I read a number of great articles this week, and I would like to share them with you. But first let me announce that the Yakezie Personal Finance network that I’m a part of, now has at least 6 “member posts” on the  official website.

As what is fast becoming the custom, I’m naming my roundup after my favorite article of the week.

So, here are a few posts from the Yakezie network:

Darwin’s Money discusses 5 Ways Obama is Wrecking the US Economy. This is a thought-provoking, well-researched article, and even the comments are good.

Sam @ Financial Samurai wrote about the $300 Million “A” Yacht owned by a Russian Billionaire. After you read this make sure you leave a comment discussing what you would do if you had that kind of money (mine was pretty boring).

Kevin @ Financial Poor discusses an important economic concept in “Cost VS Value- Three Strategies for Success“. Understanding this is a key to financial success.

Miranda Marquit @ Peak Personal Finance tells us 5 things we should understand about social security. Hopefully, after reading this you will be motivated to take your retirement into your own hands!

Joe Plemon @ Personal Finance by the Book teaches us how to successfully budget for an irregular income. This is a must-read for anyone who owns a small business or works on commission!

Joe also had Joy Paley write a guest post discussing what health care reform means for health care workers’ salaries. This is a good post that provides an alternative look into the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).

Crystal @ Budgeting in the Fun Stuff had Sandy L from First Gen American discuss her college savings plan, look out for #1. I am definitely in favor of moving “saving for college” down in the financial priority list.

Jeff @ Sustainable Life Blog asks the great question “How much fun should you have while in debt?“. We must remember that personal finance is “personal” and this answer will be different for everyone.

Evan @ My Journey to Millions asks “What do you Think of Sure ‘Investments’ Articles?“. Many articles that claim to give a list of surefire tips usually don’t live up to their promise!

Kay Lynn @ Bucksome Boomer writes about finding money and using it to pay down debt. It takes a lot of discipline to do this – most of us would just spend it because it’s “found money”.

Car Negotiation Coach explains to us how not to negotiate when buying a car. New technology now allows for new methods.

Paul Williams @ Provident Plan continues his series on the practical applications of contentment by looking at how it should remove fear.

Jacob @ Early Retirement Extreme gives us great tips to stop throwing away food. This is one of the easiest things that we can change in order to save money!

No problem.

Thanks for the mention! I really enjoyed Sandy L’s post too!

It was surprising to see that a lot of people feel that way about saving for college!


5 Darwin's Money

Great roundup-and thanks for the mention!
Did today confirm any suspicions about Obaba’s toxic impact to the economy?

I didn’t realize how hard he would pursue these terrible ideas when he was running for office. I figured he was just saying what people wanted to hear! I think he may actually believe some of what he says.


7 Joe Plemon

Thanks for mentioning my post. Much appreciated.


8 Khaleef Crumbley

No problem, and congratulations once again!
