The Second Edition of the 30s and 40s personal finances carnival - wealth accumulation - February 14, 2007

Dear Friends,

I'm on the road and do not have access to some of the postings sent to me before I left home. As a result, I will post the submissions skipped in our next edition (the third edition) scheduled for February 21, 2007.

Stereotyping the 30s and 40s Personal Finance Community
I'm going to start this edition with a post discussing people in their 30s and 40s. I'm putting it here to stimulate a discussion and help us focus articles for the reading audience. This article is makingourway's attempt to put a shape to the people that read and contribute to the blog - if I don't describe you - please post a comment or submit a new posting to the next carnival - I look forward to publishing it!


Budgeting

Steve Leung presents How to Lose Your House posted at 1SiliconValley.com, saying, "Between the speculation and pricing madness during real estate booms, people actually buy houses so they can live long, happy lives there. But home buyers should know that losing a house is a fairly easy thing to do. Here are five common ways people lose their houses."

Rich presents Being "Middle Class" is burying us! posted at Queercents, saying, "So much for the myth of the middle class: on a median two-earner household income of $73,500 (gross), you can’t save for retirement and take an annual vacation—or if you do, you have to cut from your expenses somewhere else."

Randy Yniguez presents The Benefits of Organizing: Financials posted at Randy Yniguez, saying, "These templates have come in handy for me!"

Bogle, the founder of The Vanguard Group, is one of the truly honest men in the financial world. He posted an very insightful WSJ article about how the interests of individual investors and the average ETF have increasingly diverged. His blog deserves greater awareness."
