6 Useful Money Links

In no particular order...

  1. Refinery29 takes an interesting look at how people spend their money in their Money Diaries section.  Very interesting!
  2. The deadline for open enrollment for the healthcare marketplace is December 15th!
  3. Most of my shopping is done at either the Goodwill (clothes) and everything else (online).  A great way to find bargains online is at DealNews.
  4. The cost of our internet recently went up.  The best deal they could give me was by adding basic cable TV which cost $60 per month for both (as opposed to $61 for internet only).  After not having cable for years, I was really disappointed in basic cable--it gave us about 15 stations total(!?!) plus HBO.  After a week of this, we switched back to our regular over-the-air antenna for TV which gives us 50+ stations and lots of great programming.  I stopped by our local cable office and told the guy how disappointed I was and he found be a better deal on internet only ($50).  The cable box goes back tomorrow.
  5. Even though December is super busy, here are a bunch of financial moves you might want to take advantage of before the end of the year.
  6. Reddit is a goldmine of information (and a huge time suck but I digress...).  One of my favorite sub reddits is personal finance.  Be sure to check the sidebar for related sub reddits to help you save even more money.
