It’s been a very busy week traveling the country teaching Life Lessons of Personal Finance. Just now, I just had the opportunity to read this week’s Carnival of Personal Finance which, as always, has lots of fun postings. While it was great to see that the host, BankerGirl, loved my analogy between football and savings, it’s always a challenge for me to pick just one other article to recommend to you.
But I got it done.
Read Squawkfox’s 50 Ways to Save $1,000 a Year. There’s a lot of great ideas and many of them will allow you to live fiscally responsibily without being cheap. As you know, that’s always an important consideration because they are not the same thing. Just the other day, I listed five ways in which I am fiscally responsible and five other ways I am not cheap. It’s a fun little exercise you might wish to challenge yourself with.
