Happy Friday and an early Happy Mother’s Day to all of you mom’s out there. We’ll be heading out Sunday for brunch, and I’ll be lucky to celebrate with my mom, my wife (who’s a wonderful mom) and my mother-in-law. Thanks for all you do, moms!
Here are a few links for blog posts that I enjoyed, as well as carnivals that I participated in this week:
- Everybody Loves Your Money has a great reminder of why it’s important to plan and save for the future, but also to enjoy what you have today. Balance is the key, and this happy/sad story serves as a great reminder.
- Wise Bread shares some ways that you can see movies for free. Hey, I’m all about free and I love movies, so this seems like a great idea!
- Conversely, How I Save Money won’t be saving money on one particular household item, and is perfectly OK with that. I happen to agree 100% with this one!
- Narrow Bridge has a great, well written explanation on why Berkshire Hathaway does not pay dividends. Many so-called finance ‘experts’ use dividends as a key method of determining how ‘investable’ a company is, but turns out, they might have it backwards.
- Military Wallet hosted the 278th edition of the Festival of Frugality
- Live Real Now hosted the 307th Carnival of Personal Finance
- I hosted the Totally Money Carnival #17 right here at Money Beagle this week.
Have a great weekend and a very Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms!
