I love those Chick-fil-a cows, I don’t know why but they have it right. Have you ever looked at the price difference between a steak and a chicken breast? Seriously it is freaking ridiculous. Isn’t there a lot more meat on a cow? My wife is not a red meat person so we don’t really eat a lot of steak around here. The few times we do buy beef I cringe at the cost. Listen to those Chick-fil-a cows and eat more Chikin. If you don’t really know what Chick-Fil-A is check out this video.
Let’s check out this weeks links from the personal finance blogosphere, some weeks I have to beg for posts, this week I had to weed them down. Thanks to everyone who submitted to be included, hey there is always next Friday. I had a first this week, someone submitted two posts that weren’t their own, I loved this selfless act that got me two great posts to link to.
@joetaxpayerblog submitted Bakers aptly titled post “Bend over and I’ll show you where you can stick your rewards” where I left a comment about some $20k pots I own. Joe also submitted a post by Mrs. Micah where she asks “Why care about debt freedom?”
@MyLifeROI who has been at this about as long as me, although not surprisingly more successful went all inspirational on me with a great post “A Guide to Greatness”. I want to be great, and this was a great post.
@BSimple wants things to be simplified, but here is a list of reasons people give for not simplifying their finances. People make excuses for everything it seems. Even those things that might help them improve their financial situation.
@Green_Panda ran a guest post this week covering what comic book characters taught about finance. I am not a comic book guy, I know someone who, who knows someone who is pretty famous for comics, but that is as close as I get. Great illustrations, no pun intended, for handling finances though.
