This week I’m running my Student Loan series, where I’ll be giving a ton of information about student loans. I’ll go pretty in depth about the need for student loans, the different types, repayment options, and the effects of taxes. I put a lot of time into this, so I’m hoping it gets a good reception. Come back tomorrow and find out whether college is worth the cost!
I read some awesome posts this week that I’m really pumped about. It seems like bloggers put some serious effort into guest posting and sometimes those articles are simply the best. The first two links are well thought out and extremely interesting articles that I absolutely loved.
The best post I read this week was by Jacob from Early Retirement Extreme about how he saved 75% in order to retire early. A $500 per month budget! Can you imagine??
Meanwhile, on Early Retirement Extreme, an Anonymous Lawyer guest posted his thoughts about sucking it up and working for 5 more years so that he could retire early. Really great stuff.
Jason of Redeeming Riches guest posted at Bible Money Matters about whether to Use a Roth IRA for College Savings. Really interesting if you’re eligible to contribute to one.
Kevin of Out of Your Rut guest posted on Fiscal Geek about why you should Stop Obsessing on Your Credit Score. I completely agree that a few points won’t make much of a difference unless you’re about to make a big purchase (house or car). Instead, we should focus on the big things. If we take care of those, everything else will fall into place.
