I’m sitting in my backyard after a strenuous 2 hours in the hot sun weed whacking and mowing. Time to take a break with a nice cold Coca-Cola and highlight some of the bright spots in the Personal Finance world this week.
Let me also take a moment to give a shout-out to my new subscribers. It’s been a banner week with MSN.com highlighting my post Frugal Fix: Revive your Cell Phone or Electronic Devices from Water Damage

StretchyDollar Reminds Us to Not Forget the Work Part
Over at the Simple Dollar Trent presents A Two Account System for Automated Savings a little something I like to call: Finautomationâ„¢ okay it’s not really trade-marked, you can use it. This is an interesting idea for those who can’t seem to wrap their head around a more formal budget plan.
You might want to check out my 3 part series on the Zero Based Budget System I utilize: Zero Based Budget System Part 1 I use a combination of Finautomation and good old fashion budgeting to manage my money.
Kevin a guest poster at Debt Free Adventure shows us some Powerful Advantages of Renting a Home before Buying. I wish I had read this before I began my initial foray into home ownership 10 years ago. Zero down seemed like such a good idea.
We’ll end this weeks highlights with Jim’s look at How Debt Settlement Works over at Bargaineering. This is a must read if you are contemplating this process yourself and is a solid bit of information from a trusted source rather than a late night radio advertisement.
Thanks for reading and have a great weekend.
