If you’re new to learning about personal finance or you spend most of your time on the internet shopping or playing games, I encourage you to check out all of the great personal finance blogs around the internet. There are hundreds, maybe even thousands, so that’s why I like to highlight some of the ones that I read and stay involved in on a regular basis.
- Bargaineering explains how you can save money by canceling your cable TV. I really like this idea, and it’s becoming a lot easier with internet TV like Hulu and a-la-carte buying on iTunes, but for a sports guy like me, I want access to live football and basketball games.
- Here’s a guest article on Consumerism Commentary about the lifestyle creep and the self-employed. This article caught my eye, because I am currently starting up an internet marketing company with a partner, and even though all of the basic are set up, we are still learning every day about how to run a small business.
- Frugal Dad has a great article about how to set up a personal finance firewall and protect your cash assets from online fraudulent activity.
- Kiplinger’s Magazine has ten ways to fatten your wallet on Black Friday. Read this article to get geared up for Black Friday, and I will also get you ready for the big shopping season next week.
- Generation X Finance encourages us to make year-end tax moves now to lessen your tax burden for 2009.
- Wisebread has a good article about dream jobs and day jobs. I have a strong passion for helping people helping people make their dream job become a reality. It can’t happen overnight, and many people get discouraged too quickly. Transitioning to work you love takes time and preparation.
Check back this week for tips on shopping, black friday, how to find great deals, and negotiate great deals. I’ll also explain how my wife and I keep Christmas spending to a minimum.
