Interesting Reads From Fellow Personal Finance Bloggers #20

Roundup Graphic by Pecuniarities
I can’t believe we’re almost half-way through 2009 already! Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers and families out there; I hope you’re having a good one. We’ve been busy here working on yet another new project (more on that later when we’re ready for the unveiling.) Now for this week’s roundup.

Roundup of Notable Reads

  • Counting My Pennies talks about breaking things down into per unit costs, something I myself like to do. At my first job where I made $9 an hour, I used to sit at my desk and calculate how much I made per minute, per 5 minutes, per 15 … you get the picture. I’d be putting together a report or labeling office keys (I was a “secretary/receptionist” but basically I was assistant to 4 big bosses and an over-secretary) and think to myself, “Ooh, just made 15 cents!”

    Anyways, check out Megan’s post for a tip on a way to see how much you’re paying per movie through your Netflix plan at  How much does it really cost?

  • Living Well On Less tells of her laptop’s near death experience, a good reminder to frequently backup important files. And don’t drink and type!

  • Money Ning clears up some Misunderstanding of Frugal Living.
  • Almost Frugal offers A Basic Guide to Smart Shopping and warns of seller tricks.

  1. Thanks for including the post. Last month, we managed to live happily on $1500. I thought we’d spent a great deal more…but apparently all we needed to be comfortable (that month, anyway) was the $1500. It’s encouraging, too, since neither of us is in a highly-paid field.
