Round Up

Weekly Personal Finance Blog RoundUp – 11/9/2012

There are so many great personal finance blogs out there that it can be hard to look at them all.  I try very hard every Friday to include some of the best articles and posts that I can find around the blog-o-sphere.  I might not get every great article, but I always will scour the web for what is the best of the best in regards to saving, debt, investing, credit cards, and all of the other great personal finance topics.

This week has been particularly crazy for myself.  The election is finally over and I don’t know what to do without all of the election ads on the television, radio, and web.  I don’t miss them by any means, but now I don’t even turn my television on because I don’t want to hear, “and I approve this message”.  I have made great strides this week in growing Debt Roundup, which is always a good thing.  I have made some new friends with pf bloggers, and I decided to join the Yakezie Challenge.  I also got added to the blogger map by  If things continue like this week, then I will not complain.

On the sour note, I was in a car accident (not at fault) back in October and I just found out that the insurance company might total my car.  If this happens, then I only have a few weeks to search and purchase another car before my son is born in mid December.  Talk about cutting it close!  My savings account is not going to like the month of December.

Here are the articles and blog posts that I found interesting this week, in no particular order.  Hope you enjoy this weeks roundup.

These Tools Changed My Financial Life

I use a lot of resources to make sure my financial life is in order. The tool and services I recommend have helped me be more efficient with my money and I'm sure they can help you as well.  Take some time to see if any of these resources can change your finances for the better!

I'm a business owner, blogger, father, and husband. I used credit cards too much and found myself in over $50,000 in debt. I paid it off, started this blog, and my financial life has changed. I now talk about fighting debt and growing wealth here. I run a blog management company, along with another blog. It is Empowered Shopper, which helps people get information about products they want to buy. You can also check out Eyes on the Dollar, which is a great blog that I co-own.

    Despite the car accident, I think your week ended good though. The campaign is finally over and it seems nothing has changed yet. Thanks for those blog sites you’ve recommended. I’d certainly visit them one of these days. I need more positive views regarding financial matters to start the year next year. Keep on writing more entries.
