Every Tuesday, I will post a link roundup of articles I’ve found while researching the Internet. If you’re a frequent visitor, you’ve probably noticed the yellow and black icon in the right menu and in the left of this post. That is the badge for those that have joined the Yakezie Challenge. No, I did not join a Japanese gang, rather a network of passionate personal finance bloggers dedicated to working together. Why Yakezie? Well, it is the brain child of Sam, author of Financial Samurai. He has done an excellent job building a personal financial website that is fun, educational and entertaining using Japanese warriors as a theme.
This week’s roundup highlights some of the great articles I’ve discovered being part of the challenge. I’ve enjoyed them and hope you will too!
Deliver Away Debt had an AWESOME guest post that was simply nostalgic ~ Fighting Debt Ninja Turtles Style! If you grew up watching the TMNT cartoons, movies or played the video games, you’ll really enjoy this. See what type of ninja turtle you are. (@deliverawaydebt)
The Amateur Financier also appealed to my “inner child” with Learning Financial Lessons from Aesops Fables. If you grew up learning about the Ant and the Grasshopper, the Tortoise and the Hare, the Dog and the Bone, and other such stories. This will bring back memories and add a financial twist.
Planting Dollars posted a thought provoking article earlier this week. Rich Friends / Poor Friends: Can You Be Their BFF (best friend forever)? There is an interesting concept discussed saying you are the sum of the five people you spend the most time with. (@PlantingDollars)
Sweating the Big Stuff lists 5 of the Worst ways to Save Money. Saving money is great, but not when it costs your integrity or friendships. This article does an excellent job of pointing that out. (@DanielPacker)
