Ben Dinsmore presents Guide to Your Employer’s Benefits Package Part 1: Health Insurance posted at Trees Full of Money, saying, “Choosing the right health insurance plan during your company’s “open enrollment” period can be a stressful proposition, especially if you are already stretched for time between work and family obligations.”
True. Open enrollment is always stressful for me, too. This year it’s especially stressful due to the fact that my company no longer exists (for all intents) and our open enrollment period, while open and you have to make a choice, is for naught, since we’ll all be fired soon.
NtJS presents College Kids and Credit Cards posted at not the jet set, saying, “Here’s one for the big kids!”
Practical advice about kids and credit cards. I fell for it and it took me a long time to recover. In some ways, I think I still am!
Raymond presents Where Are The 12 Month 0% No Balance Transfer Fee Credit Card Offers? posted at Money Blue Book.
All the money is gone! It all disappeared with my home value.
Raymond presents Where Is The Safest Place To Save Or Invest Your Money? posted at Money Blue Book.
Silicon Valley Blogger presents Toys R Us Coupons and Age Discrimination posted at The Digerati Life, saying, “There are coupons out there that aren’t very clear about eligibility requirements. Who exactly is a “grandparent”?”
Those 3 words cause me constant grief: Toys R Us! But to answer the question, I think any one can consider themselves a “grand parent” if they’re a parent. They don’t need grand children, nor do they need be buying for their family!
Weight Ladder / Rich Leverage presents Getting Motivated to Organize Your Finances posted at Rich Leverage, saying, “Teens and up.”
Organization of personal finances is something I struggle with every day! I hope that my kids can learn some ways to organize their finances that have eluded me. I certainly will not be their role model for this topic!
Lazy Man and Health presents Working Two Jobs at the Same Time posted at Lazy Man and Money, saying, “Post would be best for teens/adults.”
I think Lazy Man is onto something! The future may have in store for us less full-time work but more opportunities — your child may indeed have to become very adept at “multi-tasking.”
Michelle McFarland-McDaniels presents Autism Assistance Resources and Information: Upromise is a Promising Resource for College Savings posted at Autism Assistance Resources and Information.
