The Wealth Builder Carnival #14

Welcome to fourteenth edition of The Wealth Builder Carnival. The purpose of this carnival is to collect articles from the blogosphere on building, preserving and keeping enough wealth for a comfortable retirement. For reference, I have tried to keep the carnival content tightly focused on wealth building and did not include submissions that were off topic.

For reading convenience, I have listed the posts with brief summaries by the authors and organized them into seven categories: Earning, Investing, Insuring and Protecting, Living Frugally, Retiring, Saving and Taxes.

And now onto the Carnival:


Asked For and Got a Raise - "After a year, I decided to ask for a raise at one of my part-jobs."

Insuring and Protecting

16 Dividend Stocks Growing Future Yield -"In the southern U.S. where I live, there has been some controversy over harvesting forests of hardwoods and reseeding them with pines. Growing hardwoods is very similar to investing in dividend stocks. What you plant or invest in today will not yield much for years to come. That is not to say progress is not seen. It is just slow and deliberate."

How to Buy and Sell Physical Gold and Silver, Part 1 - "Ever want to know the specifics of how to buy physical gold and silver? This interview with a gold/silver expert will give you all the details!"

High Yield ETFs – An Alternative to Dividend Paying Stocks? -"There are many financial tools that can be used by the average investor to generate dividend income. From high yield REITs and CanRoys to blue chip companies who are members of the dividend aristocrats, the opportunities seem to be endless. Another option for income investors seeking to quickly build a diversified portfolio are high yield ETFs."

How to Pull the Plug on Your Best Friend, Save Energy, and Still Have Stored Meat -"By pulling the plug on your best friend, I’m referring to your freezer. You can pull the plug completely, or at least drastically downsize the freezer spacer you need, drastically downsizing your electric bills."

Buying a New Cellphone: An Obsession - "Buying a new cellphone can be expensive, but there is a way to upgrade without paying any money..."

Cars Under $1000: How to Find Them -"If you are getting out of debt or simply looking for a car for your kids, it might be best to find a car for less than $1000. Here are tips for finding one that isn't a lemon."


15 Financial Failings That Will Prevent An Early Retirement! - "For those of us who want to retire comfortably and do so while we still have the energy to enjoy our free time, personal vices must be kept to a minimum. Eliminate or at least put off indulging in bad habits that will cost you money in both the short and long term, and you will reach your goal of a relaxing retirement that much sooner ..."
