A look at five interesting personal finance posts from other bloggers around the web. This week: using mouthwash in places other than your mouth, helping the IRS, the pros and cons of prepaid cards and barbecue grills, and Best Buy misbehaves.
[Wise Bread] I love this website because it comes up with some completely off-the-wall – but logical – ways to save money. Like using mouthwash to cure nail fungus and even as a deodorant.
[The Simple Dollar] What I like about this blog is that it sometimes offers advice not only to us but to the government. Here are five good tips for the IRS – so they can help us taxpayers have an easier time of it.
[Dough Roller] The answer to this question is mostly “no,” but there are some interesting loopholes.
[The Consumerist] I’m usually a patient man, but this personal tale just made me mad as hell. First, Best Buy gets caught breaking the law; then, it bans the woman who reported them. Awful.
