July 19, 2008

ANNOUNCEMENT: If you haven’t signed up for AFM’s latest giveaway, you can do so here.

It’s time for another roundup. Here’s some interesting posts I found from the MoneyBlogNetwork and other blogs I follow:

NCN explains how having a plan allows him to enjoy spending money.

MBH writes about the pros and cons of giving Restaurant.com gift certificates as gifts.

JD shows you how to network your way to job security.

Wise Bread writes about the pros and cons of paying cash for a house. – This just doesn’t seem feasible to most people. Besides, if money is cheap, I’d use a mortgage and invest my money elsewhere.

FMF tells us how he and his wife save money on greeting cards.

Is your car on the most frequently stolen list that Nickel put together?

Meg’s in Paris and she has a rundown on what things cost in Paris these days.

Ron over at WisdomJournal has some AWESOME pictures from his family vacation to Yellowstone and Mt. Rushmore. – The pictures are kind of grainy but the scenery is incredible!

Jeremy has an excellent post on changing your risk tolerance based on a bear market. – Bad markets tend to make people run for the hills. That’s a mistake.

Trent has some ideas on how to make an expensive hobby more financially manageable.

The Finance Buff says: Embrace the Bear Market with Overbalancing.

And last but not least, the Digerati Life warns of the MPG Illusion.
