Welcome to this weeks roundup! There were plenty of great articles this week around the PF Blogosphere. Last week I posted infrequently and I apologize for that. I hope to get a full week of articles done today and you can expect to see my Q&A with Deena Katz (the top financial planner) on Wednesday. She has responded to my questions and I am excited for you all to read it. Anyway, enjoy these great reads!
Ben at Trees Full of Money witnessed a credit card fiasco at a Target checkout counter. Needless to say, this article really made me angry for some reason. You can see my response in the comments of his post.
Trent at The Simple Dollar thinks that most time management is rubbish. Head over there to see the ten things that work best for him.
Pinyo at Moolanomy has some extra income ideas for college students and recent graduates. I especially like the one on selling class notes. I wish I would have thought of that when I was in school!
Pete at Bible Money Matters wants to know if you are emotionally invested in your credit card.
Frugal Dad talks about the new Discover card for teens that creates bad habits.
I hope you enjoyed these great posts! I look forward to your comments this week!
It’s been a few weeks since my last roundup. What can I say, I’ve been pretty busy!
Keep an eye out for a new feature this coming week. I will be posting a “Saturday Sneak-Peak” each week where I will be visiting a new/upcoming blog on personal finance. I will give you a brief overview of what I found on the site and you will be introduced to the author with a few answers to my questions. You can then visit the site and make your own conclusion. Be sure to check it out this Saturday! Anyway, off to the roundup!

Well, Valentine’s day has passed. What did you and your significant other do? Did you do something frugal? Did you go all out? Did you spend your stimulus money already? We decided to do the responsible thing and not spend much money on each other. However, tonight we are attending one of the best seafood restaurants in the area. We feel that it is OK to spend some money every once and awhile or else we would just go insane. Anyway, I hope you had a great Valentine’s and please enjoy the holiday on Monday! Unfortunately, I have to work. 🙁
Here are some great reads I found this week. Please be sure to check them out!
