Stadium LightsI’d first like to thank everyone for telling me what you want me t write about. Tune over the next couple of weeks and I’ll be making posts about those topics. If you have anything else you want me to write about feel free to contact me.

This week there are a few more articles than the previous weeks, so let’s get on with the likes:

@MoneyCrush Do It Now

This article is about stop researching and start doing. If you keep looking into something but never start it, you’re just wasting your time. I do this with my programming hobby. I read and read but never start. The one thing I did jump into is this blog. If you haven’t taken the plunge yet, do it now.

@MoneyFunk Would you take a Lottery Lump Sum Payout?

I know I had a lot of financial problems in my early 20’s and I fixed them by doing these goals. So I’m sure there are some females out there that could be helped out with this info.

@MoneyNing Cash: The Greatest Bargaining Tool

This a great post on the power that cash has on getting discounts. Whenever I make big purchases I plan on using cash so I can get a discount. When companies run a debit or credit card they are charged about 1-3% so you can at least get that much off. Cash is King.

@SingleGuyMoney Pros and Cons of Being a Homeowner

I plan on renting until I get to the point where I’m ready to have kids because I believe it’s the best option to save money. There are just so many extra expenses that come with a house that I see no reason for me to own one until I feel like I need the environment a house brings.

  • Oh, I need to go read the BofA Collector tells you how not to be a deadbeat (cuz I really dislike them – so it should be interesting).

    Thanks for the link up. So many great posts in the blogosphere!
