As always I try to bring in my roundup the more interesting articles and posts I’ve encountered over the past week or two.
From leading magazines:
- The Lure of Store Credit Cards, and the Hook @ NY Times – A fitting article for the holiday season.
- Page-turners @ The Economist – The best books of 2009
Carnival of Personal Finance #234 – Weirdest Toy Crazes Edition was hosted by Suburban Dollar. My post on The Dangers of Excess Frugality – Budgeting and Balanced Living was chosen as Editor’s Pick! Recognition always gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. Here are some of my favorite posts from the carnival:
- 4 Japanese Personal Finance Gripes @ Foreigner’s Finances – My first acquaintance with this blog and it’s a good one. The blog broadens our financial horizons, a very stimulating concept.
- 5 Little-Known Websites That Will Save You Time and Money When Booking Airfare Online @ Get Rich Slowly – One of those focused niche posts that bring real added value if you’re looking to save on airfare. Highly Recommended.
More from fellow personal financier bloggers:
