Money Reasons Weekly Cache 2010, June 13
This week we went to our local Drive-In Theater! The drive in experience was great (as usually), but the movie was just so-so… Life is often like that, sometimes you have to make the best of an experience even when it’s not perfect! My kids still enjoyed the movie, and if they are happy, I’m happy!
My Favorite Reads of the Week:
Budgeting in the Fun Stuff: Fit in a Fun Friday – Ghost Stories – I liked this post because of the great potential for having a sleep over with old friends! I think Crystal is on to a great idea!
Sweating the Big Stuff: Surviving the Rags to Get to the Riches – Interesting information about the jobs that stars did before they become rich and famous, also very good tip on staying positive and inspirational.
Little House In The Valley: Who are the Real “Joneses?” – Little House finished the book “The Millionaire Next Door” and gives her revies. But even more importantly, LH explains where the saying “Keeping Up the the Joneses” comes from. I learned something new for that day!!!
Wealth Pilgrim: IRA Beneficiary Rules You Need To Know But Don’t – Definitely something that everybody should know! In addition, perhaps even review your 401K beneficiaries too (I’m not sure if that applies or not, but you should play it safe!).
Free From Broke: When You Save Are You Really Saving? – This post actually got me to realize that the commercial media really does brainwash us into thinking we are saving money on purchases. People say they save money on an item, but “Saving Money” means putting it in the bank, so who can saving be spending?
Well Heeled Blog: 5 Little Habits Now That Can Save You Big Money Later – These are some great tips! My grandfather violated 2 of the (sunscreen and smoke), and later got both skin and lung cancer! So not only will it save you money, it may save your life! She also has: Sushi: An Expensive Culinary Habit – What can I say! I love spicy Sushi!
Financial Samurai & The Amateur Financier: In the post “Only The Poor or Super Rich Say, “Money Can’t Buy Happiness”“, Sam convinced me that: Money really can happiness, and Roger with “Can Money Not Really Buy Happiness” add a lot of value and reference links to back Sam’s idea. Both are great reads! Start with Sam’s post first to discover what go the wheel rolling on the evolution of this point, then check out Roger’s post for more great info!
My Favorite Post from Money Reasons This Week:
The Rich Employee at McDonalds – I blog about Clark Kent, and his unusual attitude towards working at McDonalds. I also talk about this unforseen benefits!
Carnivals that I’m in:
This week was full of things I learned, the biggest being the origins of the saying “Keeping up with the Joneses”! Learning new things (even simple ones) always makes for a good week!
I’m going to conclude this day by watching “The Majestic” staring Jim Carey! It’s a pretty good movie.
