Week in Review: The Inaugural Edition

by Kay Lynn


This is the first of what I plan on being a weekly event.  There is a lot of wonderful insight and information available in the blog world.    I will select five of my favorite articles written by fellow personal finance or frugal bloggers.

1.  Dave Ramsey’s Baby Steps. Patrick at Military Finance Network discusses the baby steps I’ve mentioned learning at Financial Peace University.

2. Lending Club-My review of Social Lending. This is the first detailed article I have read about social lending although I have read about the concept previously. Matt Jabs at Debt Free Adventure inspired me to give investing a try with the free $50 promotion offer. I’ll post the results in the future.

3.What Works for Me-Combining our Finances. I selected this article for two reasons. First is because the author, NCN at No Credit Needed, discusses combining family finances. Mr. Boomer and I will probably do that at some point as we prepare for retirement. Second, he discusses the envelope system he uses to manage money which is something I started doing based on Dave Ramsey’s course.

4. Is Cash Dead? Ten Places You’ll Still Need Cash. I thought this was an interesting topic although I’m not ready to give up the green. A couple of other places I thought of that requires cash include garage sales and foreign countries that use dollars (Mexico, Bahamas, etc.).

5. Mrs. Micah’s Second Blogiversary. Congratulations to Mrs. Micah at Finance for a Freelance Life on reaching the milestone of two years with her blog. That’s inspiring to all and especially beginners like yours truly.

I hope you found the content of these posts interesting.  Have a great week!

How is your LC investing working out so far?

Hi Matt,

I haven’t added any of my own money yet, but have earned 22 cents in interest on the free $50. This is definitely something I plan to use in my ongoing financial plan.
