It’s a new month, and that means more posts from around the blogosphere. Here’s some of the ones I found interesting from the MoneyBlogNetwork and beyond. Perhaps you will, too.
Nickel inspired discussion on withdrawing contributions from Roth IRA accounts.
JLP from AllFinancialMatters questioned his dentist’s bill and saved some money. He’s still not as happy as he’d like to be.
FMF over on Free Money Finance believes he may have found an investing strategy that delivers an 18% annual return. Sound too good to be true?
Mighty Bargain Hunter notes that a large sub-prime mortgage lender has begun massively laying off employees. Bubble alert! (If I can convince the country the bubble is popping, maybe I can get a house for a reasonable price.)
Speaking of buying a house, Jim from Blueprint for Financial Prosperity has six of ten things real estate agents won’t tell you.
Personal Finance Advice wonders whether you’d rather be fat or poor. Why does it have to be one or the other? Can’t I steal the cake and eat it, too? Most people would rather be jobless than fat, but why go halfway?
Miserly Bastard from yet another blog about money (Yet Another Blog About Money) is prepared for emergencies. His emergency kit has a gas mask that sounds like it’s from that scary episode of Doctor Who last year.
Some additions to Consumerism Commentary today: I added a panel on the right that displays the current month’s top comment-writers, so don’t be shy about getting in on the discussions. I added a listing of “related entries” for each post, so you can browse other Consumerism Commentary articles if desired. I’m also toying with Linkworth and Text Link Ads. Most won’t notice any differences. Let’s see if these advertising programs do anything for me.
