This week’s carnival of personal finance is hosted by Canadian Dream: Free at 45. Featuring the best of recent personal finance postings in the blogosphere, the carnival featured my recent post My Car is Driving Me Nuts. If you haven’t checked that one out, go ahead. It’s decent for a good laugh – especially from one of the comments, and I’d love to hear your opinion.
One of the most useful posts I’ve seen recently is from Living the cheap life. You already know I’m not a fan of living cheaply; rather, I prefer fiscally responsibility – big difference. But the truth is that the strategy discussed in this blog posting (getting free wireless access as you travel) isn’t a cheap one at all. Cheap would be depriving yourself of the Internet while you travel, or finding a painfully slow dial-up connection for 99 cents a month. Nope, Living the cheap life gives you a few solid ways to get access while traveling — for nothing. That’s fiscally responsible in my book!
Personally, I hate paying the hotel charges for Internet access and often find a way around them. This post gave me a few new good ideas – hope it does for you too.
