Kent Irwin, who recently wrote a guest article: Is Suze Orman Right, Can You Be Your Own Financial Planner?, sent me a free license to use his eFinPLAN online financial planning software. In this post, I am going to provide you with my initial experience, and I will follow up with a second post to discuss the 64-page report I received — yes, 64 pages! Before I begin, I will share a few things I didn’t like — the interface and usability. It is an old school web site that doesn’t have the crisp Web 2.0 look and feel. ... (more)

When I started blogging, I’d never thought that my writing could possibly impact anyone. Above all else, it was a way for me to learn more about money management. It was more about me than it was about others. This all changed last Friday, when I read a blog post from Cootiehog: Monthly Bill Reduction - How We Did It. In my last post I talked about how I was able to not only restore our Disney fund but send in a huge tithe AND pay off almost 20% of my credit card debt. You may wonder HOW I ... (more)

This afternoon I ran across a few interesting articles I’d like to share. But first, I’d like to remind you that there’s still 17 days left before I pick one lucky winner to receive a $50 Amazon gift certificate.

This article is not meant to convince you to try credit card arbitrage — rather, it’s meant to start a discussion around it.
