It’s Friday once again! Time is flying. Even yesterday when I needed to hold my mouth closed on a mold for a crown at my dentist appointment and the gal told me I had to keep my teeth together for four and a half minutes, THAT time flew by. It was uncomfortable and I was not happy about having one of my molars ground down to a stump. You would think time would have dragged.
Here are a few posts I enjoyed this week.
- Another post on managing time more wisely, I enjoyed reading Kristia’s rendition Are You Wasting Time and Preventing Yourself From Your Million Dollar Dream? at Family Balance Sheet. One thing in particular that she mentioned from the article she’d read was how wealthy women used a grocery delivery service before they made their millions. We live in an area too rural for home delivery of anything, but sometimes I think it would be a nice idea to look into. Especially if it was only $10!
- Invest It Wisely posts a warning to other bloggers about a new type of scam directed to bloggers in The “Guest Post” : A Deceptive Advertising Trick.
- Another warning, this time from Len Penzo with Priceline Users Be Careful: Name the Wrong Price and You May Go To Jail apparently he bid too low and they locked him out for 24 hours. I’ve never used one of these places, but I know a bit more about them now!
- OUCH, OUCH, OUCH. I would have been freaked out to find my car missing like that! Click over and read When Being Cheap Upfront Costs Big Bucks in the End at Frugal Confessions.
- Joe Plemon answers a few questions with his recent post Social Security Strategies for Married Couples at Personal Finance by the Book. I’ve known a few elderly couples that were “living in sin” so that their Social Security wasn’t affected, but I thought only one person would be eligible. Joe cleared that up – the second person would get 50% of what they were eligible to draw.
