Weekend Reading and Blog Round-Up
I’m dying for it to start raining again in SoCal so our mountains will get some snow. My day job is pretty flexible, so I usually try and get up to the local mountains the day after it rains. Rain down here means snow up there and I found a great guy on Craigslist that gets me discounted lift tickets too, so it’s even better.
I’ve gotten some really good feedback and questions on my HSA articles so you can expect a couple more over the next few weeks. But today, I’m going to highlight articles from some of my favorite personal finance blogs around the web. I’ve categorized them too so feel free to read only the ones that sound interesting.
Cat gives the low down on how to find freelance work. She actually lives somewhere in the Caribbean, I don’t know where, but all those islands are about the same anyways, paradise
Harry(yes his name is also Harry!) tells his readers how he withdraws large amounts of money from his online bank fast. When I read this article on Monday, I actually went to the bank to try it but it was closed for MLK day.
This is the last article in a 13 part series about money by Pauline. 13 parts! Now that takes some dedication.
Good article about why health insurance premiums are going up. You already know how to fight back(hint: HSA!)
Leigh talks about her refinancing process and how much she saved. If you haven’t refinanced, stop being lazy and go do it and save yourself a ton of money.
Holly over at Club Thrifty talks about her new obsession with juicing. I also recently got the same obsession but I am making fruit/veggie smoothies…yum
I love food so I think it’s cool that Jason shares recipes once in a while on his blog. That monkey bread looks horribly unhealthy but I’m sure it tastes amazing.
I’ve tried caviar a couple times but I think it tastes pretty bad. It seems like more of an acquired taste though so I’m going to keep trying it. Liquid Independence talks about his first time eating caviar here.
John took the plunge and became an entrepreneur. I plan on doing the same some day too but for now I’m pretty happy where I’m at.
Jeremy has some good tips here about blogging. He’s given me a lot of great tips over the past year that have helped make this blog what it is.
