It’s been awhile since I’ve posted “Links to Love”. Here are some of the better links floating around out there:
JD does a great job at pointing out how so many of us fall victim to useless spending. I especially like the idea he mentions to force yourself to put 10% of your purchases in a savings account. Great idea!!
Suprisingly stocks return a much better value over the long haul. This reinforces my belief that you shouldn’t chase one particular method of investing. I’m putting money both in to real estate and in to the market.
As if you didn’t have enough to worry about. Let the marketing onslaught begin. Cel phone companies are looking to increase their revenues by targeting younger and younger kids. Reminds me of the pharmaceutical industry targeting adults with their newly created “Adult ADD“. All in the name of revenue, my friend.
Who would have guessed that mortgage firms would begin offering aid to distressed homeowners. If you took a crazy loan out and aren’t sure how you are going to pay it back, you may want to check this out.
Credit unions are out educating young people about money. They have already educated more than 45,000 Michigan students. If you have a credit union in your area, chances are you can use it. Check out their rates and fees. I bet they beat the big banks because they don’t make a profit~
