In this event I delved into each emotion (compassion, love, rage, willpower, fear, death, hope and avarice) and gave my opinion on how each relates to personal finance. Below is a recap of each article that you can find scattered throughout the blogosphere today.
Willpower – At Debt Free Adventure you will find my story of how my willpower lead me to change from a hyper consumer with a gambling problem to someone with their finances under control and keeping my addictions at bay.
Fear – When making decisions where several thousands of dollars are at stake, its normal to feel a certain amount of fear. At Bargaineering you will read about eleven different fearful situations and suggestions on how to mitigate fear in those scenarios through preparation, education and some creative strategies.
Rage – Relationships and money don’t play well together. At Poorer than You I go in depth into ways to discuss finances with your partner so that no one’s feelings get hurt. With so many marriages ending in divorce because of money, it’s important to find ways to communicate openly and effectively.
Hope – You know what you are getting when you head to Budgets Are Sexy. There I discuss how hope is nothing without taking action and how there is no better day than today to make small, measurable improvements to your life.
Death – The time is coming for Congress to start debating the Death/Estate tax. At Free Money Finance you will find the current taxation rules as well as ways one can circumvent paying taxes on a large part of their estate when they pass.
Avarice – Have you ever seen someone showing off an expensive purchase giving you reason to shake your head and ask, “Why would you even bother to own that?” At Consumerism Commentary I look at 6 different items that represent conspicuous spending – owning to be seen owning them.
Love – Love is the one emotion that will make us forget about all the personal finance rules we have learned from one another. At Mrs. Micah’s Finance for a Freelance Life I look at ways to prepare yourself for the worst case scenario in case you are forced with having to aid a loved one in need regardless of the financial ramifications.
Compassion – The recession has had everyone down this year. However, during the holidays people tend to be a bit nicer and a bit more giving. At Get Rich Slowly you will find 9 suggestions on how to give back to your community that won’t break your bank.
I really hope you enjoyed this series. It was a lot of hard work to produce in a short amount of time. I wouldn’t have been able to pull it off if it wasn’t for each of the bloggers that hosted an article (so please make it to each one of their sites at some point today!) and my friend Baker from Man vs. Debt (who encouraged me throughout the process). If you enjoyed reading today’s articles throughout the blogosphere, you should subscribe to my feed for more blogging goodness. Have a happy thanksgiving and see everyone next week!
