A Week's Worth At PFBlog Network #26

Contributed by mm | October 4, 2005 6:58 AM PST

Woo, we are having a particularly strong lineup this week. Our bloggers are covering almost every corner of personal finance. You will read credit card, new car purchase, real estate, retirement planning, tax planning, and many other things. It is actually pretty hard to pick up the best from the 61 entries -- each and everyone is worth the time -- but the following demonstrates the spirit of personal finance blogging the best. Enjoy!


Bloggers' Personal Stories


• Nickel finished his new car acquisition with a twist. Some discussion of car buying mistakes too.
• Jim shared some personal observation about buying counterfeit merchandises.
• MM finally decided to sell the house for peace of mind. Wait to see the FSBO experience this week!
• 1stMill is publishing his quarter fund review: international fund, bond fund and balance fund.


Personal Finance News and Resources

• 1stMill is publishing a new series of essential retirement saving planning. Take a look:

I. Can my retirement plan stand the test of time?
II. 42 more years of rising expenses (it's not a pretty sight)
III. My current plan passes by a wide margin
IV. Whats the max I can safely spend each year?
V. What happens if I assume more market risk?

• FMF is publishing a monthly breakdown of each personal finance blogger's net worth report, and check out his compilation of readers' feedback. Good read!
EmigrantDirect is paying 4.0% APY interest for its savings account now! Plus, it will soon launch a credit card business -- it must have a problem to effectively use the cashpile its savings business is amassing.
• MM is arguing that double taxation for corporate investors are not that bad -- at least for small business owners.


Personal Finance Tips

• Great post about misguided fears: should we worry about identity theft and dying young?
• Again, Flexo is complaining that Citi credit card's online payment is trcky. He did mention a good improvement though: now you can schedule payment in advance.
• The single most important advice for your 401(k) program: don't pass up free money.
• It is never too early to start financial planning, and here are the tips for the young unmarried couples.
Should you drive a hybrid? It may not be cost effective but it may be worth trying too.
• Gas saving myst: will rolling down windows save fuel?
• Six tips on spending, and simple living
