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

Here’s a quick look at some articles that caught my eye over the past week:

JLP talked about retirement risks.

Jim talked about when frugality is a fault.

Flexo is having trouble with his TIAA-CREF SEP-IRA.

FMF talked about the best place to save on books. But beware, it’s based on an article from Consumer Reports… And we all know how reliable Consumer Reports has been in recent weeks…

MBH talked about retail jobs being replaced by machines.

MyRetirementBlog talked about Roth IRAs vs. Traditional IRAs.

JD talks about how to buy one house while selling another. In our case, this turned out to be easy… We put out house on the market, went out of town to look for a new house, found what we wanted, got an offer we liked, and bought and sold in under six days.

Jeffrey talks about securing your stuff in a ‘skid mark’ safe. Nasty, but apparently effective.

Finally, MapGirl has an interesting post on who has more delinquents — the NFL or the NBA. Click through. The answer might surprise you!

  3. Who cares? It’s still funny (and probably not that far from the truth).
