I’ve been sick all weekend, so I haven’t felt much like writing. I have, however, found time to browse other personal finance web sites. Here are some of the best recent articles from around the Money Blog Network:
- Many GRS readers have asked me what I think of Mint. To be honest, I haven’t had time to take a look at it. Sasha at Consumerism Commentary loves it, though, and recently posted an extensive review of the online money management tool.
- No Credit Needed has a an illustrated look at the Debt Snowball. This is a great introduction to the technique I used to pay off my debt.
- JLP at All Financial Matters shares a preview of the 2008 Federal Income Tax brackets.
- Nickel recently picked up a smartphone, and this has prompted him to list five tips for managing your finances on the go.
- At Blueprint for Financial Prosperity, Jim shares 8 personal finance lessons he learned from Monopoly. I actually found this thought provoking — what would it be like to play Monopoly now that I’ve learned some hard lessons about money? Would my playing style have changed? I don’t know. I’m curious to find out.
- Free Money Finance says that you ought to ask for more money when you’re offered a job.
- The Mighty Bargain Hunter has some thoughts about the film Maxed Out, which he recently watched.
I still don’t feel very well, but I’m going to do my best to pull together a couple articles for the coming week. If you see a guest post Monday morning, you’ll know I decided sleep was more important!
