Sunday Round-Up for March 20th, 2011

Sunday Round-Up for March 20th, 2011

With all the woes of the world right now, it’s important that we don’t forget to focus on the positives:  Spring is almost here!

Along with all the green grass that springing up around us, many of you may have noticed a couple new people to MomVesting community (commenters).  As a little welcome, I’m going to do my best to include all of our happy commenters in this week’s round-up. 

Jane at Life Doesn’t Begin at Retirement – Life Begins Today is celebrating the fourth year anniversary of her blog, and to celebrate, she’s reposted her very first blog entry

Speaking of retirement, Retire by 40 posted a great blog about “Unexpected Baby Expenses.”  Check it out.

Ravi of Prompt Retirement hit on two great topics in “Ethics and Investing.”

After reading that post, head over and check out Invest it Wisely’s “3 Tips for Investing Your Time, Money, and Energy Wisely.”

Jeff at Sustainable Life Blog had a great guest blog as well.  Head on over and read about “5 New Green Things to Try.”

Money Cactus has a great new look to his blog.  Check it out and read “Wealth Creation: It’s Not About the Money.”

Newlyweds on a Budget posted a rather humorous blog about “How to Fight Like a Grown-Up with Your Husband.”  Ha-ha!  Too funny.

Andrea at Single and Saving posted a very intriguing blog titled, “You Want ME to Help Pay for YOUR Wedding?” 

Spring brings ushers in the final run of tax season.  If you need to Spruce Up Your Finances, check out Ken’s post “Made a Mistake On Your Tax Return?  File an Amended Return.

Speaking of taxes, Money Cone offered a great how-to in “View Your Schedule K-1s Online and Import them Into TurboTax.”

Feeling broke?  Money Reasons tackles the question, “How Many Millions Does It Take to Feel Rich?

Lindy at Minting Nickels shared a nice post about “The Gift of Zero.”

This week, Balance Junkie published a great two-part guest post by Rob Bennett regarding “How to Use Valuation-Informed Indexing.”

In a little older post, but one I thought had a good heart to it, First Gen American discusses how “You Can Always Cut More Out of Your Budget.” 

Speaking of cutting it, check out The Dividend Pig’s recent post, “McDonald’s Analysis:  I’m Still Lovin’ It.”

Sandy at Yes I am Cheap put up a really fun blog post, “Test Your Knowledge of Personal Finance.”  Go do the test.  Did you do as well as you thought you would?

Wealth Pilgrim wrote up a great explanation in “Credit Line Definition in Plain English.”  How’s your credit line looking?
