Friday Finance Followers – Happy Birthday Edition

Another week is in the books and today I close another chapter in my life as I turn 1 year older. This past year has seen a lot of changes in my life, I took on this blogging thing and I am expecting my second child. Both of these things are going to continue to demand more of my attention and oddly enough I look forward to the challenges of both. Without further ado here is my Roundup:

@prosperousfool had an article this week called  8 Things That Do Not Affect Your Credit Score. While some these things may not affect your credit score, they could affect you in other areas.  If you bounce a check it is logged in something called chexsystems, if you bounce to many you could be denied a checking account at every bank because of it.

@moolanomy explores Dave Ramsey and the Power of Behavioral Finance. I agree on the mathematics, and I definitely see how and why Ramsey’s plan is so successful. Everyone thrives on accomplishment and through his debt snowball method you achieve little victories that propel you toward success against larger debt.

@fcn had a post by @mattjabs entitled Borrowing From Big Banks – A Moral Issue? A great look at why big banks are just bad business. I am also indebted to several big banks like Citi, unfortunately it is going to be a while before I kick that bugger to the curb.

@FourPillars wrote Pocket Listings. I had never heard of these before but I am pretty sure they are straight shady. This is all the more reason to make sure you are using a realtor you can trust.

@centsiblelife explores Successful Saving Strategies. 5 ways you can succeed with saving. I must be successful because I do all 5 of these, woot!


The Carnivals

This week I hosted the Money Hacks Carnival here at Suburban Dollar, it was a lot of fun to put together and had some great posts, be sure to check it out. I also participated in a few, here they are:

Finally, I was an editor’s pick in The Carnival of Money Stories with my article on Justifying Your Spending
