It’s been nice to have a work schedule that’s back to normal — well, as normal as it can get in my industry! As always, my fellow personal finance bloggers outdid themselves with thought-provoking posts. Here’s a sampling of the week’s best:
PF Posts that Piqued My Interest
Over at A Gai Shan Life, Revanche talks about Furniture Shopping on Craigslist — something I’ve been thinking about. Reuse, recycle AND save money!
J. Money at Budgets Are Sexy gives an overview of the “Move Your Money” Movement. I’m already in a community bank, and the improved customer service alone makes it worthwhile.
Forest on Finance buys himself and his wife a belated Christmas present in Our New TV. He gets a great deal and the first thing he does is watch Buffy!
Mrs. Money doesn’t get instant satisfaction, so she says in I Can’t Bring Myself to Pay Extra on the Mortgage. Another view of paying extra toward the principal.
An Ambulance Screams By — Do You Feel Happy or Sad at Financial Samurai asks if readers had an “a-ha” moment that changed their way of looking at things. Sort of a glass half-full or half-empty scenario.
