A Week's Worth At PFBlog Network #3

Contributed by mm | April 18, 2005 7:22 AM PST

Personal Finance Bloggers' Network just wrapped up its third week with over 40 quality posts. Let's first welcome the 10th addition to our gold channel portfolio: Money Garden. Fg, the blogger behind this new gold channel blog, decided to "tend to my money the same way I would a small garden" -- as "a patient cultivator." Good name! Let's wish fg gives back lots of his tips from his ... gardening.

Personal Finance Resources

• Hate the skyrocketing gas price? Jim shares his handy tool: GasBuddy.
• ETFs, or Exchange Traded Funds, are great tools for average investors.
• Recog reviews why Citi is a godsend for smart personal finance managers.


Personal Finance Decisions

• Coincidentally or not, three bloggers in our small network are sharing their own rent vs buy struggle, and all of them are, more or less, concerned with the possible housing bubble. Don't miss:

Fg's Condo: To Buy or Not To Buy? That Is The Question,
Dr. D's Buying a House in a Bubble, and
Jim's That Damned Rent vs. Buy Question.

• Jim also shared his first house-hunting trip.
• Mrs. Money is taking actions to get a living will.
• MM decided to request a tax filing extension. Read the series: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.


Personal Finance Tips

• If you are still using Quicken 2000 or 2001, you might need an upgrade soon as Quicken will put a stop to key online features by 4/19. (Reported by Financial Cognition.)
• Dr. D discussed principal resident tax exemption in Canada.
• Try to teach your kid a thing? Throw in a buck.
• Are You a Desperate Housewife? Share some insight from Mrs. Money. (My wife loves this post!)
• Nathan advocates paper trading before you build out your real money portfolio.
• It is definitely worthwhile to fight your ticket.
• Some investment funds in your benefit plan may be private. Dr. D described them as "steamy."


Personal Finance Tabloids

• What do tax returns from the Whitehouse tell you about Bush and Cheney?
• Also on tax, what's your best deduction, ever?
• Mrs. Money is another TiVo lover. Check out how Tivo Saved Our Marriage.
• A used Toyota Prius can sell for more than a new Prius. How can it be?


Other Posts Worth Reading

• Why the 3%+ interest you earn from these online banks is still less than 0.
