Money Hacks Carnival #27 at Personal Finance Buzz
This week Money Hacks Carnival is at Personal Finance Buzz. In this edition, I posed some fun financial dilemmas for you to think about. Feel free to use it for your future writing materials. Now, let’s go to the editor’s picks:
- 100 Tips and Tools for a Better, Greener Career at JobProfiles.org – 100 resources to help you find a career that suits your desire for better, greener employment.
- Step By Step Guide To Grocery Savings at artofthecoupon.com — Four great tips on how to save money on food and other household items.
- 36 Ways to Reduce Your Home’s Energy Use at Trees Full of Money — With energy prices on the rise, and the sustainability of our environment in question, Ben shares some of the energy saving tips that he picked up over the years.
- Real Estate and Mortgages: Tips for selling or buying a house at Bible Money Matters — Pete shares his experience with Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University.
- 10 tips to becoming a Make Money Online sheep at Swollen Pickles — I normally wouldn’t include something like this in a personal finance carnival, but it’s freaking hilarious and I couldn’t resist.
Here are the list of all the dilemmas posed:
- Renting versus buying a house. The traditional answer is to own your own home because you’re building equity and there’s also tax benefits. What’s your opinion and why?
- Invest versus mortgage pre-payment. The PF Blogosphere is heavily divided on this issue. Personally, I like the financial flexibility of investing over the guaranteed saving of pre-payment. Which one would you choose and why?
- Should you build an emergency fund or pay down your debt first? I like to save money by paying down debt as fast as I can, but many will disagree. What would you do and why?
- Saving for retirement versus paying down debt. Both are important and can have great financial impact. How would you prioritize the two?
- Frugality versus cheap. What are the key differences between these two qualities?
- ETFs versus mutual funds. Both are fantastic investment products, but which one would you choose and for what reasons?
- Good debt versus bad debt. Is there such a thing as good debt?
