Weekend Roundup for May 12, 2008

by Kevin on May 12, 2008


  • Pinching Copper has a hilarious entry on “What GTA IV Taught Me About Personal Finance.” I’ve seen it all when you can compare a video game to personal finance, but it does make sense… just think in any game you’ve ever played, there is no “credit” (at least usually) that you can use to buy upgrades or weapons. You have $X and you can only spend $X.
  • Saving Savy thinks The Little Things Make a Big Difference.
  • Master Your Card tells us about the first biometric credit card and wants to know what we think. I think it’s kind of scary. I don’t know if I would trust the credit card networks with my biometric data…
  • Living Almost Large shares a sad story about a med student just piling on extra debt because really, it doesn’t matter.
  • Girls Just Wanna Have Funds asks how we are all coping with increasing gas prices. To be honest, we haven’t changed much because we weren’t overspending to begin with.


Yesterday was Mother’s Day, so if you haven’t already, reach out to your Mom and thank her! You’re already in deep trouble if you forgot, but at least try to make up for it.

Thanks for the mention, and congrats on the income – I always say that every dollar earned from “not your primary job” is sweeter than $10 earned from your job!
