Credit Addict asked me to share my thoughts in six words. Wow, six words?

Kids & Family. Life & Happiness. Goals & Money.

In that order (and no, the & signs don’t count!) While I write about money like it’s the answer, it’s not my top priority. Here’s who I’m calling on next to share their six word memoir:

$50 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway

Don’t forget, if you haven’t entered the $50 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway you still have until Thursday night to enter. Now, onto my favorite personal finance picks this week…

Housing Market

Common Costly Blunders When Selling Your Home
One of the tips that I noticed: “Remember that what you NEED from your home may not be what you’ll GET from your home in today’s real estate market.”

The Pros and Cons of Going Into Foreclosure
Wow. I guess I didn’t realize there were pros of foreclosure! Although I can see how some of the choices are better than the alternatives.

Have you seen the tiny, tiny little car buzzing around town? It’s a Smart ForTwo and it actually passed the insurance crash test!

How I Invested My Roth IRA This Year
Remember back when I told you that you could invest Lazy Man’s Roth IRA money? See where the money ended up.

Get $206 in Free Groceries!
My local grocery store is doing the 10% bonus for gift cards. The problem is that you have to spend the entire economic stimulus check there. For us that is $1800 +$180, or almost $2,000 in groceries. It would take us over 8 months to buy that many groceries! Since we get 5% back on all our groceries with a cash rewards credit card we’re going to pass. I think it’s a great deal for people who are getting smaller checks though.

Time Management And Money Management
NCN finds that “one of the root causes of poor money management is poor time management.” I love reading about time management because I never feel like I have enough time in the day for everything I want to do.

Comments to My Six Word Memoir, The Ridiculously Small Car, and the Housing Market

  2. fine, fine, fine… you’re the 2nd or 3rd person to link to me. I give…

  3. Wow, all $1800! That is a lot of food. 🙂

    I like how Kroger allows customers to buy in $300 increments, which makes it easier to space out the purchases and not spend more than needed. Thanks for the mention. 🙂


  4. Awesome. Thanks for playing!

  5. I was going to mention the same thing that Patrick did. With Kroger, you don’t have to produce a check from the IRS. You do have to buy a giftcard in $300 increments, but you can actually charge it to a credit card or write a personal check.

  6. Thanks for the tag – might take me a while to answer!

  7. @ Patrick & Cathy: I’ll have to check if I can buy $300 worth. We don’t have a Kroger’s here, but maybe our store (Roundy’s) is running it the same way. Thanks for the tip.
