@GrlRedBalloon In the Red: Forget retirement, grandpa

This is a very sad story about Red’s grandparents and debt. I just said “wow” after reading it. That’s all I really have to say. Go read it and you’ll see what I mean.

@ Car Negotiation Coach Assigned Reading-The Secrets of Power Negotiating

In about a year I plan on getting another vehicle. This post goes a little bit into the book “The Secrets of Power Negotiating”. I’m going to add it to my reading list and hopefully it will help me out in my negotiating skills.

@DividendMonk Investing Thesis

This is a great post that I plan to follow when I get into investing. It has great ideas about what to ask yourself before you decide to invest in a company.

@FinancialSamura Being Overly Content Can Be Detrimental To Your Career

Sam wrote a great post about loyalty and being content with your employer. People are a creature of habit, so staying in your job for to long could make it harder for you to leave for a better opportunity. That’s not really a good thing. Especially, as Sam points out, when your employer could let you go on a whim, no matter how long you’ve been there.

@CanadianFinance How Small Savings Can Make A Big Difference

Tom does a great job of showing, through his real life situation, how you can save on monthly expenses and how it can add up.

@prairieecothrif I’m A Loser! Are You?

Miss T. goes over why the people in “The Biggest Loser” are successful. These different things can be used in all sorts of life situations.

@MoneyCrush The One Skill Anyone Can Learn to Make (and Save) More Money

I’m not going to tell you the skill because I want you to click over and read it. I can say that the post delivers on what the title promises.

@danielpacker Saving Money on Car Insurance is Easy!

I’ve been with the same car insurance for several years. I should really start to look around and see if anywhere else is cheaper. I’ll be using these tips to help me get a lower rate.

@flexo Pet Ownership: A Financial and Emotional Responsibility

I’m a fan of owning pets, but I do agree that if it comes down to just being able to support myself or my pet, I will always choose me. Flexo gives a great argument as to why you shouldn’t keep a pet if all you can afford is love.
