Donna Freedman of MSNâ€™s Smart Spending blog linked to a comment I made over at Pinching Copper: There Are No Victims In The Housing Bust. You’ll see that I am really passionate about the topics around the recent sub prime mortgage meltdown. I don’t think ONE person is to blame but I think all parties hold a certain level of responsibility. Still, I think the banks should have known better than to offer up such loans in the first place. Feel free to take a gander around the site and contact me if you have any questions or leave a comment.
Trent, at The Simple Dollar and JD at Get Rich Slowly linked my article 8 Frugal and Cost Cutting Tips for the Newly Independent. Trent added “A ninth tip goes along well here: swallow your pride a little. Itâ€™s easy to get caught up in the idea that you need to have the best of everything. You donâ€™t.” I thought long and hard about that one and I agree. I’ll follow up with a post about it in a few days because so many times we think we have to have the best of everything when in fact we don’t. This is coming from someone who just recently lusted over a $3,000/month apartment with all the bells and whistles.
