Week in Review: Spring Edition

by Kay Lynn


Spring is here and boy do my allergies know it!  Did you have a fun St. Patrick’s day?  A lot of people dressed in green, but no one brought green bagels in the office.  I’ll have to do that next year.

You might remember that I was a sponsor at Enemy of Debt’s March challenge.  Congratulations to Julie who won a copy of Dave Ramsey’s The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness book.

Lastly, please enter the giveaway for a $25 Kroger gift card.  The drawing will be held on March 27th and the odds are pretty good right now!

Now on my favorite personal finance articles this week.

Editor’s Picks

 @ Money Help for Christians reminds us not to fall into the trap of the 5 Lies of Efficiency and Productivity.

I usually try to pick only one article per site, but had to go with two from Money Ning this week.  The first reminds us that Money Isn’t Just for Hoarding – It’s for Spending Too. Read how one week-old Sara has already taught her dad about personal finance.

Ever wonder when is the best time to buy something? @ Gather Little by Little gives us a chart of  the best months to buy goods.

My birthday is coming up and when someone asks me what I want it’s hard to think of something (even though I want way too much!).  @ Budgets are Sexy reminds us to Always Have a Wish List Handy.

Do you want to work from home? @Money Crashers has5 Real Ways to Make Money from Home.

Working from home might not be all it’s cracked up to be however. @ Suburban Dollar asks if You Are Sure You want to Be Your Own Boss?

When you buy any type of appliance warranties are not being offer for sale. @Len Penzo Dot Com gives us a decision tree to use that he bills as the definitive extended warranty litmus test.

Hey Bucksome,

Thanks for including Money Crashers in your list! Spring is finally here – nice sunshine for a bit, but then it started snowing here in Chicago shortly after. What a tease.

Hi Gyutae, My family in the midwest had snow as well. I guess that’s why Spring weather is unpredictable!
