Weekend Roundup for June 16, 2008

by Kevin on June 16, 2008

I’ve been rather busy the past few days and posting has slowed down. I’m working to get some articles built back up so content is more consistent. Now, for a few quick links from the past week.


  • Our Fourpence Worth ponders if going to bed early is linked to financial wellness. If I could get consistent sleep all of the time, I know I would feel better. When I feel better, I am more productive. I can see the connection.
  • Master Your Card wants to know what age is too young to have a credit card. I think under 16 is inappropriate. I think kids should have credit cards only when they can pay them off themselves. I think the limits should be extremely low, and parents should have the ability to set the limit. Some parents may be comfortable with a $1,000 limit, others may want $100.


  • The third anniversary of the Carnival of Personal Finance is up at Consumerism Commentary.
  • Get Rich Slowly thinks we should all pay ourselves first. I think people that don’t understand money management should pay themselves first. It forces you to save and only spend what is left. However, if you do have an understanding of money, then I think saving at the end of the month is fine, too. For the record, we save at the end of the month.
  • Debt Kid thinks we can eat well and also not spend a lot of money. I agree wholeheartedly.

Thanks, and tomorrow we’ll talk about getting toothpaste on the cheap (again!).
