Bank Deal: Earn 1.00% APY on an FDIC-insured savings account at Barclays.


Here’s a quick look at some of the personal finance articles that caught my eye over the past week…

MBH is ‘glass half empty’ kind of guy — or at least he was this week when talking about the financial future.

FMF talks about turning a hobby into an income.

Flexo has a couple of interesting pieces on what sort of income you have to report to the IRS (short answer: pretty much everything, no matter how illegally you earned it).

Jim thinks college students should get a credit card.

JLP is talking about how to help your friends get their financial act together — even when they don’t ask for your help!

NCN is keeping track of how much stuff he uses in a year. Pretty interesting, although I’d imagine it would be hard to keep this up for an entire year.

MyRetirementBlog reminds us to specify whether our IRA contributions between now and April15th should count as 2006 or 2007 contributions.

MyTwoDollars has a list of 66 ways to save money.

Finally, Jeffrey has some tips for extending the life of your razors. I’m really curious about whether or not the little gadget that he highlighted works as advertised.
