Friday Stack: We have snow edition

by Rocket Finance

Here in Wisconsin, we are in the middle of the third snowiest winter in recorded history – and more snow is on the way! It might be a good time to read a few of Paid Twice’s snowflake posts. . .

Rocket Finance was featured in the following carnivals last week:

Home Finance: Mortgages and the Real Cost of Homeownership was a carnival all by itself. I want to thank all of the bloggers who participated. They did a great job – I just wish I had read the article before I purchased my first home.

Don’t use your house to pay for your life was featured in the Carnival of Debt Reduction at Broke Grad Student.

We are heading in the right direction (I think) was featured in the Carnival of Personal Finance at I’ve Paid for This Twice Already.

Some posts that I like include:

Gather Little by Little warns about how credit card companies are out to get you. I think he is right about his premise, but I still try to outsmart them.

Digerati Life tells us how a down year can be good for your investments. I believe her. . . I just don’t have any investments.

Hustlermoneyblog shows how to get more cash out of Sprint. I was successful in my attempt and I bet you can do even better.

Jim from Blueprint for Financial Prosperity relates a story that is floating around the internet. I featured the same allegory last December and I think it has a great deal of validity in explaining our tax system. Check it out and see if you agree.

Articles from Rocket Finance that are worth another look:

Revolution Money Exchange $25 bonus is worth more than $25 if you can refer a few people. It is free money, so don’t pass it up. I think the bonus is being offered for a limited time.

The Intro to Hedging with Lending Club is the first in a series over the next couple of weeks.

Have a great Friday!

    A fellow Wisconsinite! The snow this year has been crazy, our city (a small one) actually had to truck some of it out of town. I’ve never seen that before 🙂
    We’re at -11 degrees today. Will spring ever come?

    Born and bred!

    The last time the winters were like this was in the early 80’s. We in WI are “in favor” of global warming.
