From My Reader: Personal Finance at KMull.com

“From My Reader” is a weekly series, highlighting one of over 30 blogs that I track using Google Reader. This week, I’d like to highlight one of the smaller blogs I subscribe to – the personal finance blog at KMull.com, which is still trying to find its wings. But that’s okay – you could say […]

Money Resources for Kids and Parents

Over at Get Rich Slowly, J.D. is celebrating Financial Literacy Month. He wants to know if anyone has any financial literacy resources to share, and actually, I do! The Mint is a financial resource for kids, teens, parents and teachers. The “Kids” section (which is aimed at both kids and teens) offers tons of information, on earning, […]

From My Reader: StopBuyingCrap.com

“From My Reader” is a weekly series, highlighting one of over 30 blogs that I track using Google Reader. Go on, admit it – you buy crap, don’t you? Stuff that you look at a month later and go “why did I put that thing on my credit card to wrack up interest and ruin […]

From My Reader: I Will Teach You To Be Rich

“From My Reader” is a weekly series, highlighting one of over 30 blogs that I track using Google Reader. I Will Teach You To Be Rich by Ramit Sethi is the personal finance blog that got me interested in personal finance blogs, so I hold it very close to my heart. Ramit’s writings are full of no-nonsense, […]

Netflix vs. Blockbuster Online – The Battle Continues

The war over direct-to-mail DVD rentals continues, even in my own house. My mother has both Blockbuster Online* and Netflix* this month, and she’s torn over which one to keep. On the one hand, she can easily return her Blockbuster DVDs to one of their physical stores, and come home with even more movies – […]

Review: The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom

Yep, I’ve been reading a lot of Suze Orman lately. It’s not entirely on purpose, however. This particular book, The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom, I read because it was free. Not even “trip to the library” free, but free free. It was sitting on the bookshelf outside my bedroom door – my mother had […]

The Suze Orman Show

I stayed over at my sister’s house last night after baby-sitting her two-year-old daughter (I didn’t get paid for it, but I did get some free macaroni-and-cheese, so I call it a win), and after everyone went to bed, I stayed up real late, enjoying their cable television. This was how I was able to […]

Netflix vs. Blockbuster Online

The debate rages ever on. Almost everyone I know is signed up for one service or the other. Strangely, no one seems to have a really good reason for their choices. My mom has Netflix* “because.” My friends have Blockbuster because they got a four-week free trial, rather than the usual two weeks. My brother […]

Review: The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous & Broke

I finished Suze Orman’s book “The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous & Broke” last night (herein referred to as YF&B). I’d like to give my hopefully-better-than-lackluster review of it. Basically, the book goes through all of the questions and assumptions a 20-30 something might have about money when they’re just starting to take an […]
