Friday Finance Followers – Secret Project Edition

Wow, where did this past week go? I had a sick child for two days so I have been taking care of him and now here I am on Friday with too much to do and not enough time. To add to it I have decided to start running again and take on a second blog, I really think I have lost my mind. Either way, the second site is my secret project, if you can find it before Monday let me know what you think, I will make a twitter announcement on Monday about the new site, it isn’t related to finance at all so I won’t discuss much here at all other than to give it a shameless link to for SEO and such. This post isn’t about me though so lets get on with the best of the week submitted by my Twitter faithful:

@moneyhighway had a guest post covering 8 Vital Money Lessons to Teach Your Children. We, myself included, as a society need to do more to ensure our children are properly educated on how to deal with their personal finances. These are some great tips to get you started.

@christianpf postulates on The Art of Thrift Store Shopping. I don’t know if it is so much an art as it is luck but you can definitely find some great deals shopping at both thrift and second hand stores.

@jasontopp asks a great question with Should You Give Money to a Homeless Person? I do not, as a matter of principal, give money to the homeless. One clever idea I have seen implemented was in Chattanooga, TN. They have these coin deposit spots where you can give your money to an organization that assists the homeless. They are trying to cut down on direct panhandling.

@manvsdebt wrote a post with this eye-catching title “The Power of Resourcefulness – a Guide to Peeing in the Shower“ You had me at peeing, but seriously though I agree with his thoughts on resourcefulness, and I may even pee in the shower tomorrow morning… wow that just sounds kinda gross.

@mattjabs with Debt Free Adventure wrote “Debt Reduction – Emergency Fund Savings – The Balanced 75/25 Method“



This past week I only participated in the Money Hacks Carnival hosted at Moolanomy. It paid off though because I was an editors pick with my article Young Broke People – A Fundamental Difference in Thought

Thanks for including my post! I had not heard of the coin slots idea. Interesting.
