A look at five interesting personal finance posts from other bloggers around the web. This week: Important questions, single-mom finances, single-car households, quick furniture fixes, and why you should buy lemons.
[Peter Bregman] I was expecting the standard and vague what-do-I-really-want-out-of-life kind of questions. Instead these are intriguing, and so are Bregman’s story behind them: “What is the year about?” “What is the day about?” “What is the moment about?”
[Daily Worth] I’m a single guy, not a single mom. But sometimes a personal story about personal finance can move you as much as teach you. Read about Kerry.
[MyDollar Plan] Besides the obvious (one less insurance premium and less repair bills) there are some advantages to a one-car family that have nothing to do with the car.
[The Dollar Stretcher] I’ve read (and written) stories about car repair and home repair, but never furniture repair. There are detailed websites on the topic, but this post sums it all up perfectly for beginners.
[Wisebread] The term “buying a lemon” usually isn’t a good thing. Buying 25 lemons might be. Sure, they can eliminate odors. But they can also do a lot more.
