Top Personal Finance Posts of The Week

Happy Friday! Hope you’ve had a great week. As you roll into the weekend, take a few minutes to check out the top personal finance posts of the week. These are hand-picked posts that were either submitted via the blog carnival or interesting content that I plucked from my feed reader. If you submitted a post and didn’t get picked, don’t worry! There were over 30 submissions this week!

In no particular order, here are my favorite posts of the week:

J.B. and Teacher Man from My University Money asks are Rising Tuition Fees The Next Bubble? With my wife in graduate school right now, I am personally experiencing the pain of ridiculous tuition costs.

James Bush wrote this week about some things you should be aware of if you are Withdrawing from Your 401k Early (If You Absolutely Have To)

Jocelin Boutet posted Needs vs Wants: What’s the Difference? on One Money Design this week. She makes a good point that we have very few actual needs in life. A lot of what we consider needs would be considered a luxury to the majority of the world’s population.

The Penny Hoarder, Kyle Taylor, talked about how a friend of his was thinking about becoming a real estate agent on the side to help generate extra income. Kyle thinks he’s crazy. (And I have to agree!) Is This a Good Time to Start Selling Real Estate Part-Time?

Mike Piper at The Oblivious Investor wrote A Request for Vanguard (or Fidelity, or Schwab…).  He makes a great point: “Why don’t more brokerage firms allow for one-step rebalancing, rather than having to enter a separate transaction for each of your holdings?”

And the award for the top post of the week goes to…..Dividend Growth Investor

His post, How dividend stocks protect investors from inflation, is great for anyone interested in dividend stocks. Don’t let seemingly low yield fool you. “A portfolio of quality dividend stocks with rising earnings and dividends will deliver sufficient income growth to provide an inflation adjusted stream of dividend income while also delivering capital gains in the process.”

If you have a personal finance site and you think one of your posts should be included next week, submit it here!

Have a great weekend!
