Weekly Personal Finance Blog RoundUp – 12/7/2012

Happy Friday everyone.  I hope you all paid down some debts and saved some money this week.  I also hope that the first week of December treated you well.  I am still getting pulled in all directions at work, but it’s to be expected during the holiday season.  I am also another week closer to the expected arrival of baby debt wrangler.  Who knows when he will come, but my wife sure hopes it is soon!  This week has flown by, but I have still kept quite busy behind the scenes here at Debt Roundup.  This should also be a great week for a roundup as I have come across a few more blogs and am following more people.  So, here we go and I hope you enjoy this week’s roundup!

Everyone seems to enjoy this list and it is only growing.  I added a few more blogs this week and I have more on the list to add this weekend.  I am a little behind on adding the screenshots of the newly added blogs, but I will catch those up this weekend.  Here are the links to both the list and the blog randomizer.

About Grayson Bell

I am an average Joe, who built up over $50,000 worth of credit card debt and had to learn how to break it back down. It took 4 years of learning budgets, secrets, and many other personal finance tricks in order to cut the debt to $0. Now, I push to teach others not only how to get out of debt, but how to use credit wisely and how to start growing their wealth. You can view my other site, Sprout Wealth for ways to grow your money. I am also a freelance personal finance writer who provides staff writing and ghost writing services.

  3. Thanks so much for the mention Grayson! I can relate to being pulled in many ways with work. Our crazy busy time should die down in the next week or so and then it’ll be light for us until the first few weeks of the New Year, which will be nice. Have a great weekend!
