Weekend Round-Up

This has been a very busy week for me with packing and preparing for my move to Atlanta come Thursday, but despite all the packing I've been able to read some very interesting posts from my fellow PFBloggers -- I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Kevin @ No Debt Plan shares a personal story of attempted Identity Theft -- I hope its a lesson to all of us not to provide any personal information over the phone.

Living Almost Large shared her and DH's net worth update for March and I have to say this Future Millionaire is dang impressed. Seeing her stats helped remind me that while I think I'm doing a great job of saving there's plenty of room for growth.

Mom @ Wide Open Wallet joined me in responding to No Credit Needed's question about Financial Strength and Weaknesses. Hopefully we'll both find ways to break out of our shells and not be so conservative in our investments.

Get Rich or Die Trying's JB shared how thinking his car needed repairs saved him from a bad financial move.

For those of us who are slightly jaded with all the housing/mortgage meltdown stories, check out Seb @ Pinching Copper's post about how there are no victims in the housing bust.

Jonathan @ Master Your Card shared The College Student's Guide to Credit Cards. I too wish there had been a Banking 101 course offered in High School.

The Social Margin's Cinder posted an amazing article about Planning for your future with out Social Security- Starting Younger. I really appreciate the post and used it as a check list for ensuring I'm on the right track. I'm on tack with Steps 1-3, but a re-occurring theme for this week is that I need to work on Step 4 investing.

I also thought I'd add a round-up from outside of PFBLOGGERS and that's Single Guy Money's post about how his Childhood has influenced his finances. Not only did it help clarify some of his money moves but it also has given me courage -- for the past 2.5 months I've had a draft post sitting in my box about why I save and haven't posted it because it's rather personal about my family - specifically my mom. But after seeing Single Guy's courage to post about his family background I'm going to dust off the post, double check my editing and share it with you all on Tuesday (after all can't miss Monday's Money Funny for the second week in a row).

Thanks for the mention. And don't be. We have a lot of catching up to do!
