom Dziubek and I will be recording a podcast with J.D. Roth from Get Rich Slowly about his new book, Your Money: The Missing Manual. Stay tuned; it will be an exciting show and you will hear it first here on an upcoming Sunday.

Needs vs Wants is a good one. I NEED to get out of debt, I don’t necessarily WANT to. I can think of a thousand and one things I’d rather do with the money, but I got myself into the hole, I’ll get myself out.

I’m sure we all know the old phrase, “If you find yourself in a hole, first thing you do is stop digging.”

Good luck!
