Top Personal Finance Posts of The Week

Happy Friday everyone! Starting this week I will be doing weekly roundups of the top personal finance posts of the week. These posts are either ones I came across myself and found compelling or ones that were submitted via the blog carnival.

So without further ado, let’s get started!

Jackson from 2009 Tax submitted a post on The Pros and Cons of IRA Conversions. In the post he gives a brief overview of what an IRA conversion is and offers some tips to help you decide if a conversion from a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA makes sense for you.

Judy Blackburn from Debt Consolidation shared a post giving Practical Tips for Saving Money at College. She gives some great ideas on cheap and easy meal ideas and talks about something near and dear to my heart – making your own coffee instead of spending ridiculous amounts at Starbucks.

Jailan Marie presents Find Savings By Reviewing Your Financial Plans. The post offers 10 areas in which businesses can look to cut costs. This isn’t really a post on personal finance, but I included it anyway because it makes some good points. When you are looking at your personal finances don’t have any sacred cows. When you need to cut expenses you should evaluate every item in your budget.

Kyle Taylor sent in a really great post: Kid Entrepreneur Designs Best Selling iPhone App. He tells the story of an 11 year old who has designed a best-selling iPhone app. I love young entrepreneur stories.

Andy Boyd offers his take on Credit Card Stoozing. Credit card stoozing, a.k.a. credit card arbitrage, is a simple process through which you can actually make money from credit cards and high interest bank accounts. This is an interesting idea that does actually work, but can end up costing you a lot of money if you don’t do it right.

Kyle Berks submitted a post on payday loans. I almost didn’t include it because I absolutely hate payday loans. But if you ever do go that route you should Make sure your Payday Loan Lender is Licensed.

That wraps up the posts for this week. If you have a post that you think should be included here you can submit it though our blog carnival.
