Well, this is my last weekly roundup as a 35 year old — I’ll be turning 36 over the weekend. Oh well, at least I’m still in my mid-30s… As for a birthday celebration, we’re headed out of town and will be spending the weekend at a nice hotel for a bit of family fun time. With that said, lets take a quick look at some of the posts that caught my eye over the past week…
Jim provided a list of four reasons you should get a payday loan. Don’t worry… It’s a Devil’s Advocate post.
MBH had some tips for buying someone out at a garage sale.
FMF talked about the best online brokers.
Henry talked about saving for college using a 529 (even though he doesn’t have kids yet).
Ben asked if real estate agents are worth the money.
Lazy Man talked about cultivating alternative streams of income.
Jeremy talked about being sure you understand the fine print of your loan documents.
SVB talked about improving property value by planting trees.
Sun talks about his saving and investing system.
Finally, Jonathan had a kidney stone and got to partake in his first ever trip to the emergency room. I can relate (and sympathize) because I went through the exact same thing a few years ago.
