Of all the articles in this week’s Carnival of Personal Finance, I most enjoyed Moneymonk’s Why American’s Don’t Save. Perhaps because it reminded me of a post I wrote long ago, Top 10 Excuses For Not Saving, but also because it was an excellent reminder of being realistic about the future.

Fact 1:  It won’t be easier to save in the future.

Fact 2: Tomorrow is promised to no one.

The solution is, and has always been, living in balance.

I’ve found that my various ever-increasing subscription lists have minimal overlap.  It’s exciting to see the numbers grow, of course, but I haven’t done a great job in informing everyone what’s available from me elsewhere. Here’s where you can get financial education from Total Candor and I – choose your favorite format(s). Cancel

  • The Total Candor free monthly newsletter has some of the blog’s best articles of the month, links to additional media, and deals/discounts on Total Candor products.  You can sign-up for the newsletter here.
  • You might not know: I wrote a book called Beyond Paycheck to Paycheck.  It’s the number one customer-rated book on Amazon.com’s Money Management for Young People list.  You can buy it from Amazon, or buy it directly from Total Candor (and have it autographed).  It’s great resource for all ages and makes a terrific graduation gift (Northwestern University apparently agreed; they provided a copy to every member of the Class of 2009).
  • I am also an expert for LifeTuner.org, a new site geared to young people and brought to you by the non-profit AARP.

Anywhere I’m missing that I should be (or I forgot to put on this list?)
