Don’t Feed the Alligators

A Personal Finance Blog from a Small-Scale Landlord’s Perspective

I’ve done a lot of blog reading this week and I’d like to point out some of the other articles that have caught my attention:

  • Madison at My Dollar Plan is giving away a $50 Smarty Pig card. I always enjoy a chance at free money.
  • Nickel at Five Cent Nickel had a nice article on why trying to time the market is a bad idea. My mantra is: Past performance is not an indicator of future performance…
  • Along these lines, Madison also published the results of her investment club returns. Looks like things are looking up for the club, but see my mantra above.
  • J.D. posted an article at Get Rich Slowly by Katrina Ramser about the pros and cons of buying cars new vs. used. I’m in the “buy slightly used” camp myself. We have a 7 year old car that we bought new and intend to drive until it won’t go anymore. We also have a van that we bought with just 8,000 miles on it for more than $10,000 less than the new price.
  • Joshua at Game Theorist had a post about an economics lesson for his daughter. I hope my daughter catches on that quick…

I hope you enjoy reading some of these articles.
